Revamped Build With Blue Offer Available Until June 30

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

Miller Electric Mfg. Co. today announced a revamp of the popular Build with Blue™ rebate offer. Between April 1 and June 30, 2014, customers who purchase qualifying Miller® equipment along with additional Miller or Hobart® products totaling at least $85 on the same invoice will receive an $85 mail-in rebate on the total purchase amount.

In addition to the rebate offer, one qualified rebate entry will be drawn every month to win $850 — in honor of the Miller 85th anniversary celebration.

“As Miller marks its 85th anniversary, much has changed in how we build our world. But one thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment to serve the hardworking people who weld,” said Rich Thompson, vice president of marketing for Miller Electric Mfg. Co. “It continues to be an honor and a privilege to help advance the art and craft of welding, making it easier, more productive and more fulfilling.”

Prices for the eligible equipment list referenced below reflect the Miller suggested price (MSP) before the applied rebate.

Customers will receive the rebate approximately four weeks following submission of the mail-in rebate form. For more information on the Build with Blue rebate offer, customers can visit their local distributor or

Tune into Live King of the Hammers Racing Coverage

Thursday, February 6th, 2014

Miller Welders is excited to be the official welding sponsor of the Ultra 4 Racing Series. As a result of the expanded partnership, all race participants attending the Johnson Valley, Calif.-based 2014 Griffin King of the Hammers (KOH race) this week and all other events in the series will have free access to welding and cutting products for onsite repair and pit support needs.

For the previous two years, Miller Welders sponsored only the KOH race, living in the desert alongside the racers and spectators during the annual week-long event.

“We were able to experience how our products were used in countless welding repair situations, as well as to connect with racers from every level as to how welding was used in the fabrication of their vehicle, said John Swartz, Marketing Manager for Miller Welders. “Knowing that our machines can hold up and perform in the harsh desert environment should provide customers with confidence that products will provide years of operation in any race shop or home garage.”

The welding and cutting products is housed in an Ultra 4 Series trailer which will travel to and from each event. During the King of the Hammers events, race participants can access the trailer located in Hammertown. The Fab School, Blue Torch Fabworks and Miller Motorsports, all friends and partners of Miller Welders, are onsite to provide welding assistance and pit support in Johnson Valley.

In addition, Jason Carner and Peter Basler of Blue Torch Fabworks will field a custom-built Miller Welders-branded race vehicle for the KOH race tomorrow featuring innovative new products from their line of do-it-yourself parts and kits for custom off-road fabrication projects.

“Miller Welders would like to wish all the racers the best of luck this year and hopes for another wildly successful event for Ultra 4 Series Executive Director Dave Cole.”

Cotati Speed Shop, Miller Use Diversion™ 180 to Create Aluminum Air Pan for ’48 F1 Ford Pickup

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

In this video, I used a Diversion™ 180 TIG welder to create an aluminum air pan for a ’48 F1 Ford pickup truck. In this video, you’ll see that I also demonstrate how to weld with different material thicknesses. As always, make sure you start with clean material. I am using 5356 aluminum filler for this particular project, but cut it in half for easier use. When you’re welding with materials with different thicknesses, the Diversion™ 180 is an ideal welder for the DIYer because of its ability to let you easily dial in the material type and thickness on the machine. When working with thinner aluminum material, consider skipping welds to prevent warpage and evenly distribute the heat. An example of skip welding would be making a one-in weld and then skipping six-inches before making the next one-in weld. When skip welding, try using silicone filler to create a better seal. Another tip to remember when using different material thicknesses is to preheat. In this video, the ½-in plate is outside maximum capability of machine. To get around it, preheat the thicker material to make it easier for puddle to wet out.
