    Should look at the sw450 from speedway zep.
    That's a heavy duty torch and second to none imo.
    I've had a few tec torches now and I wouldnt bother with any other now The sw320 is the best wp20 torch going for what it can cope with from the box.

    standard fare is usualy weldcraft wp26 f watercooled, that will pretty much weld anything lets say max 270 amps if it gets hot its hit the tea shack your working too hard ,for light stuff gas cooled wp17 with stubby fittings
    HATE euro tig lke mig handles nothing nicer than taping the button where tis comfy always roll of tape in bag

    Me as well. Far too cumbersome and the switch is always too far up the handle. I've got by with them in the past but like you say a round handle with a removable switch is preferred. My go to torch is a weldtec ball joint now. Rated to 250amps it covers everything my 220 amp machine can throw at it.

    maybe its what the septics call single phase ,if ts 3 wires that will be 2 phases and an earth known as split phase used to be common, machine might have tappings though for 3 phase
