    replied to no amp control... econotig..
    if anyone read this thread to find an answer to the econotig board prob. Here's the end to my efforts - Paid Innovat Corp 265+13ship to fix the board and send back. Works great but here's the kicker - they didn't replace a single danm component on the board. Every single solder was the same as I left...

    I haven't heard of the switch you're talking about (changing the pot over for the foot control) but honestly I'm ready to get this thing out of the garage. I have an older econotwin(78?) that works great and doesn't use a board for controlling amperage(an old turn crank) and two...

    Sounded good so I googled. The tracker is for smaller current ratings (60v @ .6mA) and the cost is a little too high for now. The board has a few components that are over this rating (thyristor and the IGBT) and might need to operate over the trackers range, but I'm not 100%.

    I've posted...

    3 years later... really??

    Haha, finally got some free time this christmas to relook at it. I came across this old thread! It seems like this is still a common problem so I'll resurrect it and hopefully have a good outcome in the end.

    I did find a newer econotig on ebay...

    Not yet Ray, but $395 for a board keeps me plenty motivated!

    I'm just about ready to list all the components and replace them one by one though. A lot of them are the same so it shouldn't take too long if I go that way. Either way I'll document everything and post it here to help anyone...

    That's good to hear Buk!

    I am still working on understanding the board components and diagnosing the hardware. It's fun and I got a little 20mhz oscilloscope from Craigslist to help.

    If it were on my priority list I would be further along but seeing as a new board is...

  • Hey Ch, I 'll get on it here shortly. I had a test last week and was busy.

    Is there any way to post the pics directly so we don't have to open them up in new tabs?

    Hey Yorkiepap on that pipe jig. You should put a little motor on it so you can turn it. You could weld it...

  • I got a 4 foot 1\2" extension bar for when I took out my tranny. I got a dodge ram. I also made a little pully for the differential nut or bearing... it's been awhile.

    I'll get some pics up as soon as I can.

    replied to welding chair
    Sorry I don't have any pics. I used to weld in a fab shop and we had crappy chairs. We all talked to the man and he ok us to make a chair. We had a pallete full of chair parts. I made a chair that way better than my old one. Saved my butt for sure!

    I gotta see what you make out of a truck...
