    Yup, you need to size the collet to the diameter of the tungsten. Part of the learning process.

    The Diversion 165 comes with a collet for 3/32 tungstens. That's probably what you should ask for.

    And don't buy budget brand chinese soft copper parts. Ask for genuine weldcraft parts.

    I like the Weldtec brand myself. Like all the good parts, they use tellurium copper alloy to make thiers.

    thank you for your answers, i was wondering why there was a need for a different collet, after looking at the collet, the manufacturer could of made a one size fits all, but thats the way it is i guess, and much agree on chinese junk, there is no place for that crap in my shop, people think that they save big money buying import crap

    After I got my 165 I bought a kit from Arc-Zone.com that had all of the assorted bits I'm ever likely to need. It's an AK2-pro for the WP-17 torch. I'm well pleased with the assortment that allows me to experiment and learn without a thousand trips to the supply store.

    I think this is the link http://www.arc-zone.com/index.php?ma...oducts_id=3586
