    I don't know but I buy cheap air cooled torch heads from welding city and they work pretty good. At the price I pay they are disposable.

      If used within their amp range and duty cycle I'm sure they would be. Many TIG welders like the CK brand and you won't find a much better torch, but then your skill level (or anyone's) is the most important component to a successful weld.

          That’s the house brand for praxair I believe. Probably no better worse than most out there.

            I think they are also the house brand for airgas as well. I have not used those tig torches but I have used some of the Radnor smaw electrodes. Some were good, some were okay, and some, not so much.

              I used them for years from Airgas, They are about 1/3 the price on ebay. Most vendors sell the same china torch with their name on it...Bob

                That’s it, you guys are right, it’s Airgas, not Praxair. It was one of those “air” somethings. Either way, Chinese parts.

                  One of my machines (bought used) had a Radnor TIG torch on it....seemed fine, but wasn't any better than the inexpensive torches I've bought on eBay. There's one company, Mundaka Technologies, that I've bought several torches from now...they sell on eBay. The torch and braided lines feel and work just like the Weldcraft that came on my Syncrowave 250DX. I'm sure the Weldcraft is a bit better, but it costs several times more and I consider torches to be an expendable item...once they get beat up just buy a new one (actually, I keep a new spare on hand since they're not expensive).

                    Is that why my welds don't get any better no matter how much I spend on tools?

                      Weird, I thought that I was the only one to experience that phenomenon

                        It’s like my golf game, I was sure those expensive clubs would make my game better, but they must not be calibrated correctly because I lose just as many balls as before.

                          Radnor products are manufactured by name brand companies. Tweco, Harris etc. All the wire with Radnor on it is made by Lincoln, etc. It's just Airgas brand. Just the walmart of welding supplies.

                            but at least now you lose them in style
