The CK180 TIG torch is designed for intricate and hard-to-reach TIG welding applications. Commonly used for automotive and motorcycle cylinder heads, headers, merge collectors and more. The 180 series is available in two water-cooled models: CK180 (rigid) and CK180V (with gas valve). The CK180 is a front-loading torch (no back cap), that has a "flat top" and uses compact front end parts, for easy access to tight places. The torch body is a well-balanced, feather-weight design with an insulating gasket that prevents high-frequency arcing in tight welding applications, and minimizes shield gas leakage.
