    Boats...that explains it! Nothing better to test your metal.

    Back to the buzz box

    Hey guys, thanks for the replies. I am just going to find another old buzz box to run that old twin carbon arc torch. Sometimes those old torches make short work out of seized up nuts and bolts that I constantly fight on boats.


    Thanks!

    Dynasty will likely see a dead short and either go poof, or turn itself off.

    Pick one....

    You're not pulling a lot of amps anyway, are you?

    Meanwhile, I like the irony, using the latest tech power supply to run a torch everybody else seems to have given up for dead (I use CA-T also, but not on an inverter welder . . . yet).

    Thanks for any input!

    Have a good one!

    Not likely. Some inverters are designed to accomodate the carbon arc's electrical appearance as a dead short, but the dynasty 200 to my knowledge is not one of them. The XMT series are capable, however.
