    as above my new to be telwin welder works great on gasless but tryed it today on gas and theres no gas at the nossle took the torch apart and looks to be the white plastic trigger where the gas and wire liner attach to ive cut the plastic tube a little shorter re attched but still leaking

    the air seams to be coming from the side of the plastic

    can i get a replacment plastic bit or is it a new torch ?

    If its similar to cebora type the white bit comes apart, inside is a plunger and spring, the leak is possibly caused by rubber sealing O ring on the plunger.

    nice :thumbup: ive never bothered with it as been looking for a cheap torch as i got a clark for gas that after a service (crossing fingers)seams to be working very welll for the last months

    its been set up as a gassless welder with flux core in it for a few of those quick not great looking jobs just need sticking together

    but will put it back on my list for to do list it will be low down but would be nice to see it working nice just in case mine went wrong and cant get working again

    thanks :clapping:

    Update been a while but as not used much was not on the top of the list jobs had an hour this morning and tripped over the cosmio welder and thought if I can sort the telwin out the cosmio can go on Facebook 20200421_084918.jpg 20200421_093356.jpg there was a grease in there but not around the seals do removed it from the plastics and put it round the seals and it seams to be holding air at a low pressure but when I put the pressure up I leaks again

    Theres nit much grease there is this what I need to clean up and grease it again
