Looking for tig torch to get into tight area

Postby Egon » Wed Jan 24, 2018 11:02 am

I'm looking for suggestions on a torch that can get into a tight area. I'm trying to weld overhead in a space of roughly 7/8 wide. Its an aluminum collar that's about an inch thick to 3/16 thick tube. I have a micro torch buts its too big plus it wouldn't be able to handle the amperage. This part was previously welded so I'm doing a repair. Any suggestions?

A long nosed #4/5 cup with a 1/8” tungsten would be my choice.
