  • New toy on the way

    Ok the deal is done and the TA is shipped to its new owner. First let me say that the TA was my first tig welder and I would recommend it to anyone as it worked flawless for me. As many of you know I bought it because of its value as compared to the Dynasty200DX that I really wanted. Well I really never stopped wanting that Dynasty200DX (notice I didn’t say need here, just want). So now I am in a better position to get whatever I want (within reason) and with that in mind I ordered a Dynasty200DX from my local LWS today. I did not get the contractor kit as I don’t care for the miller remote so I ordered one from SSC controls (in chrome no less), it appears to be a dead ringer for the one that came with the TA185 which I liked very much. I have enough torches, and I only need to make up a work lead and clamp. Good thing it will be a few days to get here as I thought when I built the tig cart I made the shelves big enough to fit the Dynasty, seems I was off an inch or so in the length, so they will need to be modified. No problem as I wanted to do a drawer like Rocky did on his cart anyway. Well that’s the story, oh yeah, the power upgrade I spoke of is mainly to get another 230V line so I can use both the plasma cutter, and the new 230V compressor I am going to get, at the same time. Pictures to come.

          What specifically do you want the dynasty to do that the TA won't??

          I thought you were getting a 300?

            I don't recall saying I was getting a 300, just that I wanted more amps ... well, 15 amps is more. No great mystery here, I always wanted a D200DX ... just because it's what I wanted ... now I can afford it and I am not getting any younger and if I can have what I want, then thats what I am going to get. As to your question ... nothing I can think of, I just want it to be a Miller Dynasty 200DX instead of a Thermal Arc 185TSW. I am, as they say indulging myself.

                          You will get there I am sure, BTW what sort of shop in town is your wife trying to get? I am guessing it has something to do with sewing.
