Talking Leather torch wraps

OK, so like I've never used these on my torches, but with a new MM210 showing up tomorrow and the Cutmaster38 I got 2 weeks ago, I think I'd finally like to get some.

Are they worth it, or merely a scam? If worth it, anyone have any favorites they want to give me a link to?

I used one on my 25' TIG lead, but I hve nothing on my MIG leads. I am about to order a plasma of some sort, (fingers crossed) and I hadn't even thought of that one yet...

I'll be watching the thread to see what others say.

By the way, how well do you like the Cutmaster?

I am really kicking around whether to get the Cutmaster or the Sprectrum.

Sorry to rob your thread....

I think the leather wraps on plasma lines and tig torches are a good idea if you use them ALOT or use them in an environment where they would get damaged easily. My plasma cutter already has some kind of flexible rubber sheath that is encasing the air and power lines so there's no real desire for me to protect it more since I'm not in a production environment.

Aaron, the Cutmaster 38 is the T/A 185 of it's class. Seriously, I really like it a lot. Cuts extremely clean, and is not over rated at all. It fits into my stash of the MM210, T/A 185 and Cutmaster 38 fairly well. You will not be disapointed.

My Miller MM200 is over 20 years old, still original gun and cable, and other than a few burn marks, is in good shape.
The Plasma is 15 years old, and came with a fabric covering that has stood up well to the beating it takes.
For aTIG machine, you want something that will protect the hoses, especially on a water cooled torch. Those damn hoses turn into sprayers real quick when you make a momentary stupid mistake.
