      Thanks, but more to the point...

      Let's say I had a Millermatic 180 that provides an output of 135 amps at 22.5 volts DC with a 30% duty cycle. Would that work?

        no as that is a cv....ie constant voltage. As you need cc..ie constant current to tig weld.

          Going to guess and say that you have zero clue on what a HF box is for, maybe do just a little research.

              Very astute observation

              You are the quite clever observer! I got this equipment from a friend who does no welding at all and he thought it was a TIG welder. It took only a brief read of the manual to determine what it is for (starting the arc using high freq) but alas the manual only references connecting to "the welding power source" which left me disappointed in the completeness of the manual. I looked through the Welding Discussions here without much additional enlightenment. Thus asking via this forum seemed to be a good way of doing the needed research.

              Thanks for your comment as I am sure it must be helpful in some way.
              The constant current versus constant voltage comment from another member was very helpful though.

                  I told you what power sources the unit was ment for, then you came out with how to use it with your CV mig.... What am I supposed to think?
