CK Stubby Gas Lens Kit (+Bonus DVD!)
Have a #17 or #26 Tig Torch?
Wish your torch was smaller?
Our Stubby Gas Lens Kit fits #17 and #26 Series TIG torches (The BIG style 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!
(*kit is not compatible with a #9 or #20 torch*)

Here's what's included:
- 1/16", 3/32" & 1/8" ( 1.6mm, 2.4mm, and 3.2mm) size collets and gas lens collet bodies
- 3 aluminum cups (#6, #7, #8 size)
- Heat shield adapter
- Short and long back cap
Plus, it even comes with 2% lanthanated electrodes in 1/16", 3/32" & 1/8" ( 1.6mm, 2.4mm, and 3.2mm)... one of each size.
You can shorten the total length of a big torch by over half with this kit, and the small back cap, and help 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. Fits imported torches, also.
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 and simple setup of an air cooled torch, ability to weld at higher amperage than a small #9 torch, and better gas shielding from the gas lens.
