The New and Improved Stubby Gas Lens Kit. Now Includes cup sizes 4-8 and a Furick 1/16, 3/32, 1/8 Gas Lens. (This sets you up to use the clear Furick cups without having to buy adapter kits for each size electrode...saving you over $74)

If you are still using the standard 2 inch long cups that came with your TIG torch, this kit is a game changer.

 Have a #17 or #26 Tig Torch and Wish Your Torch Was Smaller? 

We have good news! Weldmonger's Stubby Gas Lens Kit fits both #17 and #26 Series TIG torches. Now you'll be able to squeeze into those tight spots with small gas lens style cups normally used on a 9 or 20 Tig torch!

(Note: This kit is not compatible with a #9 or #20 torch)

Comment from viewer-- "BTW, recently received my stubby gas lens kit. I never realized it cuts your torch length nearly in half, I should have ordered one sooner! Thank you sir for making those kits and everything else you do for the community."

Here is What is Included:

  • 1/16", 3/32" & 1/8" ( 1.6mm, 2.4mm, and 3.2mm) size CK collets and Furick gas lens collet bodies (works with both clear and ceramic cups)
  • 5 aluminum cups (#4, #5, #6, #7, #8 size)
  • Heat shield adapters ( one for CK torches and one for all others ensuring a good fit no matter what brand torch you have)
  • Short, medium, and long back caps
  • This kit even comes with 2% lanthanated electrodes in 1/16", 3/32" & 1/8" ( 1.6mm, 2.4mm, and 3.2mm), one of each size!

Kit Features:

You can shorten the total length of a big torch by over half with this kit, along with the small back cap, and get into those tight spots! This kit fits all 17 & 26 Series Air Cooled torches, including the Lincoln PTA-17 and PTA-26 torches, Miller Diamondback DB17 and DB 26 torches, along with the Weldcraft LS-17, WP-17 and WP-26 torches. These pieces fit imported torches as well!

Jody's Two Cents:

"The most common TIG torch is an air cooled #17 style torch. It's what I learned with, and it's fine for practicing welding on a bench where nothing is in your way, but as soon as you start tackling real jobs, you realize that something is almost always in your way. 

Whether it's a cluster joint with a tight angle on a roll cage, or a doubler on the inside of a piece of square tubing, or making a weld on a boiler tube where other tubes are only an inch away, a Stubby Gas Lens Kit turns a big torch into a much smaller torch that can still handle the amperage.

The gas lens will give you better gas shielding than the standard cups, too. So your stainless welds will look better. If you have ever used a small style TIG torch (a #9 air cooled, or a #20 water cooled), it's hard to go back to a big torch. A #9 air cooled torch is nice and small but just won't handle welding for very long over 100 amps. A #20 torch is water cooled and you can spend nearly $1000 on a water cooled torch, fittings, coolant, and cooler. 

With a Stubby gas lens kit, you get the best of both worlds— affordability, the simple setup of an air-cooled torch, the ability to weld at higher amperage than a small #9 torch, and better gas shielding from the gas lens.

This kit is a no brainer.

You might even want to add a Jazzy 10 ceramic cup to your cart for even better gas shielding and longer stickout!"
