    Weldcraft WP-17 Tig Torch

    I just bought a new 25' Weldcraft WP-17 tig torch, to do a stainless steel weld job. The torch is a single combination power/gas hose with the Miller twist connect, with the 12" pigtail for the shielding gas hook up. The torch design has been change to make is very similar to the Miller Diamondback tig torch line, not really surprising as both companies are owned by ITW, with finger grooves for better control with gloves on and hand comfort. A job done for the company and a new torch for my Miller Maxstar 200.

    It will do 200A (that is what Miller sends with the sync 200s) but she gets hot fast!

    I do a lot of 16ga stainless. Before I got a water cooled I used a #9 air cooled they are 125 amp. Then if you go up to a water cooled #20 all the cups, collets and holders from the 9 will fit the #20 And besides the 9 is lightweight. and a lot more compact than a 17.

    The 17 and 225 share the same consumables as well.
    The difference between art and craft is the quality of the workmanship. I am an artist.
