    I have heard a while back that Miller is making it's own pelican style cases.
    That should free up room for some cool stuff. I am very happy I bought the
    passport it fills my need perfect.It's just like having a 120 welder on steroids and a 220 volt welder that has that very crisp inverter arc. Something that is missing on the 210/251 machines.(when turned up some/ low inductance)

    Yes and then the price too.!!! Maybe a cheaper/better way is if they just added the stick it. Then it would still do tig in a pinch.

Its no problem for me as I have no time restraints on anything I am doing, and I need all the tig practice I can get. I am still thinking about a passport but will wait until you have have yours awhile to decide for sure, maybe by that time they will have the upgraded version with stick & tig & AC & 200 amp capabilities

    I thought you were talking dragging your flux-core machine around.

    Not yet, but I do have a roll of it just in-case my little bottle runs out. My esab machine has a slope setting just for Flux-core, although I have heard the spray settings works very nice too.
    I did use it today on a little repair. A heat shield on a catalytic-converter.
    The CO2 and .030 wire worked perfect for the aluminized steel. It was about 22 gauge. This is one of the main reasons I like the thing. Autobody type welding outside with no huge bottle to lug around. I had 120 volts right there and away I went. It's also so handy to carry with the side pouch. No cables to trip over and all that. Don, I do have my stainless and aluminum out to try pretty soon. I keep forgeting to ask about the nylon liner when I go to the welding store.

    Have you tried any flux core in that thing?? I know it isn't the preferred method to some, but it would be interesting to hear how it performs. I wonder if the inverter would smooth out the f/c some.

    Glad you found some, George. They are good if you want 6011's. Their 6010 Pipecraft isn't bad either. Been using them since Airco was in business.

    I'm using the .045 f/c in the 8VS feeder running it off of the Bobus. I might even try some 1/16 f/c for the big stuff...or atleast to play around. Here is what the .045 will do on 3/8 plate and the feeder.
    That will work for sure , thanks for the pictures.

    Just get you some of those 6011C's I sent you. They are all you'll need for 6011/10. FWIW, I noticed that they are listed on the Airgas site as Lincoln Easy Arc 6011C's now. They were Airco Easy Arc 6011c by Lincoln.

    I still like the 5P+ better. Old habits are hard to break. Although, the .045 flux core I'm running acts a little like the 5P. It even looks better.

    150 STL flashing light

    I too have had the unfortunate "flashing blue light blues" and was wondering if this could use a board upgrade?????????? With mine it seams to better with stainless rods than 7018. Trust me, I'm not a complainer, but the absolute WORST is to be under a vehicle and have this "flashing blue light" thing happen. I have too gone through extensive line testing, ANDY what gives?? Can I have mine upgraded?? (less than six months old). I live in Canada so this could take some explaining to the right people if you know what I mean. Waiting patiently for your response, thanx.

    The only upgrade your Maxstar 150 STL needs is for you to trade it in on a Maxstar 150 STH.
    Dan,

    If I could figure out a way to upgrade for $250 difference or so then I would do it no problem.
