TIG Accessories & Consumables (Torch Parts):

Your TIG gun (torch) can have various parts fitted, enabling it to weld a variety of materials and sized items.

Some parts are literally consumables, they get eaten up during the welding process. Other parts are consumables, but they last a lot longer and only get replaced when worn. These parts are often interchangeable, dependant on what you’re welding.
