    Thanks for the suggestion but the points are too far gone. The silver coating is gone and the brass in the points are arcing together.

    the MM200 used an off the shelf 3ph motor starter... match the specs printed on your old one and buy one on ebay... probably $50 range
    (manufacturers part number usually printed on the body...)

    it may just need to be cleaned with contact cleaner or have points replaced..

Problem is, the wire stays hot when I let off the trigger because the contactor is sticking. It will release if I tap on the points cover. I looked at the Miller replacement contactor and am not liking the price from my local supplier ($270+tax). Does anyone have a number for an aftermarket or are the points links replaceable? Thanks in advance.
