  • Ordered a TIG button today ... I guess they have a new "SlimLine" model out, saw some pics so I got one of those. Hopefully I'll like it.

  • BTW ... I ordered and installed one of the "Touch 4" finger tip controls from SSC for the new TIG machine.... don't like it one bit, WAY too sensitive, almost impossible to control the four steps while moving the torch. Took it apart and added a spring ... almost usable but for the most part...

    Has anyone used one of those pistol grip torches? Seems like it might be good for production bench welding that didn't require a lot of versatility.

    How about $200 + shipping? And hopefully the one in my machine won't die and I'll regret this
    I'm easiest to contact by email [email protected] I'm in upstate NY so shipping should be very low.
    Thanks for the help with my question on the forum too.

  • I'll probably be ordering one of those ... but for ...errr.. a new red machine that is on the way I've got the syncro for sale now, just don't need that size TIG welder anymore. I need small things that are easy for my wife to sell when I croak.

  • Checked the cable last night for continuity between pins. But the way I was doing it I only had a tone for continuity, wasn't watching the meter for values ... got no tone on C and D. I did get continuity changing between too pins when I operated the switch. Did find one spot where the cable had a gouge...

    Sounds like I'm in the ball park, depending on where I list it I've priced it from $2K (would take $1600), and other places (where I know people/friends) $1600 and I'd probably take $1400 cause they are from my racing days and it would be an easy transaction. I'm flexible, don't need to get the last...

  • It is a contactor/amperage control ... has roll switch ... so like a volume control with an on-off position at the start. I mostly checked continuity between the plug at the switch end, and the amperol plug ... and between a few pins. I'll check it more thoroughly tonight ... I kind of figured since...

    Thank you. I'm trying to find the specs to test the LEM module now, looks brand new but would like to test it before I sell it. It's part number 156313, has a 9536 sticker on it, and the board is 1209-10 ... I'd guess from about 1996 ... I know I bought the welder in 93 and the main board went just...

  • Very helpful ... as far as what I can understand
    Board is labeled KD-39, assembly no. 138307 Resistor looks like R-90

    Do you know of a way to test that LEM current module? Part No. 156313 with a 9536 sticker, board says 1209-10. Appears to be brandy new, but I'll probably sell...

    Value for a Syncrowave 250

    I'm considering selling my 1993 Syncrowave 250 ... I bought it new in 93. All it's seen is home shop use, I'd guess total hours are about 500-600. Cosmetically it's a 9 out of 10. It's got a broken on/off switch (replacement $200+), I've been turning it on and off with the breaker for decades. No water...

  • Here are a couple of pics. One of some new parts that the Miller tech threw into the box as a "gift" because of my problems. Another of the burnt out resistor on the MB. The resistor has obviously been replaced before and burnt out again ... this was a "new" replacement board. Not...

  • Yep, it was a Miller brand control, still have it, checked it yesterday for shorts, can't find anything. I was thinking about going with an aftermarket control next ... just don't want to take a chance with an $1100 board using the same control again. Actually I might end up selling the machine soon...

    Syncrowave 250 finger tip control

    I've got a late 90's Sycrowave 250 that I bought new and have been using for years. Way back when it was a couple of years old I bought a finger tip control/contactor for it .... used it for a while and then the main board burned out. What would burn out was the amperage control, would still work in...
