    BUT, I found a site.. Millerwelds4less that has the 3 lines for about 120 bucks. that is not to bad. IF I want the red, blue colors, they are a little more.
    It says they are true Miller parts.
    Anyone have experience with these guys?

    the 20 & 9 series cups... collets... gas lens... etc... all interchange... the W-250 uses the same parts....

    Miller changed all the names when they bought Weldcraft...WHY..?? who knows

    here is a guide that translates the model numbers

    EXCEPT, the torch that came with the package is a diamondback torch. The only number I see on the torch is "20M" on the torch head.
    I had the rubber reinforced lines. I want them again. It looks like line replacement (all 3, as I have not pressure tested gas line, but 2 leaking, the third probably is) is $75 or more.
    Should I just buy a new torch assembly, complete?
    Why would one want/ need quick disconnect hose ends? I know why... but are they really useful?
    Thanks
    Oh.... I could use rubber off the spool, as both ends are just push on and screw tight.... for water and gas.
    Suggestions?
    Thanks

    PS.... 25' torch leads
    The W-250 is the current equiv to your WP-20/ 20M Diamondback

    I would replace the whole unit and be done with it... torch ... hoses and all

    quick disconnects are only useful if you are trading torches frequently...... otherwie save your money
