  • Dynasty 200 DX - Piece Together Accessories

    Can some of you recommend everything i will need to begin using this Dynasty 200 DX? I was going to get the contractors kit but then read elsewhere here that I could piece together everything with better components. The only problem now is I have no idea what the **** to get. Can any of you give me your detailed descriptions of what I need? Thanks.

    Do not buy the contractor kit.....I did, and the only thing that I use from that kit is the foot pedal and the ground clamp. I have upgraded eveything. Went to a flow meter and a weldcraft torch. try this web site. Arc-zone.com Very good after market stuff.

      what stuff

      i think he is asking what he needs to get.
      i'm assuming he is new to TIG as i am and is looking for a list of stuff you would recomend
      IE; torch type and sizes, type of gage needed,type and maybe lingth of wire for work lead and clamp, somthing along thouse lines .

      i know this list will take some time to compile , but i'm also shoure that many will greatly benifit from it . many have said pice togather your own setup. but none have givin a list to compile

      i for 1 am about to get the dyn200 in nov. and as i have never TIG'ed befor i have conciderd the contractors kit just because i dont know what to get
      i also dont have $$$ to burn so saving a few bucks is always helpfull as well as i would rather have the better setup as i intend to keep this as my only TIG and dont see the need to ever replace it (thats a big part of why i chose a Miller longjevity and available parts 10years from now )

      perhaps someone (HAWK,ANDY, or any other qualified, experianced ) could start a thread that would tell us Nubee's what we need. i believe that that is the reason miller makes a contractor kit, not for the contracter but for us starters that want to take TIG up as a hobbie, for fun, or profit. for that i thank Miller. that being said there are beter ways to set it up and thouse of us with time to pice it togather would love some expert advice on what to get and maybee where to look for thease things, as we truly have no clue well i have no clue and dont mind admitting it


      thanks
      thanks for the help
      ......or..........
      hope i helped

          HAWK offerd to help

          HAWK offerd to help me put togather a set for my dyn200DX when i get it . perhaps he will make us all a list of what will work for a good allaround starter setup. i think 1 of the biggest ??? is what type and size torch we should get that will be a good all around setup. also what brand, and type of gages. well there are as i understand it also some other little stuf that i would hate to leave out get ready to put it togather only to find i'm missing a $.50 part and cant weld
          i have already priced the 2/0 wire for my work lead but dont know how long is good or if i can leave 1/2 the lead still roled up when welding or if i'll have to role it all out every time
          if i need to role it out every time i'll make up several sizes and atack what i need when i start a project.



          lots of ????
          thanks for the help

            The ARC-ZONE is the place to go..

            Their foot control is solid metal and very smooth. The cord to the welder connection is rather stiff, but not a big deal. They have a super flex cable that I got on my WP17. Don't even know there is a power cable-gas line attached!!!
            The ground clamp , stinger, and cables are welding supply items, or the Zone can hook you up.

            The foot control and torch with flex cable are the best.......................

            I also bought a Smith FLOW METER with full size body..Something about the Ball I like...over the dial

            I sent my contractors kit back.. Since the 200 comes with the adaptors, you good to go...

              How about some specific member recommendations? Like get this torch - Model # Blah, blah blah... That would be very helpful. I have the Dynasty 200 DX only. Now what should I order? Thanks.

                Have you gone to arc-zone.com?
                Give them a call.

                Half the fun of this is learning about the different options, and selecting the features you like.
                I got the WP-17 with the super flex cable.
                They only sell one foot control, Metal body, no plastic.
                The owner usally answers the phone. He knows his stuff. He can set you up, as he knows about the 200 DX

                  chopper,

                  Heavy duty foot pedal for remote current control: Miller 194 744

                  Torch: #17 150 air cooled in the super flex cable style like CK The bottom chart list the super flex cable models. You need the one piece power cord for the Dynasty. The standard cable is a little stiffer, but not quite as bouncy as the super flex. It's a personal preference. I really like the standard better. However, I have both types.

                  Torch adapter: Miller 194 720 for the #17 torch. This connects the torch to the Dynasty through a Dinse connector.

                  Dinse connector for the ground cable. A set of 2 should come with your machine. If not, Miller 042 533 is great for 1/0 cable. Make up a 12' length with the Dinse on one end and a ground clamp ( I like the brass clamps) like this Tweco

                  Torch accessories: CK can help with those as well. I suggest setting up for 3/32" and 1/16" tungsten: ceramic cups, collets, collet bodies, etc. The 3/32" will be the most used of all sizes for general purpose work from 30-200 amps.

                  Tungsten: Use 2% lanthanated tungsten and grind per the Dynasty manual on a bench grinder with an aluminum oxide wheel. Later on you may want to look into a tungsten grinder like the Piranha II

                  Be careful and save your eyes. The Miller Big Window Elite is my favorite.

                  A nice regulator/flowmeter assembly: Gentec

                        on that gauge. it says

                        Flow 0 - 60 SCFH
                        50 PSI Preset

                        what does this mean ?

                          Blown S-10.

                          The flow rate is adjustable from 0-60 CFH and is delivered at 50 PSI. The flow rate is a volumetric measurement and must be delivered by pressure. It is sort of like electrical voltage is a potential measurement and must act against resistance in order to produce current. The pressure has to push the gas in order to create the flow.
