    Dynasty 200 DX

    I was having a problem with the tungsten point degrading fast on low current steel welding, I tried the small tungsten .020, worked great but it was so fragile (handling).

    I went to .040 tungsten and set up the pulse for 26 amps 50 cycles 50 percent pulse 20 percent background and the tungsten point lasts very well at this setting. (average current 14 amps on my machine)

    It was difficult for me to set the precise output current so I adjust the main amps, then pedal down, welding arc struck, and watch the meter and see what the average amps are.

    These settings are for carbon steel .020 edge seams that need to look nice.

    This is easier for me as it eliminates the math.

    On aluminum I love the variable frequency ac and the adjustable cleaning cycle!! I dont do much aluminum but what I have done is wonderful with this machine!

    There may be a couple of things here that will help someone.......



    I for one am very interested in what can be learned from others experience on this thread as it is new to me!!!

    I suggested this type of idea for posting your settings and what worked well with what type of metal a couple months ago. Didn't think about the sticky idea. Anyway, no one seemed in favor of it at that time. I suggested it in the post about creating a book. I also do a lot of metal detecting and use a white detector and white has a form such as this and many, many posters post their settings so everyone doesn't have to reinvent the wheel. I think we are in charge of putting this information together. We are the users and we know what works and what doesn't work. If everyone would work together instead of tearing certain posts down, we could make a great sight even better.

    I know, "I'm new to tig" and sure don't know much that would help in the postings but sure would like to see what settings work and what don't. I have a dynasty 350 and it is amazing what a little change can make. It is all of those little things that make the big thing. Look forward to getting this working.

    Dave:
    No. All forums have "Sticky": capabilities. Look at the top of the Discussion page, there is a "Sticky" for "Posting Pictures on the Forums". There have been several threads asking advanced Dynasty questions and those answers should be available in a single, permanent thread. Read the thread I linked to at the bottom of the first post: "It started here"

    I am sure there would be a fair amount of inacurate information, but I am willing to sort thru that to be able to learn something......

    Weldor Two:
    I am all for a permanent thread that would be kept up to the top by a "STICKY" so that we would start to collect, compile and collate the info on "ADVANCED INVERTER TIG TECHNIQUES"....
    THANKS

    Weldor Three:
    Here's your chance gentlemen, make your own INVERTER TIG setup thread. If you have something you'd like to share, this would be a good place. Things like pulse settings, peak and background %, material and thickness, tungsten choices, upslope, downslope, HZ setting and its uses, AC balance choices, waveform preferences, DIG preferences, setup parameters, info, quirks, tricks..................... Please identify your specific welder when posting settings.

    FWIW: It started here:

    Craig: So are you suggesting the Forum be edited to add a 4th discussion, or eliminate one? I think this would have to be taken up with the Forum Administrator.

    THANK YOU... this is an opportunity for all of us to share and learn the intricacies of the advanced inverter machines, being the owner of both Dynasty 350tigrunner and 200DX... I look forward to watching this thread evolve....
    I vote YES!!!!!

    Thanks
