    Default Cooler alternative

    Purchased a water cooled torch, not that I'll use it that much with the PP 205 but I really like how small the WP-20F is. Came up with my version of the tap water system that works great. Pics are of the welder connections, the shop sink water source, backyard drain and I threw in one of my tig finger holder. Someday maybe a real cooler but this is just fine for now.

    If nothing else you get a little heat in the pool too. Slick.

    Are you running argon through the water trap/pressure regulator on back of the machine ?.. It's looks that way in the pic. Argon should go from your flowmeter directly into the machine.

    I see you have a GM weather pack connector at the front of the machine looks like it is going to the control plug what is that for? Nice work on the plumbing.

ID:	11728Kempy, I had some of these 2 pin weatherpac connectors and no 7 pin plugs for some new torches. I did the cheap way out for the new ones. It actually works just fine.
