  • anybody know anything about this controller?

    I came across this torch-mounted remote amp controller. It appears to be some type of multi-level switch.

    http://www.touch4tig.com/

    The reason it interested me is that, for out-of position welding, I currently use one of the Miller thumb wheel controllers that I have modified with a contactor switch. This at least allows me to stop welding when it gets too hot. Seems like if I just had a couple more power levels besides ON and OFF, I might be able to do good continuous welds.

    Anybody used one of these or know anything about it ?

    I can see the application. I have a thumb wheel that I use with my maxstar for some out of position work. I actually pretty much hate it to be honest. It is difficult for me to accurately control the heat and keep the dadgum torch still. Lately, when I find myself in that predicament, I'll the lift arc function on the maxstar (if I'm using that machine) or I'll scratch start it.

    Let me know how you like it.

      OK. I have only had this thing a little while, but already I am tending to use it for everything. Works as advertised.

      The construction seems a little light, but it is supposed to be made out of glass reinforced nylon, so I think it would be hard to actually break it. We'll see.

      You really can change power levels without affecting your arc length. Great !

      I think with a little practice, you could do anything with this controller.
