  • 700 Dynasty pt. II

    LWS called today and told me my cooler was in along with my east-west thumb controller and 25 ft extension and all the twist locks.
    The manager (if I called him "my buddy" I'll catch heck tommorrow) came down and helped me install the Coolmate 3.5. It went pretty smoothly. Just remove the lid off of the cooler and set the welder on top of it and then put the bolts back in the same exact spot.
    After he left I started searching WAY harder for a 4/4 SO cord to run this thing off of. That is a little tuff to find in this part of the country but I located one in a neighboring town. I had to pay $4.47 a ft for it and purchased all they had which was supposed to be 34 ft. Which he assured me it was. But by the time I got it home it had shrunk to 31 1/2 feet!!

    So I put the wires where the manual showed and tied back the red wire 'cause when you read the specs on this thing you just know 3 phase in its future.
    Attn. sparkies: I hope I am not doing something here to burn the shop down...I'm just getting into posting pics lately and so I'm kinda leaving myself open for criticism

        So there it is Coolmate 3.5 installed along with power cord!!




        Then I drug it to the other end of the shop and plugged it in. This is exactly how it was set already.




        And then there are these crazy little EXPENSIVE suckers that as far as I know only a 700 uses. If it was not for these I would have already been playing with machine at low amps with my 200 Dynasty's air cooled torch...oh well.

          It would have to be on DC cause it only does around 575 amps on AC. But it is supposed to do like 750 on DC stick if everything is set up to do all this correctly. I am not qualified to run any of those amperages on any of those processes tho. I didn't order a torch for that either. I only ordered a 18 which is for 300 amps. It should suit me fine. If need be I can go bigger. This one is bulky enuff. Don't need a claw hammer
          I am afraid I don't possess enuff safety equipment either for that matter. I think you might need a silver suit

                  Red Wire

                  FusionKing,

                  I would change how you have the red wire in the machine. You want to hook it up to the switch and tape back the one on the other end. If someone unknowingly hooked up the red wire on the plug end to say 460 then you would have that 460 just dangling inside your machine. If this came into contact to chassis you would have some problems or if it came into contact with any other parts in the machine it could get expensive. If you have it hooked to the switch then power goes to the correct place.

                  Hope this helps and congrats on the 700 when it comes to Tig machines it’s the Cadillac or Hummer or maybe even the Sherman tank of welders

                    Hey FK,

                    Sitting here drooling. Nice machine.

                    I do have one suggestion, since we seem to do somewhat similar work (marine).

                    Check out Weld-Tec's WT-20H torch. It's about the same size as a WP-20, but rated for 300A and will take up to a 5/32 tungsten.

                    I have the 300A WP-18 but find it to be too large for some of the work I do and like the 20H much better. IOC either has or can get all the parts for that torch. Over the last year or so I've actually had better luck with the Weld-Tec torches than I have with the Weldcraft's. Not sure if Weldcraft changed something in their manufacturing process.

                    Weld-Tec's new cable cover is pretty slick too. Don't have the part number handy, but it's shown on their website.

                    Hope the new "BEAST" makes you lots of money.

                    PS. Just finished building a rack setup for a fire suppression system on a trawler we have in for repairs. Used 1/4"x2"x2" alum angle for the framework. An inverter with adjustable HZ sure would have been nice for the inside corners (less than 90 deg). Reflected heat back with the Sync was a bear to deal with.

                      Sundown I looked at so many different combo's both mine and my friend at the LWS's eyes were popping out.
                      Then I was realizing just how much money I was spending here!!!
                      The cooler is substantially higher than a stand alone one so I was feeling the pinch. I finally decided in a weak moment on a Radner 18 flex model and a 50 ft rubber hose/cable combo and it saved me a ton.
                      I have been extremely loyal to my LWS. The manager, my driver and the secretary/counter person all treat me like I was family and if I bought anything online it would make me feel worse than it would them I am sure.
                      They even read what we are posting here as well
                      If all the LWS's out there gave a crap even half as much as these guys internet sales would not even exist!!

                      Brian...Thank you so very much for that suggestion...that was the very reason why I posted those pics. it will be done before I go home tonite
                      I assume you mean to unhook the factory wires on the other side of the switch and tape them up and cable tie it back as well.
                      Man the internet is great!!

                        FK I think you misinterpeted what Brian said, hook the red wire up to the switch even through your not currently gonna use it and on the plug end loop it back and tape it off. Hope this helps.

                          LWS is correct. Go ahead and leave all the wires inside the machine hooked up. When you run single phase you just leave the red wire out of the plug.

                            Oh my gosh...I can't believe I didn't think about that!
                            Good thing I DIDN"T get around to doing it WRONG after all
                            I'll fix it sometime before I use it tho.
                            Thanks LWSGUY and also once again Brian.

                              FK, one of my students in my night class brought me some scrap that someone welded together. looked like from "scrap" to "[email protected]", but there are 4 pieces I'm going to salvage and send to you, so it's 1/2" thick 2-1/2"x 4" aluminum pieces....should be fun to play with/test your machine on.....
