  • miller process selector

    purchased a rig with an xmt 304 cc/cv. On that rig was a hi freq starter/coolmate3/70 series feeder and the process selector. I do small projects(carts/fencing/signs/repairs) is it vital to the set up or can i part ways with it?

    thank you for the opportunity to post.

      Keep all that stuff!!! Someday you'll be glad you did.
      Welding is addictive. Then you need more machines. You may only need a very few items to have a huge upgrade here.
      Master mig then learn tig next ......

        I'm insufficiently conversant with the 304 to answer your question.

        From the minimal information on line for the process controller my hunch is the engineers, designers and EEOC employees at Miller blew it with the 304 and then invented the process controller once the shortcomings were pointed out to them.

        Educated opinion based on a lot of years welding, the 304 is a brute to switch from process to process - Keep the box and use it to make your day easier.

              Looks like it is only needed/beneficial if you switch between two processes a lot as it only allows a selection between Process 1 and Process 2

              With the Coolmate and Hi Frequency starter I imagine the previous owner switched between Mig and Tig often enough to warrant the process selector add on.

                  Given what Ed dug up it sounds like the welder version of a computer printer selector switch so you didn't need to change plugs and untangle spaghetti.
