    Then again, this could be one of those production tolerances thing where the issue lies in the individual machine and not the remote amperage controller.

      I know this is an old thread and some folks may not appreciate old threads being brought to the top.

      However, I felt very strongly that the TIG Button should be reemphasized for those not familiar with the product.

      I am 77 years old and balancing on one foot and trying to control the foot pedal is just about impossible. I have tried the thumb controls and hate them. I first saw a prototype of this product in our local welding shop a few years ago and fell in love with the concept (easy finger tip control of the amperage). I finally bit the bullet and bought one about a year ago for my Miller Synchrowave 180. It has been an amazing help with my TIG welding.

      When I first started using the TIG Button, I ran into a problem of being “bit” by some stray current when I activated the button. I contacted Dave Vogel and he walked me through the issue. Turned out that Miller sets up some of their welders for a very high high frequency start amperage and somehow that is conducted to the TIG button. The solution was to set the points gap to a minimum. I bring this up to emphasize that Dave was a most helpful vendor.

      Fast forward to this week . To my horror, the TIG Button failed to work and I had to resort to a foot pedal. I contacted Dave and he replied immediately asking me to call him. Over the phone, he quickly walked me though a troubleshooting process and we determined that the flexing in the lead to the torch had loosened the connection. Simple fix and another great support effort by Dave.

      Dave's website is a bit sparse right now - he is rebuilding it. Here is the link:
