    Charlie,

    You have got it figured out. I wish my wife would learn to TIG, but she stays away form my welding work: business and hobby. If you need any specifics, let me know. If you or anyone else is interested in a very nice "like new" Maxstar200DX, let me know. Mine is gathering dust because I bought the Dynasty 200DX and it gets all the use. It is a year old and brand new other than a few arc hours on it.

    Our generator produces 30 amps at 120vac. We'd also be looking at using track power and "other peoples" generators which would be 120vac household style. We'd been taking small Millermatic 135's but the real need is tig. In the shop, my wife welds with a Lincoln Invertec but wants to bring it to the track (supposedly this will run on 120vac). I'm looking at the Maxstar 200 w/finger control for myself and other crew. Demand is greater for tig and because of the slowness of tig process we can see the need when repairing our own entry to use two tig machines. We'd like to find a way to use both these machines with 120vac household style with minimal fuss. This was not an issue before as our shop is 240vac and we only brought the small mig machines before. Thanks, Charlie

    Charlie,

    You need the green, white, and black wires for 120VAC operation. Green is ground, white is neutral, black is hot. The other wire(RED)just needs to be taped up. This is your 3rd leg for three phase operation. You can also pull off 120VAC from the 220 VAC output on your generator. This will give you all the amperage the generator is capable of producing. Let me know what your set up is: Generator capacity in output wattage, type of plugs-standard house type 120VAC, 220 VAC twist lock or 3 prong + ground range style. Get this info back and I and /or some of the other guys will gladly get you up and running. ALSO AS H80N HAS SAID MANY TIMES ON THIS FORUM, THE INFORMATION YOU ARE SEEKING IS PROBABLY COVERED IN THE OPERATORS MANUAL. If you do not yet have the machine, check this link: http://millerwelds.com/service/locate_om.php

    Simply click on download operators manual in the appropiate language and check it out. This is a free download as are most all Miller's manuals: safety, operators, etc.

    How to use 115v input on Maxstar 200

    I'm considering adding a Maxstar 200 to my shop (220v) but the real appeal is the idea of running it off 110v for trackside repairs. How do I adapt the plug to the 110v that my generator produces? TIA, Charlie.
