  • Description:
    Head for swivel head TIG welding torches. Available for 9 and 17 Series air-cooled swivel head TIG torches and 20 Series water-cooled swivel head TIG torches.

    Note regarding swivel head TIG torches: If you do not tighten your swivel head torch head enough, the loose connection can cause overheating and arcing. Arc damage and melting at the brass surfaces underneath the adjustment stem and swivel head, as well as those on the torch body, can occur. If those surfaces are compromised, the body, head, and adjustment stem will all need replacement. 

    Recommended tightening procedure:

    1. Position the torch head 90º counter-clockwise from the desired position.
    2. Tighten the adjustment stem by hand until snug.
    3. Turn the torch head* 90º clockwise until firmly tight.
    *Do not use the adjustment stem for the final tightening of the torch head to the torch body, only use the torch head to do so.
