  • Hi folks...water cooled torch question

    New here and a hobby welder for a while. I'm a Blue guy and am looking to upgrade the torch for my Dynasty 200DX to water cooled. I only want Miller components, obviously a cooler, a minimum 200amp torch and a 25' work lead. Does anyone know the choices and or options? I searched the Miller site and couldn't figure it out. The local Miller rep isn't in my area often enough or at convienent times so maybe you folks can help me out. Thanks in advance, P

    ITW bought weldcraft, so they're now "miller" torches (they also made the diamondback line for miller - since miller has never made their own tig torches in-house IIRC). Lots of folks like the CK torches as well, but they're not "miller".

    I'm curious why you limit yourself with that mentality though?

    Tweeco and Binzel make better mig guns than miller. Aren't you interested in getting the better gear vs some kind of ridiculous brand loyalty?

        I hear you

        But it's a TIG torch and I usually just prefer to keep all of my stuff the same. I'm a hobby welder and don't know if I could tell the difference between a good one and a better one but I'm open to suggestions if the difference is significant. So, I'll be open to anything anyone has to offer. The only requirements then are water cooled, 200 amp minimum and a 25' lead.

          I think the best, most usefull welding torch is

          The weldcraft WP-20. It's small, easy to hold and manipulate. Now that weldcraft is under the ITW banner, it's just like having a miller torch. Just but a Blue cable protector over the hoses and no one will know the difference.

              When you click on a product in the Miller website, on the left side it says product information, click on accessories.

                Hey

                Great, I wonder why I couldn't find that, now at least I see the coolers and I'll look into that torch you suggest. Thanks guys, I appreciate it. Superflex cables huh........sounds nice.

                    I like the CK 200 flex head with superflex cables.
