I have never heard of such a thing. I have been TIG welding for 20 years, and teaching TIG welding for 6.5 years.

If you find such a thing let me know.

mentions clear glass nozzles, but unfortunately no photos. I have seen a photo of a clear one somewhere, I'll keep looking.

I can tell you that if there is a clear glass nozzle it is :

  1. Pyrex
  2. Crystal quality 'glass'.

Not just any glass can stand up to the temp and nominal bumps without shattering.

Wonder if someone did Sapphire ? :-)

Anealing temp for pyrex is 1050 deg F. You would probably have to have one made out of quartz or a clear ceramic.

The stuff is called Ferroceram and is used for fireplace door windows.

That's it! - Have some on my Wood Stove. Clear and tough stuff. I was told it was tougher than pyrex for fires. I think Pyrex can take ramp up and ramp down, not hot jerk up and down.

Tig Depot sells clear nozzles kits made from pyrex tube. The nozzle does not screw on to the gas lens like the type I have seen before.

Weldcraft makes a TIG torch MT-125 that uses quartz & glass nozzles. It's Weldcraft's 125amp water cooled micro TIG welding torch.

See page #12, MT-125.
