Sources for torch head consumables

We use a 'type 17' torch head, so you need consumables that fit that head. Local welding shops can provide if you tell them what type of torch head we are using. In addition you can purchase online. Here are a few sources

Pyrex (clear cup) kits and parts for type 17 torch
Standard alumina nozzles and collet bodies
Back cap

Malcom's post on TALK about consumables/electrodes is here.

Combo Kit on Amazon Smile with caps, shields, collet bodies and collets, et al - does not include tungsten consumables or filler rod
