This air cooled 150 amp torch came with a used machine I just picked up that has a complete water cooled torch in good condition.
I may never need an air cooled torch, but if its usable I want to add the needed parts.

No back cap or collet. I thought it would be hard, but possible to find replacement consumables.
But no luck. OKI has been bought by another company.
Not sure if the K-G is a model number
My local supply house chuckled when they saw it.

Anyone using this torch, and/or know where to get parts?

What did you figure out?
I just ebayed a 500 amp water cooled tig torch, same brand.
Damndest thing I ever saw. Makes no sense at all.
Must be a completely different tungsten arrangement..
Thanks,
Mark

Never found any info
Its still sitting on the welding tool box, now covered in a few years worth of dust
It will probably hit the recycle bin next spring cleanup

the 10' of #4 with an eyelet will be kept for a spare
The gas line I may repurpose into a back purge for ss as the fitting to connect to a regulator is still in decent condition
remainder of torch is going to the scrap pile
