  • Dynasty Welding Book?

    Guys
    Have been Tig Welding since the late 1960's..... so am not looking for a beginners instruction book...... What I am hoping for is a Cookbook/Instruction Book that Addresses the extended capabilities of the Dynasty Machines.... Added a Dyn 350 Tigrunner about a year and a half ago and a Dyn 200 (Blue Lightning) a few months ago..... to our arsenal... these machines have HUGE capabilities beyond the old Chopper or Mag-Amp Tig machines...... was hoping that someone at Miller or one of our resident experts had started on such a project...... if nothing else maybe we could use this thread to exchange favorite setting info,, quirks,, tricks,, etc for these exceptional inverters......
    Would be Nice if Miller were to add an additional chapter to the Tig Handbook that addresses this new universe of possibles... (but a whole book would ge great..)
    Tnx

    I would agree with you on this.
    I don't care about any video or some book on old transformer tigging but I would buy and read a book on using a full featured inverter tig machine to its full capacity for sure!!
    That is if it was relevent to what I own...MILLER.

    I think the author of the Tig welding for Dummies book should do this job for sure.

      as you know these Dynasties have HUGE capabilities... like comparing a Ferarri to a Model T.... I would gladly Pay for a book that simplifies the optimization of these wonderful machines... otherwise it might take years to figure out some of the high points...

        New Kid on the block

        I know I'm a new kid here but totally agree. I suggested befor that maybe a user specific section could be created here for specifications. I also am into metal detecting big time and at White Metal Detecting we have a forum that get lots and lots of posts from user specific settings for a particular type of ground search and type of items searched. I think we could use the same type of information here.

        Set up showing metal type, thickness, then the welder type, setup of amps, sine wave, frequency, etc. Until someone offers a complete book, I think we are the best source of information for each other.

        Since I am a new Dynasty 350 owner, I would love to see user tried and true settings for different metal types. I'm sure all the other owners would thing that is a great starting point as well.

          I would as well. I just got this thing, and it really is cool, except Im kind of lost with all the hidden menu's.. I read the manual, ha, I still couldnt figure some stuff out till I searched on here... Probably alot more that could be said about how to use these machines to their fullest..

              Have you checked these http://www.millerwelds.com/education...pamphlets.html in the resources banner
              They can be downloaded PDF format for free.
              Or the best deal is the student package for $25.00 comes with all 3 Calculators.

              Or the Lincoln's Procedure handbook http://www.jflf.org/

                yes there are some good beginner booklets there BUT not what we are looking for..... what we need is a Handbook titled something like

                "ADVANCED INVERTER TIG WELDING TECHNIQUES"

                that would go into some depth on the advanced capabilities of the Dynasty machines.... I have been looking and have not found this book yet.. it probably has not been written yet....

                How about it Miller???? you would sell a ton of books to those of us who have already invested in the technology.... and sell new machines to the users who are trying to understand and justify the double sized price of an inverter compared to a conventional machine.

                Tnx

                      good article but .. pretty short... Methinks that the subject warrents a lot more depth... ( a book would be the ticket)
                      Thanks

                          You know, it's funny you ask. I'm currently looking into additional methods of education and training on our TIG machines as well as the TIG process in general. We do have a ton of TIG information on the Miller website right now for beginner up to advanced welder, but we also realize that it's not always easy to find or in the format that you would prefer. Some prefer books, some like in depth articles about specific applications or procedures and some like videos where they can see what’s going on. I've even received several requests from individuals for live hands on educational seminars put on by Miller so that they can ask questions and get immediate feedback. So my questions to all of you would be: What learning tools would you prefer: a book, videos, live training/seminars spread out at locations around the country? Also, what subject matter are you in need of the most; what TIG machine to buy, specific applications or techniques, what do specific machine features do, etc?

                          Like anything else, the more you are interested in something, the more you want to learn about it. This in turn continues to feed the interest. Personally I feel the more we here at Miller can keep you informed and interested about welding; the better it is for the both of us.

                          I'm very interested in reading all your input.

                            Have to agree with all posters. My two Wheat pennies is that the owners manual is common knowledge poor at best and I've read it multiple times. It does an outstanding job at safety orientation but is bluntly piss poor if you're learning pulsing. Forget any advanced operations, just forget it. Learn it yourself on the internet.

                              John, Glad to see your reply.
                              I think a book based on the Dynasty series that took into account every single function, and went into depth with the cause and effect of that functions entire range would be sufficient for starters. Then go into detail on common techiques of using each function. By doing that and diccussing the effect on material types and thicknesses, it would be quite lengthy.
                              Something like..."Getting the most out of your inverter tig machine"
                              I bet it would take at least a year to write.
                              Then a class/seminar thing might work but it would just be nice to get something into print that could be thrown into the truck at all times or in the shop depending on where the machine was.
                              The "dummy" book was great..it layed a groundwork for many. I even like it. It also proved your ability to write good concise info as well. Making it fairly clear another better more technical book would be possible.
                              I believe you need to go to both big and small shops and pick brains on what people are doing with these machines as well and then mix that in with the intended purpose of the funtions.
                              I have "invented" a trick or two and I'm sure there would be some others out there I could use eveyday as well.
                              The newsletter thing you guys send out could be something that had newer techniques as well when you run across them. Right now everything I get like that seems to be more geared towards selling new machines IMO.
                              I wouldn't be too keen on paying for a seminar only to find out it was a waste of time tho in this economy. Unless it was cheap enuff. maybe more of a forum based get together?? With Miller bringing stuff to work with??
