So I talked to the customer support people for Miller torches, a nice guy in the service department said if I sent him a photo of my unidentified torch and cutting head he would let me know what it was so I could get the right mixer and tips for welding. I told him it was probably old since I got it when my uncle passed away... he assured me they make parts for even the obsolete stuff.
I sauntered out to the shed and took said photos, sent them to him, and got a quick answer back. "We don't make that model anymore, it's been obsolete for at least 20 years".
I emailed him back to see if he could at least tell me the model # so I could look for NOS and used stuff maybe... he never answered me. *sigh*
My yahoo photos has some pics of the handle and cutting attachment. There are NO model #'s, letters, numbers, or symbols of ANY kind on the thing, except where you screw on the hose and one side says "gas" and the other side says "Ox". Some pics are posted at:Or In that pic of the handle I have the end covered with some masking tape (to keep dirt and crap out) so it doesn't show the threads, I can take another pic if needed.
Also, today when trying to cut some stuff I got a flame out of the junction between the silver tube and the brass head of the cutting attachment. I shut it off smartly and looked at it, it seems the joint is failing there, how easy is this to repair? I think this is just silver soldered isn't it?
Thanks for any help! Mike in Warrensburg
