I don't know.. but I loaned my plasma cutter out, in the lil consumables box.. there was a half dozen tips.. now... Yesterday it came back home.. there are none.
Ahh.. the trusting-knowing soul. (Otherwise known as sucker born last week).. This time it's myself.
I'm in the market for some too, and fewer friends. If you call them friends.

What brand and model of plasma cutter do you have?
You mentioned Italian. One of the local retailers carries DECA which is Italian and might be a place to help with the Identification.

It's a Clarke plasma king 40
I usually get them from here :-
look at the prices ...and you'll know why I'm searching elsewhere .
I cant ID them with the part numbers they list
I bet they are common to a lot of plasma cutters and have simple names like eg... A32 or T24 tips nozzles etc

I looked at your link.
They look like Tafimet (http://www.trafimet.com/Ing/Index-plasma.html) brand stuff. These guys seem to have a better mouse trap and a number of people use their torch. Cebora, Hypertherm, Binzel, Saf, WTC, Whitney, Panasonic, Komatsu, Messer-Griesheim, L-Tec, Union Carbide, Thermal Dynamics Powerfist, Harborfreight and others.

THEY Also have matching torches on ebay, that use the cheap tips..
NOW questions.. if you went with a higher current torch would the tips last longer?
Next question... my torch is wired into the machine, a Miller blue 40 amp.. forget the model at the moment, but.. the chinese version has only two connections.. what the heck?? does the power go out the gas connection? I have two connections in my miller for just the trigger to the internal start board.
Yeah, I'm cheap.. so? Ohh.. and my torch on the miller has been repaired so many times, the lil microswitch inside has been disabled.. some home machined parts inside now from being dropped quite a few times. About once a month the miller needs opened up and the boards blowed off.. otherwise it acts strange.
A new miller torch from the welding supply I deal with is four hundred dollars. Are they totally insane?

All HF torches are basically the same, they require a pilot arc in the machine and induce HF/HV voltage into the torch via a large current inductor.
An on/off switch in the torch handle initiates the HF spark, and when unit senses current flow the HF arc is turned off and the DC LV high current arc circuit is started.
Torches come in 2/5/7 pin for on/off & a brass gas nut that also serves as the arc current wire.
This adapter would help. We also have much nicer torches including a panasonic one. Check our website.
PlasmaDyn is an engineering company - we are currently designing our OWN plasma cutters that will be made in America - good bye chinese....
If you have any tech questions, please let us know.
His reply was.. Okay.. I am interested now.. will shop more later.
PlasmaDyn Torches can be adapted to virtually any plasma cutting machine with the addition of a brass male 5/8" gas connector & 2 pin male plug adapter.
PlasmaDyn offers the brass adapter for $12.99 and the 2 pin plug for $4.99, or both as a kit for $14.99. This kit allows any common ESAB style torch to be used and allows owners of older Miller, Hyperthem, Thermal Dynamics, L-Tec and others to use common, inexpensive torches and consumables.
PlasmaDyn machines use common Dinse quick disconnect connectors (outside) as well as 5/8" thread connector gas & 2 pin (On/Off) & 3 pin (Remote Current Control)
Well ain't that handy???? fixed my lil cheapskate boat right up.. I will email a thank you to him..

Geez, how can any one stand workin with those purdy nails!:eek:
03-02-2009, 09:05 AM
Usually purty nails are a sign there is no work going on.
When I want mine clean, I wash dishes.. Mine has never been that long or that manicured thou. Something missing from a diet will cause them to be brittle.
I snatched a few fingernails off as a tattoo artist.. tattoo underneath it, when the nail growed back over it, it had a lil picture frame.
My personal fingernails, when the nail was gone ain't nobody touching it. Tattooing through a fingernail? well it grows off the end.. not permenant. aThe soles of the feet and palms of the hand are the same way.. dissapear.. shed skin too fast to stay.
