The other day when I was asking Joe Welder which TIG torches I should recommend when writing about the Nascar welders, and he could not stop talking about these two specific ones: the Modular and Micro TIG torches. I was confused. “So what’s so special about them?” I asked, naïve as I was. In response I received what was, quite possibly, the longest answer in the history of welding and now feel like I know just about as much as anyone could ever know about these two torches.
The Micro TIG torch? It’s just like what its name implies; it’s tiny. And that makes it perfect for any job where you need to get into a tight space. It’s even capable of welding inside of a 5/8” diameter pipe. It also has three interchangeable heads to choose from (45º, 90º and 180º angles) which make it almost impossible to find a job that this torch cannot do.
The Modular TIG torch? Joe Welder’s FAVORITE.
He calls it “the most versatile torch on the market”. Why? Because you can choose from so many different torch heads at different angles and different amperages that it’s just about mind-boggling. And you can also choose between air-cooled (WP-150) and water-cooled (WP-225) set-ups.
