    mainly aimed at @matt1978 but does anyone know if there is a parts list/diagram for the Fr32 plastic pedal. My potentiometer has gone stiff and is squeaking like mad. I've tried contact cleaner with now joy it's come back with a vengence. Think my only option is to replace. It looks like a normal 10k pot but has 10K414M Piher stamped on it.

    I'd like to keep it all OEM rich. I've got other pots but with different pin layout.

    I've got it working with a squirt of PTFE lubricant but that's probably not going to do it any favours in the long run.

    Worth spending the money to keep the pedal all original.

    Best place to get those Tuchel plugs? I see Parweld sell them, but i think thats whats on my other torch and its pretty floppy compared to the lorch item.

    Those 5 pin touchel plugs are expensive, I have two machines that use them, I made up a short fly lead and put a quality audio female socket on the end, Then the audio male plugs on any tig torches, I think the plugs I used were called XLR plugs, top quality and cheap as chips.

    I think the parweld ones are £15. Not too bad. You want to try buying an 14 pin Mil-Spec amphenol.

    I'd like to get something with similar quality to the Lorch Ones. I'll look tomorrow to see if they are branded.

    9 pin fronius plug if you fancy a pricy one.

    Like I said brad. Ewm and lorch use the exact same plug. They are around the £30 mark iirc. Jim keeps em on the shelf. Give him a shout.

    I've had a few of the EWM style ones and the best quality off the shelf was SWP's. Parweld one is a bit cheap feeling.
