    3: No idea without looking at some pictures. the only thing I have is a 16 ga. SJOOW cable that is wired to the back of the Dynasty. When the welder is powered up, the pump is running. When the welder goes into standby or powered off, the pump is off.
    Thank you! All very clear. Once again, admirable work, just plain *****! (Agh! I got bleeped out! My apologies to the Miller Forum. The censored word is what they say in California when something's cool. ***** = female doggin'

    Since I don't know anything about coolers, I wonder if you could answer a few newbie questions?

    1) There is no radiator on your cooler. Is that typical?
    2) How did you go about sizing the pump? It looks pretty big.
    3) Some time ago on this site another guy showed his design. It seemed to have quite a bit of control wiring in it. Since yours doesn't, would you know the purpose of the control circuitry?

    The clear poly tubing is a simple sight glass for fluid level.

    How did you build the water cooler? Is it just a piece of 6" sanitary pipe or are there other parts inside? What is that white hose on the front?

    Overall I like it, looks sweet.

    I love it. Beautiful arc and feature rich. I am never in need of the sequencer functions but the AC arc tailoring and overall arc quality leave nothing but contentment.

    started a topic Stainless cart for the new welder.

    Stainless cart for the new welder.

    Been busy enough since I bought my Dynasty 280 DX in January that I have nor made a custom cart for it yet. With scrap and drops from work, and a few extra pieces bought to make up the rest I completed it this morning and am happy with it.

    Not finished yet, but will accommodate a full 330 CF bottle on the back and custom water cooler pump/motor/etc on the bottom.

    Wheels are from Tractor supply, axle is 5/8" solid round stock. The frame is all 2" square 7 gauge.
