  • Multiprocess machine

    I am looking buy a multiprocess machine for my shop. I only have single phase. I have a bobcat 250 nt on my truck and a suitcase x treme I run off it, but I want something to plug in in my shop that I can hook a spool gun to and stick and tig with. I've done some shopping and have found a few machines. But havent found one that also does ac tig. Does anyone know of a multiprocess machine that can stick, mig, and tig, has a built in high freq and ac tig? Or am I asking to much and need to buy a few seperate machines? This is for my personal fab shop. I'm not looking to go spend $10,000. Hopefully $5000 will get me where I need to go.

    Take a look at the Sync 210

    should fit the bill

      That would be my choice also. I have one on the floor but it isn't spool gun ready like the newer model. I just got in a new Multimatic 215 today but its not AC. Sucks too because if it was I would own it today...Bob

        I hate to recommend anything other than Miller but ESAB's Rebel I believe does it all. I have a Dynasty 200, can't MIG with it but can Stick and TIG, Ac and DC
        if there's a welder, there's a way

          You are mistaken

          The ESAB Rebel is DC Lift TIG only........and CANNOT do AC TIG....
          it lacks all of the adjustability/versatility of the Sync 210
          no Pedal...no AC Balance... no Frequency....no Pulse....no HF Start....

          The two machines are NOT Comparable

          The Sync 210 is a FULL FEATURED CC TIG/Stick machine with CV spoolgun support.... and the ability to update/upgrade the firmware programming...

            Yup, syncrowave is the ticket. <br />
            <br />
            $10k budget? And you're at a loss as to what machine? Cmon man! Go see your LWS and buy a syncrowave and have money left for beer. You'll be glad you did. <br />
            <br />
            And H80N is right, that esab doofloppy is DC only. <br />
            <br />
            And you can run your syncrowave off your bobcat when you need to be portable.

              I See I was mistaken. Fair enough.

              I figured Miller would have something, just didn't look.

              That syncrowave sounds pretty sweet.
              if there's a welder, there's a way

                  thanks for the input. Sounds like the 210 is the way to go but from what I have read it is only rated for up to 1/4 plate. Has anyone used one of these machines? Is that rating correct or will it weld bigger stuff? What is the next machine up from the 210 that does what it does?

                    Easy enough..... for thicker materiel,,,, just multipass.... same as you would with your Bobcat 250................

                      None that I can think of in an all in one package. You other choice is a shopmaster which is a AC/DC stick Mig power source. But to that you will need to add a feeder like a 22A and a HF arc start box for the tig. Depending on which version of the shopmaster you can find will determine what controls are on it. This is a simple set up with no fancy controls. Have worked on older units set up this way and they weld very nice. No experience with the current production units.

                        But the Shopmaster makes a LOUSY AC TIG machine........... (and was Discontinued around 2003)

                        EDIT: FWIW.... the current model SHOPMATE 300X has NO AC capability at all.... is DC Only..

                            I am looking for some description of what size, rating, specs to put a battery on my Blue star 2 E AC/DC welder that doesn't have a battery after a few years. Can someone tell me which one would be a good choice from Oreilly, Tractor Supplyor even Walmart? Much thanks for the help
