  • Tig Torch Cooler Done

    The Tig torch cooler is finally done. I don’t know how good it works yet as I have been trying to order a CK20 for a few days now from Tig Depot but they don’t want to answer the phone during the times they say they are there to answer it. So I got it dropped shipped from the factory through someone else for the same price. It will hold 3 gallons of water (or coolant), and is 19” X 11” X 13 ½”. I had it running and it makes less noise than the fan in the Thermal Arc 185TSW it will be connected to so that won’t be a problem.

    Pictures: 1 – Testing & setting the pump to 50 psi. 2 – Basic stuff needed to build. 3 – Back cover and fan installed. 4 – Cooler shroud build to duct air to fan. 5 – Front panel installed and cooler installed over fan. 6 – Front plumbing layout. 7 – Rear plumbing layout. 8 – Wiring done. 9 – Rear view with wrapper installed. 10 – Front view of completed cooler.

      WOW George! Man you do nice work. I also built my water tank for my Gold Star, but seeing yours I think I’ll go out to the shop jerk it off the back of the machine, and run over it with the tractor. Twice now in the last twenty years I’ve blown up the water lines in my torch, because I forgot to turn on the pump

            Nice Job. One of the products I'm working on is an external water cooling device for computers. I also have been playing around with designs for a TIG and MIG cooler. I already have most of the components required to do a prototype - just no time yet.

              Parts?

              George,

              Can you give us a parts list? I would hate to pay big money for a cooler when I could make one, but don't know where to start.

                  Thanks for the comments, twice in 20 years, not a bad average if you ask me.

                    Not quite sure yet as I got carried away, I will have a parts list with cost up later.

                      Acually I stole the bottom from my wifes old (1970's) turkey roaster. The top is the bright metal one in the early pictures, it's heavy weight anizodized aluminum. I ended up using the bottom because it seems to be coated with something that seems to be industructable, plus it has built in handles.

                          Thanks kevin, I painted the wrapper with exoxy paint and got a few flaws, I need to wait a week before sanding them out so I can recoat it, it hate cold weather and will blame the flaws on that.

                            I got some stainless sheet and will have to rivet it on because I don't have a nifty brake yet. You can blame the paint on weather all you want. I had some engine enamel flake right off because it was too cold when I applied it. Me and the customer were less than thrilled - so I know your pain.
