This is what kills me - the shield there at the bottom (listed as the machine shield) doesn’t match what came on the torch (mine has the little lip https://store.langmuirsystems.com/collections/x45-torch-consumables/products/razorweld-x45-consumable-machine-shield?variant=29235218972714).
I’ve already pulled the trigger and ordered from Mechanic416, but calling my local Airgas, they have all the parts listed in the manual in stock.
I derped out last night trying to cut 3/16" for the first time and didn’t notice the bow in the steel until it was too late (hey! how about doing a test cut right? sigh). The shield and nozzle did their best, but alas, they’re fubar. The electrode looked ok, but meh, what’s another $30 (I ordered 5 nozzles, 5 electrodes, and one shield).
A new plasma cutter with parts stocked driving distance may be my next upgrade (I’m positive I’ll mess up again and don’t want to stock $300 in parts for a side gig - see: ToT’s W.I.F.E)…
