I am looking to buy a tig torch for my 200A tig welder. I can buy a air cooled 150 A tig torch like ebay item 7547092579 (WT-17V-25R TIG WELDING TORCH & PARTS), or buy a water cooled torch, water cooler etc.
My tig welder does have some connectors for incoming and outgoing water. I suppose that I am supposed to plug my water cooler "in line" with these connectors.
Comparing them:150 A: air cooled torch, low cost, but less capacity (amps) than my welder produces.
200A water cooled torches: more capacity, higher cost, need to buy a water cooler. Big bucks.
So, my question is, as a amateur welder, would I be limiting myself with 150A so much that a 150 A torch is much worse than a 200A water cooled? It seems unlikely, but I wanted to check.i
