      I'm just looking for something to use at home. He wants 400 for it and said the price is negotiable. I just wanted to know if it's a good deal or not.

        If it works, I'd buy it for $400. If nothing else, and depending on your market, you could clean it up and sell it for a little more than you paid for it.

          It hasn't been used in 5 months but it was working then. He said his price is negotiable to so I can probably get it a little cheaper. Only thing he doesn't have is the foot pedal. What would one of those cost me?

            Which foot pedal does it take?

                Alright, well I went to the miller website, search dialarc HF, then scrolled down to the "accessories" tab, and the RFC-23A is the foot pedal listed for it. Same as my helga. Not cheap. From Miller, $442. Try eBay or ask around and see what you can find.

                  Yeah I ended up finding one. The cheapest one I found was 375. Kind of hoping to find a used one but I'm not sure where. Everyone I have seen on eBay has been sold

                    If you can hold out, have some patience and one will pop up. Even if it needs some work, they're pretty simple. I had to wire mine and used an old extension cord on recommendation from H80N. Worked pretty good and a little heavier duty than the original. Not much to the guts of them. $375 for a new ones seems pretty reasonable to me.

                      Would this foot pedal work for the dialarc?

                        I find it highly unlikely...check this link from SSC controls. They make high quality aftermarket foot pedals for all sorts of things. Scroll to the bottom and it explains why they don't make one for that machine and they suggest you just buy the correct part from miller.

                        https://www.ssccontrols.com/tig-cross-reference-guide/

                        Just because it has the same plug on it does not mean it will work. I didn't make the picture big to read the caption, but by the color it looks like an old linde or UC machine pedal. As far as if that pedal is compatible...unless that pedal came from the same machine that uses the RFC-23A pedal (like your dialarc HF or similar), only painted a different for what ever company miller made it for, then no.

                          Contact the seller and ask them to check resistance across the WH (ground) and X terminals of the 3-prong plug. If it's 15ohms +/- it's the correct foot control for the Dialarc HF.

                            If not, the correct resistor that can replace the current one is a little over $80.

                              I ended up finding one today. It's in rough shape but I got it for 100 dollars. Not sure if it even works I'm on my way home now to give it a try. Thanks guys.
