Ever wonder why so many really good TIG welders use a #5 cup with standard collet body on aluminum?
There is a reason. In fact there are several reasons.
Not only can you save some argon, but a #5 cup can limit the etching zone and actually get better penetration than a larger cup using the same amperage. (I have proved this out with many tests.)
My good friend Roy Crumrine (@crummywelding on instagram) uses a standard #5 all the time on a #20 style water cooled torch.
But what if you don't have a water cooled torch?
That is exactly why I put this kit together for you. Not only does it shrink the size of your #17, #18, or 26 style torch, but it lets you use the small #5 cup that so many pro welders like.
An easy way to know what gas flow to use with most cups is to multiply the cup number by 2 to 3. I find that 2.5 works most of the time.
So with a #5 cup, the range is 10-15 with 12.5 being the sweet spot.
Over time, the gas savings adds up.
I have used this kit with several different torches including some torches that came with the AHP alpha tig 200, Everlast 200dx, Lincoln tig 200, and a whole bunch of air cooled CK tig torches.
It comes with a #5 cup, 3/32” collet body, 3/32” collet, 2 different style heat Shield insulators to make sure it fits all torches, and a short button end cap to help you get into tight areas.

Definitely top notch products, you can also learn a lot from Jody's videos online, they definitely improved my aluminum welding.
Working great my welds got better first time the closer and more comfortable to the puddle the less shake I have in my welds really a great product less time being shaky and swimming my tungsten more time welding if your welding aluminum with the 17 torch you need this kit
I have been using for the past week and working great. Seems to be consuming less Argon though I’d like to see an extra collet or two in the kit. Thanks Jody.
Great product. Can't wait to use it
Works great!!! Day I received my kit, I put it to use, welded for around 7hrs and this thing blew my mind, I had no idea it would make that much of an improvement!!! I highly recommend!!!!
