Hello all, I really like my Lincoln Precision TIG 185 and (as a beginner) I have been able to progressively improve my skills. I found Stainless to be very forgiving and I seemed to pickup that skill pretty quick. TIGing Aluminum was quite a bit tougher, but after a week of welding, I'm now able to start seeing the 'stack o dimes' in my welds.
I've been researching parts and have not been able to identify what replacement parts fit my TIG torch. According to Lincoln, I have the PTA-17 Pro-Torch TIG Torch". I've seen lots nozzles (of various sizes), but have no idea if they will fit mine. I've searched Lincoln, but have not been able to figure out what fits mine (size, type, etc).
Can anyone tell me what 'size', or 'type' nozzle I should be looking for? Armed with that information I'll go searching for a replacement nozzle. Are nozzles pretty standard? Or is this TIG torch interchangeable with some other brand? I broke my nozzle today, so that's an immediate concern. I'm sure I'll need other TIG torch parts pretty soon too.
This is all new to me, but I'm picking it up pretty fast.
