  • My antique TIG welders.

    I have had two of these little TIG welders for more than 7 or 8 years and never saw them work. I got them from the LWS where I work now. I made this brass adaptor for the torch hook up and the gas hose. I bought a new power cable and a 17V torch. Tomorrow I will give them a try. Need to go turn down the brass for the ground cable...Bob

        Where would a machine like that be used? Maybe in an electronics shop? Kind of looks like those really small tig welders some Jewelers use.

            Got everything hooked up and no arc. The machine was orig computer driven when it was an orbital welder. It has HF inside as I saw a spark plug and a coil. So do I need to run a remote trigger or foot switch? I was just under the impression that it would just weld, but I don't have much tig no how. I can take pics of the inside...Bob

              looks like Liburdi Engineering Limited bought out "Dimetrics" who look like the original makers of your "Centaur 75" orbital TIG supplies

              Maybe they can give you an interface pinout & or manual...............

              From he look of your faceplate pic I would guess them to be mid-late 1970's vintage
              .... should be relatively simple to figure out which pins start the sequence on the "REMOTE" connector

                Thanks. I will open the cover and see inside again. I know the coil looks like a Ford early 70's vintage...Bob

                      I would call Liburdi and see if they have the docs and connector pinouts.........
