    Heya H80N!

    That is a good question. I will discuss that with Gary, my partner and electronic guru!

    Thank you for the suggestion!

        Dave, can you make this thing work on an airco 3a? Same as a Miller 330 a/bp. My guess is probably not since my helga is so old and ornery.

          Well the verdict is in for the TIG Button on the HTP Invertig 221 tig welder....


          Man, I LOVE this thing! The button sure is sensitive, which is a good thing, IMO. It means that you don't have to exert almost any force with your index finger, which in turns alleviates the tendency to develop a "kung fu" grip on the torch that inevitably limits mobility and fine motor control of your hand. I tried it both on regular DC welding, and with the pulser, and it worked as good as the stock pedal. I have the CK rotary track and slider amptrols, but I doubt I'm ever gonna use them again, this thing is that good. A+.

            How about on AC?

              I can do that too. I have no doubt it will work just fine.

                Sounds like it will be an excellent addition to the arsenal for welding up cages. I will have a drag car roll in for some cage work here in a few weeks. I used to use the thumb knob....hate it. I think I'd rather use lift arc.

                Thanks for being the test dummy, Oscar!

                  No problem. This thing is worth its weight in gold, IMO.

                    Thank you so very much for testing that for us, Oscar! I am glad to hear that we got it right. LOL There is always a bit of a question if it will work with a new machine we are setting up for the first time.

                    I appreciate the very kind words as well. I do think that the TigButton brand amperage control is the most intuitive and easiest to use hand control out there.

                    Talked to a few folks the last week or so about the HTP machines and it seems like they really do a nice job.

                    We are making progress on a new unit for the Lincolns and other brand which we cannot control at present. As soon as that unit is complete I will pass word.

                    Hope every one is having a good week!

                      I'm ready to buy one for my HTP, Dave.

                        According to another fellow, the HTP 221 package should be on the www.tigcontrol.com website by the end of the week. So just keep an eye out for it.

                          Dave, I have some good info for you before you send out another for the HTP 221


                          It occurred to me to see how close the TIG Button got to the machine requested amperage. The values were a little lower than I had hoped, but then it also occurred to me, well just how close does the stock foot pedal deliver the requested amperage as well. Then I felt better. The TIG Button is within 1% difference from the stock foot pedal, and within 3% from the amperage requested at the machine panel.

                          Differences are minimal, but perhaps you can make even better than what the machine comes with!

                            Now that is some nice work IMO.
                            I'm not sure you'll find Miller any more accurate.

                              Thank you. It was quite the chore holding the torch in place and turning my head to see the amperage on the machine panel.

                                Maybe Tigwoof will just add that chart to the manual!
