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.

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!"

CK Stubby Gas Lens Kit is great!

Looks like I'm able to use less gas with these lens kits plus being able to get into smaller spaces is a win, win. I'm new to TIG welding and anything that will ease my efforts is a big plus for me.

Stubby gas lens kit

Great kit, really nice gas lenses. The free tungsten was a nice touch. The free tig finger bundle with my order was a real bonus.

What a difference

Before having this kit my welding repairs always needed to be shined up. After using this kit on my scratch start setup there is no comparison. Flicking out always left quite the nastiness behind, now i can flick out and cover and restart without filling *** much or taking a grinder with me everywhere. My torch doesnt wear me out any more and you can fit this thing everywhere. Thanks Jody love the kit, case, and all of your useful videos.

Great Product/Excellent Customer Service

I purchased Stubby Gas Lens Kit with the bonus dvd and could not be more satisfied with the product and the customer service from the Weldmonger store. The kit arrived arrived without the dvd, but when notified of the problem it was corrected immediately and with a generous inclusion of a TIG Finger as an extra. The stubby kit is well worth the cost and has performed well beyond my expectations. I can also say the same for the TIG Finger. The videos are worth the cost of the kit alone. Thanks Weldmonger! You've got a loyal customer.

Don't hesitate! This kit rocks!

If you're like me you probably are debating weather or not to buy this, I mean 80 bucks can be spent a lot of different ways, all I can say is I wish I bought this kit a long time ago! Everything jody says about the benefit of a stubby kit is true, but for me I find the stubby wide lenses give me a much better control when walking the cup. I always had trouble with the standard length nozzles and lenses because they create a longer axis which translates to faster and less control when walking the cup. The dvd was interesting to watch, great way to **** some time on a lazy day and some awesome info I'd never seen or heard before.
