Thanks Dave. I've bought them from Omega for years. (Significantly cheaper than buying from profiler manufacturers.) I was just wondering if others had found another source.

We get them from Omega and have been for the past 20 years. Tried "cheaper" TC's a few years ago from an Asian supplier and lets just say I learned my lesson. They started to short after about 5 cycles and were tossed. Stick with Omega!

We're a high mix low/medium volume manufacturer. We are required to keep profile boards on hand with TC's still attached. Which led us to make our own in house. We use the welder below.. Very easy and much more affordable.
