    The AC balance settings on the ARCMASTER are BACKWARDS...

    on a Sync or Dynasty a balance setting of 70 means 70% Electrode Negative
    But on the Arcmaster it means 70% Positive...

    See "WAVE BALANCE" on page #27

      I guess we did I just got a chance to weld some aluminum today . Got it all figured out if some one else need some quick set up setting I wrote some down after hrs of figuring out the parameters. I like being able to fiddle with all the setting but its also a chore I haven't set up a dedicated station for this welder so I only pull it out when I have some aluminum tig to do.
