    Aftermarket tig kit for miller 215

    Hi,

    Miller sells the contactor tig kit 680$ CAN (US$540) for torch, pedal, regulator.
    I heard good things about CK superflex torches and SSC pedals, and was wondering if it's a better deal going that way. My LWS could sell me aftermarket kit (no idea what it is for torches etc) for more than the Miller kit.

    If I go with CK CK17, is the CK "CK17-12-RSF RG TIG Torch Pkg 150A 12-1/2' 1pc RG SuperFlex" the right one for my machine? That with an SSC pedal could be much cheaper than the miller kit.

    Would missing only the regulator with that kit.

    That torch would work fine, and I really prefer the superflex cable that has vs. the standard rubber torch cable. Much more convenient. However, you will need to get a gas-through 25 dinse connector for the torch so it can connect to your welder (I assume it is the Millermatic 215?). Also, that torch doesn't come with any consumables, so you will need collet, collet body (gas lens would be my preference) nozzle/cup and tungsten electrodes. So factor that in.

    Either way, even if the cost was the same I'd prefer to get the CK torch with superflex cable and the SSC pedal, as compared to what comes with the Miller kit. Nothing wrong with the Weldcraft/Miller torch, but I just really prefer the superflex cable.

    This is the connector you would need for the end of whatever torch you buy (9 or 17 style/size). It is the 25mm gas through dinse.

    Just for giggles, HTP has an aftermarket contractor kit for the Miller 215 that has that CK torch and SSC pedal, flowmeter, and all other connectors for $330 and free shipping. http://www.usaweld.com/Miller-Multim...multi215ck.htm

    The kit above would be the way to go.

    You can also get the Miller badged kit for $65 more, but I am not sure it is worth the extra money.

    Yup, nice kit. I'd prefer that any day vs. the Miller accessory kit. Just my opinion.

    On Ebay the HTP kit would be around 475$ CAN shipped, the miller around 550$. The 680$ was at kmstools, an online canadian WS. So prices varies a lot. HTP kit would be my go-to as I see here, or else getting separate parts but probably going to be about the same at the end.

    Thanks for your answers!

    Interestingly enough, looks like the Harbor Freight/Vulcan TIG kit is a direct plug in for the 215:

    I stopped by HF yesterday to pick up a replacement ground clamp, and noticed the TIG kit for their Vulcan branded multi-process machines. Kit looks pretty solid, and includes a consumable kit and shield gas hose...also includes the 25mm through-flow DINSE connector for the Miller machine. Only thing it lacks is the foot pedal and regulator. I already have an extra Victor regulator, so I went ahead and picked up the Vulcan TIG kit. Now, all I need is the foot pedal, and I'll have around $100-150 less in this kit than the Miller.
