    Willy B,

    Took my last drink in 1979 so that should not be a problem (-:

    Don't worry you won't. Just..... when you drink most of a fifth of Jack, stay away from the computer.

    if you convert the front panel to Gas-Thru Dinse then you could use a water cooled adaptor like on a Linc SqWave Tig 175...

    I just read the above mentioned thread - Wow!!

    A tutorial on how to not make friends and influence people.

    I humbly hope I NEVER have that kind of attitude (-:

    Thanks for the input.

    Just figured that you might want to look at it from all the angles...

    if I were going to go the water cooled route with that machine... the Gas-Thru Dinse would be my choice...

    Just figured that both the pro and con of modifying it from factory spec/voiding warranty... were worth looking at...

    that thread did that... despite the unpleasantries.....

    Glad it brought some sunshine into your Sunday morning...

    Although if it were my Diversion... I would probably just put a "Stubby Kit" on the factory provided 17 series torch and run 9/20 series cups.. collets and consumables for about $50 ..and be done with it..

    It's the INFO that matters...

    That poster seems to be long gone...

    but the INFO in the thread could still be useful..

    opposing viewpoints and all.....

    Dinse to Water cooled

The torch lead coming out of the 180 is fixed in place by a clamping fitting. Does anyone know what I am going to get into when I remove the cover of the machine to try to swap torches?Jim
