    Thanks guys, I appreciate all your ideas, and what neighbor wouldn't want the gift of a continuous melody from a "magnum windchime".

    Failed O2 Cylinder

    Anybody have an idea for a good use for a size K oxygen cylinder that failed hydro test? Had to send mine off for test a few weeks ago before it could be filled. It came back with no details other than that it failed the test.

    Now I have either a major paper weight or another project....

    Keith,

    The 330 a/bp is still a solid workhorse. Believe it or not, people actually welded well BEFORE squarewave machines too. According to my manual, mine weighs 830 lbs, is 20" wide, 30" deep and about 47" tall including the lift eye.

    When I bought...

    John,
    Finally had a chance to ask my brother-in-law about the aircraft manufacturer using the mig process of 4130. He said it is American Champion Aircraft, they took over building the Belanka Scout. I think this is a case where the FAA had to get out of the way unless they can prove a particular...

    iso50,

    I'd only add that one good indicator of relative condition of the would be the amount of blow-by getting around the rings. A quick and easy ballpark indicator is to remove the oil filler cap while it's running. If you see/feel an easily perceptible amount vapor escaping the filler...

    Is that Andy quick or what?? I think his keyboard is more aerodynamic than mine. This could require a rule change!!

    replied to 320 A/BP Help
    Hillbilly,

    I think the 320 A/BP is very similar to my 330 A/BP, just that yours is duty rated at 200 amps and mine is 300.

    Went through a similar thought process, that is, trying to drive a wirefeed with the A/BP. The issue is that the A/BP series is a constant current...

    JT,

    Thanks, that's what I needed to know. In the long run, it will be cheaper than an abrasive chop saw! And a lot less mess too!!

    Blondie,

    I'm with you on that, I've seen more marketing than quality out of DeWalt.

    replied to Chop saw safety
    Anybody tried the new saws offered by DeWalt and others? A small metal supplier I sometimes use had one in use the last time I stopped by. It had a 12" carbide tipped blade, and cut mild steel tubing in about 1/3 the time of my abrasive chop saw. I found them on the Dewalt web site, with a suggested...

    Sparky,

    Since you mentioned that your helmet works well with your conventional TIG machine, it certainly sounds like the helmet is flashing you while on the background portion of the pulse.

    Adding more ambiant light might help, though you may need a more sensitive helmet...

    replied to 30A and WC-115 combo
    Just ran across info on the Millermatic Pulser, which seems to be tailored toward thin aluminum, but would still lean toward the MM251 and 30A if it is suitable for Al sheet down to .063". The 251/30A would seem to give me much more flexibility on the upper end for just about the same money as...

    replied to 30A and WC-115 combo
    Thanks guys, that's exactly the help I needed. I could tell from individual product spec sheets that the combination would work, but needed to hear someone's advice on whether it would work well. Sounds like suitable for varying applications.

    My 330 A/BP would be the power source. ...
