  • Eastwood TIG Welder #6/8 Gas Lens Components Kit
Eastwood TIG Welder #6/8 Gas Lens Components Kit is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Must be modified before use!!! As others have stated, these parts do not fit out of the box. I was hoping Eastwood had fixed the problem, but they have not. If you are ordering this kit, go and get yourself some plastic washers from the hardware store before it arrives. Had I done this, I would have been much less aggravated. If I had to do it again I would have spent the money for a better kit. Eastwood should know about this problem by now and either fix it or discontinue the kit. You will need a unibit to drill out the washer to fit. Here is a photo of the torch with the plastic washer installed. The off color washer is the one I added.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fitment issues While this gas Lens does everything it's supposed to do, I found the standard Collet's shipped with this kit do not fit. Both 1/16" and 3/32" collet's have issues. check your rear cap o-ring, it's supposed to recess into the torch body and prevent shielding gas loss. It does not seat properly, the o-ring does not seal on the torch body. To correct this I cut about 3/32" off the collet face then re-ground a bevel on the collet, works perfectly and seals. Eastwood shipped me a 2nd kit but the problem was not corrected, I had to fix this myself so four stars guys. Make the gas lens body 3/32" longer and that should allow standard collet's to fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from faulty parts As other people have reviewed, my rear cap o-ring did not go into the torch to prevent expensive argon from leaking out. The replacement kit was the same. They keep sending me the same defective parts. The easy way out is to order a US made collet holder. I got mine from McMaster Car and it works perfectly. Other solutions have been mentioned. I finally ordered a 60x1/4 3-flute counter sink and machined the collet interface deeper into the collet holder. I first took out some material with a 1/4 drill so the csk would not have to take out extra material. If you just use a drill, the collet will be hard to tighten because the drill angle is wrong, 118 vs 60. Use the csk and it will tighten perfectly. The 200dc welder itself seems to be well make and is great to get started into tig.

how do you tell if you have a wp 17 torch?

Asked by: AWD1
The easiest way to find out which torch you have will be looking at the side of your Torch body. The side of the torch body will almost always have some sort of number and manufacture name on it.

Eastwood TIG Welder #6/8 Gas Lens Components Kit

Item #20284 Brand: Eastwood

Improves shielding gas coverage by distributing shielding gas around the tungsten

In stock

Only $34.99


A gas lens improves shielding gas coverage by distributing shielding gas around the tungsten more efficiently with less turbulence than a conventional design. A gas lens also allows the tungsten to protrude further out of the torch for more maneuverability and better visibility of the area you are welding and of the arc itself.

This kit works on Eastwood and other brands of torches sizes 17, 18 and 26.

Kit includes the following: 1/16 inch Gas Lens, #6 Cups, 1/16 inch Collets, 3/32 inch Gas Lens, #8 Cups, 3/32 inch Collets and Insulator
