  • Trying to find a TIG foot pedal for old Airco welder

    I have an old 300 amp Airco heliwelder that I got from my grandpa and right now it doesn't have a foot pedal so I have to scratch tig everything. Does anyone know where I could find one? The model# is 3a/ddr-225hpa/b-sd, serial# he817638. Any help would be appreciated.

    Try usaweld.com. Call then up and ask. They can usually build it if they don't stock it.

      Photo of your unit would help.
      Seems to be simlar to the Miller 330A/BP series.

      These welders used the old remotes with 2 separate 3 conductor cords.
      One cord was for the contactor and the other cord was for the current control.
      Each cord had a twist-lock type plug on the end.

      Bad news is that the remote used a 5 ohm, 150 watt ceramic rheostat for the current control.
      The newer aftermarket remotes are not compatible.

      Might find one on ebay.

        If it looks like mine (pic attached), it's actually a Miller 330 abp and uses the same foot control.

        I see them on ebay on occasion.
