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.
