Welding Tools - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Lots of torches are fairly universal and you are likely to find it cheaper to replace only the parts needed if you can find them - manufacturers tend to prefer to sell the torch (or gun) complete with the hose, cables and sheath and they are expensive though considerable savings can be made dealing with factors or independent supplier/repairers.

Most professional mig welders over here use the euro torch and when a welder doesn't have one and the torch is ready for replacing it is a worthwhile modification, especially if the necessary parts can be sourced secondhand or salvaged.
The euro torch just plugs into the machine and once the machine has been modified there are plenty of usable secondhand ones about that can be had for a song.

If you aren't conversant with the euro torch, try a search...

The above reply is very good. If the contactor is buzzing, it will need to be blown out with high pressure air. When I was a welding repair shop manager, we washed every machine out with a pressure washer and then we blew the machine out with high pressure air. When dealing with high electronic machine, you have to avoid getting the electronics wet and high pressure air can damage circuits and wiring. Contractors are easily taken apart and cleaned. WARNING: Any work done on the inside of the machine should only be done with the machine unplugged or locked out. Good luck.
