I have found wheel nozzle guide? Could this indeed be correct
TT&V
(roller) torch (cutting) guide
Explanation:
From your own suggestion I deduce that we're talking welding/cutting torches here. The first ref. shows what the Dutch word refers to. I think it's indeed unlikely that such a torch guide will be used for anything other than cutting so you might include cutting. On the other hand I'm not convinced that you need to inlcude roller in the term, unless you have to distinguish it frm other types of guides. In summary: I would go for torch cutting guide.
