try a copper

on thin stuff I use a piece of copper for a back up Either a piece of 1/4 in flat bar stock or hammer down a piece of copper pipe and shape it as needed ...It will absorbe excess heat and minimize burn thru

It has gone out of production and unless there is something new out there I don't know of any other wire that will even come close to doing what the Twenty Gauge would do, it's a shame that something as good as this has to disappear just as it is finally starting to catch on.


Apparently it is going to be available again! I just received this reply to an E-mail I sent to marketing at Lincoln Electric who now owns JW Harris, or at least the wire electrode division, and it sounds like they now have someone who intends to get the word out about Twenty Gauge.

Thank you for taking the time to contact us and bringing to our attention
your concerns. I'm glad to hear that our Twenty Gauge is such a well
received item, but not so glad to hear of the difficulties you, and others,
are having in finding distributors that carry it. As a Harris district
sales manager, it is my responsibility to educate the distributors and help
them promote our products, and obviously I have dropped the ball with
Twenty Gauge. As I am always looking for different products to focus on, be
assured that Twenty Gauge will be one that gets a good amount of attention
with all of my distributors.

Going forward, here is our webpage featuring Twenty Gauge:

Please note the three part numbers: TGE2, TGE3SP, and TGE5. If you give
these part numbers to any Harris distributor, they can contact us and have
the wire ordered for you.

Again, thank you for taking the time to contact us. I apologize for the
difficulty in finding our products, and I assure you that our distributors
will get the training and support they need to promote Twenty Gauge to its
full potential.

Timothy Reading
District Sales Manager
The Harris Products Group
