There are sellers on ebay that sell consumables for cheaper, but the do not always fit. There are numerous versions of the torches for the 50amp cutter. Check out www.freeweldingforum.com for articles about customers that bought off ebay and ended up returning them because of the diameter of the consumables not being applicable to our torches.
The torch you have is rated up to 50amps. If you want, please provide me with a link on ebay and i can check it out for you.

I do want to say that my 50 amp made clean cuts on one inch steel.

Those look like they may work. Our 50amp unit can do up to 3/4 but that is pushing the machine to its maximum. The cut will look very ugly at that thickness, but for $500.00 - you will get a unit that will cut 1/2" or even 5/8"
As advertised here:
You can try getting those tips and see if the seller will honor a refund if they dont fit your needs. Our tips are made by the same factory that produces the torches so there is no issue with a perfect fit. Those torches have two different versions a RED headed top and a BLACK.
Let me know if you have anymore questions.

I have your 50 amp machine and it did a clean cut on one inch.Thats what I was saying is that I am very happy with the machine so far I just think your consumablers are kinda high.The thing i would like to know is what is the differance in 40 amp and 50 amp consumables the ones I showed you say 40 amp but look like my 50 amp ones.

Wow.... I am glad the 50 amp plasma cutter was able to reach 1" nicely for you. Please share some photos if you get a chance. If you give us a call, we can get you a good deal on consumables as well. I am not sure if we can match ebay, but i see they are also shipping from China. The factory looks to be in Shenzhen.
As far as our 40/50amp torches. We use a 50amp rated torch on both the 40amp cutter and 50amp cutter. This allows us to have a more universal torch and more consumables available for our customers, while not affecting the quality of the equipment.
