    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....

    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

    Bobcat will be a very poor tig machine on thinner material, there will be no voltage/amp control, basically you will be a fixed amp. It will be difficult to begin the arc as it will be either to cold, or to hot, as when i tig aluminum i start hot then back off the pedal as the piece heats up...kinda a waste of money to use a bobcat as a tig machine.....

    good idea meltedmetal i would rather stay blue although i have two small lincoln migs the majority of my stuff is blue.
    If u could byy them for under 200, then yes some money could be made, but...hf251 rarely sell for more then 500...so doubt someone is going to pay more than that...Also how many newer welders come with ac where this could be used for tig?

    The Lincoln Tig module looks to be more or less the Lincoln equivalent of the Miller HF 251D. You might want to check e-bay to see what they both are going for before you part with your cash. If you click "more refinements" then "show only" then "completed listings" you can sometimes see what someone else was actually prepared to pay or establish a range. Just now there is one used for $950 and one for bids with 1 bid of $200 that has not met the reserve.

    Haha. Same for me H80N. Buy high & sell low has been the way of life, not by choice just seems to work out that way.
    So like you, I buy & use, just works better for me that way I can make money with it.

    As far as making money buying and selling...

    I have always been a great buyer.. but could not sell to save my life...

    So I just buy stuff that I can actually use..

    Hope you do better...
