  • New Tig torch

    Last week I posted a problem with my CK Flex Neck Tig torch leaking water.
    The flexible neck had finally given up.

    The solution was to get a new torch and I decided to buy a CK FlexLoc WP20 water cooled torch with 25 ft hose.
    I have had a chance to use it a few times and I have to say it is by far the best torch I have ever seen.

    I regularly weld end caps on 3 inch diameter by 6 inch long Dom tubing with the tubing mounted in my lathe with a 4 jaw chuck.
    The torch is mounted to the tool post using a fixture I made for the torch.
    With this FlexLoc I can easily move the head of the torch to any angle I need, and I just rotate the lathe chuck by hand and fusion weld the cap to the end of the tube.
    These items are rollers for the motorcycle roller starters I make and sell.

    After welding both end caps on the DOM tube, I drill a 5/8 inch hole through both ends.
    Then the DOM tubing is moved to my rotary table where I weld in the 5/8 inch diameter keyed shaft for an axle.
    The new FlexLoc torch again comes into play with the adjustable angle head. Great torch!
    If anyone is needing a new torch I urge you to check the CK FlexLoc.
    No connection with the product here, other than that of a satisfied owner.

        Great to have a happy ending.....

        But PLS keep a spare torch on the shelf to avoid future downtime.....
