High-Purity Gas Solenoid Upgrade Kit for Miller® Diversion™ 165, 180 & Hobart® EZ-TIG 165i
The factory installed gas delivery system in your TIG welding machine consists of permeable rubber hoses, a low-cost plastic gas solenoid and spring type hose clamps. Located under the machine cover they are "out of sight -- out of mind" and have been proven to leak shield gas and draw moisture and atmosphere contamination into the TIG torch!
