Default Custom GTAW...

This will be a quicky.

Like anything I do , I'm modding.I'm in the process of putting together a fully custom TIG torch.

I got the torch body today.I'll be flushing out the body parts tomorrow probably , but that might take a couple weeks because of special orders..I'm designing this torch for 'thin-metal' stainless steel/aluminum welding.

Pics tomorrow.
