TIG Torch Hand Control

Using a TIG torch hand control will allow you the ability to easily control your welding while having the ability to adjust your TIG welder.  The hand control wraps right around the TIG torch itself and allows you to control the welding process without having to use a foot torch control.

The hand control allows you to turn the TIG torch on and off all with just one hand.  The same hand you are holding your TIG torch.  This can be very beneficial where you have to work in a confined place where you cannot have access to foot control to turn your welding machine on and off while you are welding.

Like the foot control, the hand control allows you to adjust the amount of ampage that you are welding with.  The control mechanism is either rotatory or linear to increase or decrease the total ampage.

TIG Torch Parts

Working with a comfortable TIG torch is very important.  You need a TIG torch that fits comfortably in your hands.  The contours of the handle and your hands ability to grip the torch will help ensure that you produce precise and exception work.

The overall size of the TIG torch and the TIG torch parts that you use will affect and enable you to get access to tight spaces.  Working with a flexible head and parts will make it easier to get into small spaces to weld.

One of the most important TIG torch parts that you will require is a torch that gives you control of the gas so that you can quickly control the level of the shielding gas flow coming out of the TIG torch.  Being able to control the gas flow will help you do your job better.

Working with a non-slip grip will also allow you to control your torch better and is a welding part that is very important to have in your equipment box.
