How do I assemble my TIG torch?
Arranging the component parts of your TIG torch is straightforward. The diagram below will show the correct order of assembly to enable the torch to be set up correctly.

The torch consists of a number of elements. The tungsten electrode needs to be secured in the torch. This is inserted into the main body and secured by a screw type back cap.

At the front of the torch a small white heat shiled fits over the front of the torch body. Over the tungsten a collet must be fitted followed by a collet body that screws into the main body of the torch. The final part to be assembled is the ceramic which also screws into the body of the torch head.
