  • Looking for a smaller torch for my miller econotig

    I have a Miller Econotig. I have the wp-17 torch now. Problem is, its toooo big to get into tight areas. Is there a wp-9 torch made that is a direct fit to replace the wp-17? Preferably one that will just replace the torch and not the whole lead. ThanksBrianM&M Chassis Shop

      For tight places I kinda like the WP-24 series torches.. they are available in both gas and water cooled flavors...

        OR... Extended cup...

        In some applications you can get a deeper reach by using the long extended cups...

            CK 9 torch

            I really like my CK 9 torch with a flex head, bought with superflex cable from Tig Depot. I kept my old torch for when I am using larger currents. The WP17 is rated for 150 amps continuous, the CK9 for 125 amps continuous. The CK 9 is generally set up with the button cap, as I often need to get into tight spaces.

            I generally have the 1/16 tungsten in the CK 9, and the 3/32 in the WP-17, although I have 1/8 inch tungsten if I am using larger currents on AC. Stubby gas lens kits are good.
