    Tig hose broke

    My mini chinese tig gas hose cracked.its the hose to the torch. The fitting is a compression type so i assume the pressure is high. Can this be repaired?

    Typical shielding gas pressures are around 50psi, so not that high pressure. Braid-reinforced vinyl hose (thick wall) of the same size will suffice.

    YOu also may want to check the regulator to be sure the pressure is not creeping up higher then is should be.

    Just trim off the end and reinstall with the compression sleeve.

    The hose is falling apart, needs to be replaced. Saw some on amazon. Are compression fittings universal? I was told this tig machine is italian, not chinese and decent.Name:  20211018_170508.jpg
