Basic TIG Hardware Bundle (3/32")
The Basic TIG Hardware Bundle comes with the Basic Stubby Gas Lens Kit, a Tig Finger, and a Tig Finger XL, all for $57.99!
(Don't have a #17 or #26 style torch? Check out the Weldmonger TIG Hardware Bundle here.)
My new Basic Stubby Gas Lens Kit setup is for 3/32” (2.4mm) electrodes - which is the most used size because a 3/32” 2% lanthanated electrode can weld razor blades and will also handle nearly 200 amps AC (on most welders) and about 250 on DC… and fits all 17 and 26 Series TIG torches.
This kit comes with a #8 gas lens style cup but also allows you to use any of your 9 or 20 gas lens style cups on your 17 or 26 torch head. ( the white insulator heatshield that comes with the kit is the key)
My kit comes comes with a 3/32” (2.4mm) collet and gas lens collet body, a #8 cup, heat shield, short,medium, and long back caps.
Also included is a 3/32” (2.4mm) 2% lanthanated electrode. So if you have been wanting to try 2% lanthanated ..now you can.
The real benefits of using this Basic Stubby Gas Lens kit is that you can shorten your torch by almost half. And that might mean the difference between getting in a tight area…or not.
You will also be able to extend your tungsten further than you can with standard collet body that comes with most torches.
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.
I have also used it quite often with the Trafimet style torches found on imported machines
