    For a while now I've been looking for a very small tig torch. Approximately the size of a large pen. A week ago I found this one
    It was part of a (chinese) jewelers tig welding machine. It's connected with a clear gastube which has a copper stranded-wire inside.
    The vendor stated it was fabricated by binzel but I couldn't find anything like this on their site.
    The size is 20 mm diameter and 140 mm long.

    Has anybody an idea where I can buy this kinda torch ?

    Never seen anything quite like that one.

    Weldcraft and others make standard pencil style tig torches water and air cooled.

    Thanks Macona,
    I found some more by searching on the typename "sr9" it then turns out that there are other manufacturers that have penciltype torches to. I think I can choose one from an european seller.
    I can't figure out about the smallest one you mentioned how the tungsten is held. It seems that there is no room to slide it out when it is shortened by sharpening.
    That means you have to use short electrodes and get rid of them when they lost their tip.

    I'll let you know what I choose and how well it performs.
    grtz Arjan
