  • Maxstar STH and STL parts compatible?

    Hi everyone, I'm new here and was hoping somebody could help me. I have a maxstar STH that needs new main board. I would like to take the arc starter (high freq) out of the STH and put it into my STL, I have opened both machines and everything looks the same the STL has all the mounts and wiring spots for the high freq board so im thinking i could just swap all the goodies from the STH into my STL.
    Any input and/or advice would be gratefully appreciated.

      Hi, Ryan.regis. Sorry I don't know anything about those machines but I'm sure there must be someone here who does. You might try calling Miller - they are great at phone support - but you may be going beyond what they are likely to support by crossing between machines. However, it can't hurt to ask. Have both machines serial numbers ready and give them a try at 920-734-9821.

        All that is different is the programming from the front 2 boards and the HF capability. Thats about it.
