Description

WEDGE TIG TORCH COLLETS FOR WP17, WP18 & WP26 TORCHES

A pack of 5 wedge collets for WP17, WP18 and WP26 Weldcraft® style TIG torches.  The wedge collet is a direct replacement for standard collets used with collet boy or gas lens setups.  However, the wedge collet provides a firmer grip of the TIG torch tungsten as well as lasting much longer.

Weldcraft® style torches are supplied by most welding machine manufacturers and are an industry standard in TIG welding.  Pick from the dropdown above for the size to match the tungstens being used.

 

The Collet is the part which holds the tungsten in the TIG torch, it’s here that current is transferred from the torch to the Tungsten.  It’s imperative that the Collet is the correct size for the tungsten being used so that the transfer of current is steady and hence provides a stable arc for welding.  The TIG Collet fits into the collet body, which in turn screws into the TIG torch.

 

Standard collets have a slit at the torch end which grips the tungsten when the back cap screws onto the back of the torch, forcing the into the body or gas lens.  Wedge collets work in a different way, the back cap forces the wedge end into the body or gas lens to “wedge” the collet in place.  The build of the collet, without the slit tends to be stronger and hence lasts longer.
