    Hi, I just purchased a used miller thunderbolt 225, thinking it was a AC DC welder. It turned out to be a AC constant current only. Is it possible to tig weld this machine or am I stuck with a buzz box only. I'm not sorry I bought it, it welds great.

          I think the answer is "No"; there was a thread when the new model was released and it left folks that had just purchased the "old" model SOL.

            KB did write this though..

            "I could probably help if you would give a little better explanation of your HF problem. The Dynasty's are sensitive in respect to the tig start parameters so it may be as simple as changing a couple of the settings via hidden menu.
            "

            but I still can't find a post on what those changes are

              Neither can I, I know I read something about adjustments for the older machines.

              My 200DX is having some intermittent issues of starting at lower power levels. Like when I want to just ease the power on as apposed to the arc just POPPING on. This is most apparent while in AC mode

                ... on that note I did find one where he said to go in to the Hidden menu and reset the Start amps to say 5amps for thin wall AL.

                  What you have to do is go into your start parameter hidden menu. From there you need to set the start amperage to something relatively high like 100 amps. Also, make sure that with AC you have start set to electrode positive. Otherwise, you will struggle to establish the arc. Then, make sure you set the start time to be somewhat proportional to the start amperage. For a 100 amp start, I would begin in the 10 to 20 milliamp range and work your way from there. There is no reason you shouldn't be able to get a good start with the older model 200's. It just takes a little richarding around.

                        Dynasty 200 torch

                        I am looking for a new air torch for a Dynasty 200 - I have conflicting info about whether the Weldcraft LS1712R is compatible with the Dynasty 200.

                        I can't find any specific info on the Weldcraft site so maybe this torch model is discontinued.

                        Does anyone have any relevant information as to whether this torch will work or not?

                        Thanks in advance.

                          It should work fine. The LS1712R is a 12ft cable (rubber) and a 17 size torch. Here is a link to a seller....http://www.uswelders.com/product_det...product_id=307

                          You want a remote cable with the 14 pin connection, not a 5 pin connector.

                              Converting a Dynasty 200 to a plasma cutter.

                              I'm sure this subject has been approached before, can anyone direct me to the dicussion.
                              "is it possible to convert my dynasty 200 to a plasma cutter"? I would like to be able to switch back and forth.
                              thanks...
