    That's an excellent philosophy, fun4now.

    How can you ask questions when you're afraid of getting your head bitten off??

    MACH4:
    So have you tried your new tank of Argon? Is it OK? I don't know how they keep air out of the tanks when they fill them but perhaps the technician just messed it up.

    I don't know why these gas supplier characters are always so defensive about everything. I've been to two: one treated me like I was a pain in his *** and the other is friendly and even asks me what I'm up to welding when I pick up my tank. If I went to him with suspected bad Argon, I think he'd be more than happy to give me a new fill.

    Finding a friendly gas supplier make a big difference, I think. How can you ask questions when you're afraid of getting your head bitten off??

    Mike W,
    I recently had a problem with porosity in carbon TIG weld and no puddle on AC AL. and I thought it might be my HF TIG unit. Long story/short is I sent the unit off to find that the machine performed as it should. Took it back to the shop and tried a different bottle of Argon and guess what,it welded ALL materials with no problem. Took the unused bottle of Argon that was obviously bad back to the supplier and he back peddled more than a campaign politician seeking re-election, stated he couldn't have bad gas as it is "certified pure", I did get a new bottle but this will be my last from AirWeld in Decatur,Ill. Not sure if any members close to this dealer but, watch your a**.

    low end amp's

    you could use a 1/16" tung. for the low end of the dyn.200 like 1-30amps

    for 30A to 120A run a 3/32" tung. 20degree taper and a .020 flat 1.5% lanthanated

    you wont need a 1/8" just sharpin your 3/32" to a 35 degree angle and a .030 flat 2% lanthanated for the higher amps from 120A to the max.

    You shouldn't need to run the Dynasty on any type of phase converter. If you do this, you are only reducing the power efficiency of the unit.
    I just did a repair on one of these where the person connected the red wire to one of the terminals in the plug and it ran poorly as you described. The red wire doesn't need to be used at all when single phasing. A 3/32 electrode should run fine on your machine. Something else is a miss.

    good luck
    Andy

    Don't plug your dynasty into a rotary phase converter if you were smart. I bet your warranty would be voided. It doesn't make any sense to do so with that machine, unless you like making problems for yourself?

    It is my understanding that phase converters are used to facilitate using equipment not designed to run on single phase power. Since the dynasty is equipped for either, I believe that converting single phase to three phase for use on a dynasty200 would result in lower available power for the unit and less efficiency than just plugging the machine into the supply voltage. Phase converters are pricey and it would suck if someone spent money on one for no gain. I may be wrong, Please correct me if I am.

    yea you can get rotary three phase converters but they suck a lot of juice and they are expensive once you get into the high current ones.

    You can get a rotary or a static converter to get 3 phase from single phase. You can buy them or build your own.

    3 phase

    cant you make a converter to make three phase. seems i herd about that here a wile back. HAWK was talking with a few others about it i thought. i might have misunderstood or i could have imagined the hole thing
    maybe HAWK will jump back in and let us know if it was all just a dream i had or not

    Yeah... Would be cool, but...


    The first thing I thought of was what HAWK mentioned about the correct primary wiring. People often know that red and black are used for hot conductors in standard home wiring, so they might think that they are supposed to hook up those two wires when dealing with the Dynasty in a single phase setup...but of course it is the black and white, and red is tied back, as HAWK said...

    Still, reading the original post, it sure seems like a gas problem.
