    i might be wronge but i think i would have control to turn up or turn down amperage with the foot pedal hooked to it and also the curent control on the box to get it close to what i need to weld. at work we have a tig torch that we scratch start with it's ok for a emergency but this box should give me control of the amperage am i right?

      Sorry.... think you are SOL on controlling current on a Miller Bobcat with that Lincoln box ...
      Can see nothing in the parts list that will actually control the current..

      no magamp... no chopper assy...

      reading the owners manual posted earlier will help you grasp the reality of it..

      Besides... the Bobcat is NOT equipped with the 14pin remote connector...

      you may have had a chance of cobbling it with a Miller Trailblazer.... but really difficult with the Bobcat..
      Many of the Lincoln products require a machine specific "Remote Kit" in order to function

          Sorry....

          figured you would like to know before you threw a bunch of money at it...

          still doable but a lot more involved than might be fun...

          the Bobcat was just not equipped with remote capability...

          now a Trailblazer would get you a lot closer....
