    Dave,
    If I were to ask for anything, it would be a bit taller button that one could mash for more distance before you maxed out on amps. Or less firm?
    I dunno. If it had a little trigger that hinged over it, say 2" long, and the button was right by the pivot point, then you would gain a ton of travel.
    Just a thought.

      Hi Dave. What is the (DC?) output current of your 110volt power supply? Any chance that could be battery powered?

      I have a Lincoln SW200 that I take on site and could use a finger control but would like the receiver to be cordless.

        That might be something to look at, Garry as an option. kind of an add on. One of the selling points about the TigButton that we hit now is that one does not need to move a finger at all, which I think is what makes it so intuitive.

        Hi Terry! We have a battery pack and charger available for the TigButton. It uses 3ea 18650 batteries and will run the control box for about a week between charges. The big problem at the moment is doing a bit of measurement on the SW200 to determine just what we need to run that machine. We are working on that right now.

        I will post when that is a done deal. We hope its soon!.

        Best wishes all!

        Dave

          Sounds good! I could have sent you the remote connector that plugs into the machine for free, I have a spare here. I always have/order a bunch of random crap I don't need/use!

            Howdy All!

            For a quick update...

            I believe that we have a unit that will now run an HTP welder. We have not had a chance to test it yet, but perhaps Oscar Jr might be interested in taking it on a test drive? My partner Gary said we should be ready to give it a try. Woot!

            I think we are also on the way to getting Everlast set up. Time will tell on that one though. So many welders these days! Goodness!

              I have an aluminum boat coming into the shop that needs me laying on my back zipping up some cracks on its hull. That boat is scheduled to roll up to my shop in about two weeks. If you have this switch for the HTP done and ready, I'll buy one. <br />

              Oscar, work the bugs out for me brother!

                OK... I think we now have a test unit for an HTP welder. Pretty good chance of it working.. LOL but its never 100 percent without taking it for a test run.
                Want to give it a try on your boat job, Ryan?

                Hope everyone is off to a good start this week!

                  If Oscar doesn't have the time to test her out, I'll be your huckleberry....but I think Oscar was lined up before me.

                      Hi Ryan!

                      I chatted with Oscar the other day and sent out a TigButton brand amptrol set for the HTP welder today. He should have it in a few days, Hopefully it works! *fingers and stuff crossed!* and can let us know what the results are and what he thinks.

                      Hope everyone is starting off the week well!

                            Brother Oscar, that is a silly question my friend. You can never have enough argon....

                              Don't know exactly what the shelf life of Argon is , But I had a bottle go bad that was over a year old....supplier took it back and replaced it.

                                It doesn't go bad. It's bottled that way.
