    diversion 165

    gotta be quick here, tried to change tungston size today, the collet is too big, the book does not mention any thing about this, am i missing some thing here or do i go to lws again, i bought the tungston at the same lws as i bought the welder, no mention on their part

    After I got my 165 I bought a kit from Arc-Zone.com that had all of the assorted bits I'm ever likely to need. It's an AK2-pro for the WP-17 torch. I'm well pleased with the assortment that allows me to experiment and learn without a thousand trips to the supply store.

    I think this is the link http://www.arc-zone.com/index.php?ma...oducts_id=3586

    thank you for your answers, i was wondering why there was a need for a different collet, after looking at the collet, the manufacturer could of made a one size fits all, but thats the way it is i guess, and much agree on chinese junk, there is no place for that crap in my shop, people think that they save big money buying import crap

    And don't buy budget brand chinese soft copper parts. Ask for genuine weldcraft parts.

    I like the Weldtec brand myself. Like all the good parts, they use tellurium copper alloy to make thiers.

    The Diversion 165 comes with a collet for 3/32 tungstens. That's probably what you should ask for.

    As well as the collet body and/or gas lense.

    Yup, you need to size the collet to the diameter of the tungsten. Part of the learning process.
