  • I'm curious?
    How many of these do you pass over at a crack for welding? How many over the year? Trying to get a feel for how steady the gig might be, you talking one off or 50 at a time?...

    That's what we wanted to see, practice pictures.
    Could possibly have saved you money on the MIG course? Most of those are long on doing, short on why your doing it but I get it. Nothing like having a personal trainer.
    But signed up, post some pictures of what you do in the

    I was beginning to think it was just me? That's really what's being called out. Someone needs instruction the manual doesn't provide or answer for questions about? It used to be easy when they included a VHS tape with the purchase but not anymore, lol.
    If a guy started a You Tube Channel just...

    You can't buy a carton of smokes In Alberta for $120 bucks...but if you go looking, you can buy an ounce of BC bud for that money. I'm just saying...it goes up in smoke so what? At least you had fun, maybe even learned a thing or two? And at the end of the day, probably ends up the cheaper habit of...

    I went back to square one and noticed it seems the only issue was no clear sr# or manual. That shouldn't be enough to prevent plugging it in, turning it on and see if it hoochies? Did I say that correctly?

  • Sometimes things happen for a reason, sometimes things just happen. I have an old Buick Road Master with a power trunk. Thing stopped doing so I took it apart like I do everything, including my drive motor and gear box, pics attached.
    Anyways...turns out in the Buick, a magnet in the motor had...

    Let me ask a couple more questions of you and then we can have all the cards on the table . Are you welding to a WPS? Are you using .035" wire,
    did this just happen? Was it after a wire change and the gun cable not inserted all he way?
    ER70S-6? Are you doing any prep besides the slit? I'm no expert...

    I have a couple of offerings on the matter. Shielding gas flow isn't offering adequate coverage, nozzle size could be to small and with too long of stick out your sucking in air. 26 Volts is in the spray transfer range, 450 seems high for WFS but who's to say if your not there doing? It could also

  • How about this, disconnect the motor from the gear box, leave the wiring connected, turn on and squeeze the trigger. Does the motor turn? If it does, will the speed adjust with the WFS dial being turned?

    Assuming it not the dreaded board, and you've replaced the CR1 thingy...and being...

    I blame it on demographics, smart phones, and life being hard getting harder north of the border. You wouldn't think a Country known for the sport could do so poorly with it? But I know nothing about it?

    LOL!...you guys in BC have got it too darn good with all that sunshine and herb. I hear the oilers spend time there in the off season for just that reason? Could explain things? Lol...they do say to much sun is no good for you?

    I'm sure digging deeper into it you'll be discover the similarities, and the additions of a torch or pedal won't pose any problems. I hate to admit it but in a solid 30 years of owning my Syncrowave I've never done more then blow the dust off and threw it, so good on you for the effort.

    replied to Long aluminum butt welds
    I'm not a camper builder either. The discussion surrounding what your doing and plans to do it have me thinking, if you post a picture of what it is you placed for a weld, we might see something your missing? Or a better way of doing what your doing? You were building a tank out of carbon steel we wouldn't...

    Circa 1987. Looking at those manuals, I'm sure you'll find them mostly the same power source? I'm sure as well part numbers would change, as might some interchangeability, optional accessories, and advancements in technology... but over all, the same. General maintenance will be similar, as will functions...

    replied to Stainless pipe
    Ok. Now ask the important questions, is it the current that's to high, the on, on too long, or the speed and rotation in progression not quick enough? Is it a wave form response issue? It could also be arc length as an issue? Your using a cycle of on and off, high and low, with duration. After that...

    What size of tungsten are you using? Also the type? How's it ground as far as taper is concerned? I'm assuming you have a purge going on? What makes a successful weld and what's a failure?

  • Call Miller or Digi-key 1-800-344-4539. Best to get the number off what you have although a part number can be cross referenced I'm sure. I'm of the understanding it needs removal to be tested just the same to see if it's functioning? That said, it's what I've read and comes with no experience of truth...

    replied to Aluminum tank lids
    Seems the difference between big business and small business is in the use of drawings. Big business supplies a print and says how much to build this. Small business says this is what I want, what can you build me when you figure it out?

    Then comes the hard choices, buying what's needed...
