    Wow, thanks for all the info guys, I appreciate it.. I looked at the pin locations on our RFCS 14HD at work and it's the same as mine... I will look into the cheaper suppliers you have suggested...thanks again gir your input.

    I got a TigButton. You don't move anything. It's purely pressure that controls the amperage, so you don't have to move your fingers around trying to turn or slide a control, jostling the torch. I did a quick setup/review on it here: https://forum.millerwelds.com/forum/...ts-of-pictures

    Somewhere I saw a hand amptrol (maybe homemade) that used a spring-loaded lever that you ran with your thumb for controlling current, and that looked pretty slick.
    I'm not an expert, but so far I've tried a CK amptrol with the north-south thumb slider, a Miller with a small east-west wheel and one I can't recall the brand that had an oval track with a wheel on each end and a rubber band that you could move with different fingers. I found the small east-west wheel the best, but still have to really think about what I'm doing when I use it (which is rare).

    The new TIG Button looks like a winner and if I was doing a lot of oddball out of position work I think I'd order one immediately...not cheap, but not too bad.

    Not sure if they are still available for ~$100, but the 14-pin Nova pedals work pretty well. They are very similar to the SSC pedals.

    I have two of their foot pedals, one for my HTP and one for my maxstar. If I ever have to replace the one for my syncrowave it will be from them.

    I've bought a number of pedals from SSC controls, and they've all been excellent. They actually frequently sell "cosmetic seconds" or something similar on eBay for less than you can buy them directly through their website. I've bought two of those so far and simply can't find a single flaw anywhere...for something that's going on the floor, get stepped on and kicked around I figured it was worth the chance and I'm glad I bought them.

    That’s what I meant. SSC Controls. I needed some foot pedal wire to make a repair one time, a quick phone and I had it in my hands a day and half later.

    Made in America products too. Getting harder to find.

    I've only seen SSC...
    https://www.ssccontrols.com/product/...ontrol-pedals/ would be the one for a 14-pin miller, like a syncro.

    If we're going to recommend specific brands, I love my TigButton. https://www.6061.com/tigbutton.htm

    Agree on SCC controls. I like their products and they have great service.

    While you're shopping take a look at SCC Controls

    Any of the 14-pin foot controls will work with your machine. You could also opt for a 14-pin hand control that mounts on your torch, if you tend to do welding where a foot pedal is inconvenient.

    Lol...just wanting a new one on hand in case this one let's me down at the most inopportune time, like things always tend to do.
