    I did get to run it today quite a bit before the tool cart disaster..only ran 110v and .023. Went and got the 80 cf tank filled and 3 new tips and nozzle..32 dollars. Does nice on exhaust tubing

    That's a reason for thinking I don't need to have a spool gun for it...mainly going to run it on 110 for the light stuff..if I scrounge up the right gun I'll do it but really can't pay for a new one right now

    Thanks.. I did overlook it. I thought pretty hard about all that and I really don't think I'll add one. I have a much better miller 30 on my shopmaster and got a smaller one on the hobart. That spoolmate 150 won't even work on it without mods and it's not really important since I have the other 2. I think I'll post this 150 for sale and maybe buy another tank or something. I really do appreciate the help. I still may add one to it later

    See page # 52 of your manual

    Looks like the switch in my iron man 210 will work. And I'm not certain yet but I may not need a control box. I'm going to transfer it out and see. If I read it it right my hobart spool and switch will work. Any help there would be greatly appreciated. My shopmaster came set up and so did my hobart. I really don't want to chance it though...I'll keep reading and researching. Thanks for any input

    I am curious about the spool gun that came with it. The machine has a place for the switch beside the wire feeder but no switch. I didn't find anything in the manual about the spool gun..it's a spoolmate 150. My shopmaster has a separate control box that plugs into its 110 port for the spool gun. I'll read more before connecting it. Looks like it'll plug right in

    The dvi has a low duty cycle but I wanted it mostly for exhaust pipe work. Lots of converter replacements and general exhaust work... duty cycle will be fine for what I'll do with it.

    I love the 210 also...it has the digital amp read, hf start, pulse up to 250 pps I think. Does real nice on thin stuff and can adjust a little finer than the 150...just weighs double and a half

    Ya, it has good low end arc stability. The shop where we have our drag car we have a big Lincoln precision tig, which I really like on aluminum. But when it comes to stainless and the thinner stuff, I like that maxstar.

    I like it having both voltage plugs like the maxstar. Be good for exhaust and other thinner stuff

    Yeah..that hobart is only 220 and the shops millermatic is harder to move than my shopmaster...it's unreal awkward with its custom made cart/emergency response to anything design. I loved my stl 150 but I did buy it's bigger brother maxstar 210 just a few weeks ago. I will buy another 150 but I'll get the STH next time.

    I have zero experience with the machine you have there, but I really like my maxstar 150. I have the STH though. I would guess that your new machine fills a gap in your fleet?

    I'm happy, we have a millermatic 135 at the shop and it's a little bulky, that's the reason I don't use it..I'll post a pic. It's so far from practical it's funny. It's on a custom welding cart built by our shop a couple years ago...takes 2 guys to move it for real.

    Came with a new in box spool gun and 3 rolls of wire. 2 Aluminum and 1 stainless. I think I'll sell the hobart ironman I have now. It's a 220v machine. I know the dvi isn't as powerful as the ironman 210 but my shopmaster is and then some.
