    Hi Folks,
    My second hand SIP Handymig came with a batch of contact tips that have threads that do not match the welder. The one contact tip in it appears to have 10-32 threads and all the tips that came with it and that I can find iat the welding suppliers around here have larger threads that match a 1.0 metric thread gage.

    What's the story here? Are SIP tips smaller than all of the other brands? Or might mine have a replacement handle and neck? Is there a source for these smaller 10-32 threaded tips? BTW the contact tip ID I need is .030 or .8 MM.

    As far as I'm aware they're just standard 'hobby' size tips with an M5 thread, the ones you have are M6 thread.
    That's what they would be here anyway, I would have thought they'd be the same over there.

    I believe that sip may have used 2 sizes of tips, they would be metric maybe m5 and m6.
    What you are describing would be about an m5X0.8.
