            160+ dollars. I always just make mine for about 25. Much less if you don't want it seperate from pedal connector. I've used doorbells old mig gun triggers etc. You can piggyback your trigger connection to your pedal so you can use either. Just depends how pretty you want it. I just use small gage 2 conductor control wire. You can get connector components from digikey or buy complete connectors from ssc controls.

              or you might look into the WeldTec switches...

              http://tectorch.com/control%20switches.htm

              there are probably others as well...

              had thought SSC Controls had them... but could not find them on their site...

                I like the triggers out of a bernard mig gun, a cable and a 20-27 male 14 pin amphenol, otherwise I use a rubber covered button out of a T-dyne plas torch

                Merely use a 2 wire 20 gage cable and solder pins "A" & "B"

                  So your saying if I wire one side of the switch to the A pin and one to the B pin I'll have a push and hold ON and release OFF in the standard mode??

                        Didn't work

                        Well guys I wired the switch between A & B pushed the button and all I got was gas and the high frequency start. (no amperage) I was in the standard mode. I guess I'll just break down and buy the plug with the switch unless you all got another idea. Does any one know how many pins are in the miller remote switch plug??

                            14 pins. only A-B used. Set machine to local.
                            You will control current at machine. Just an on-off switch.

                              ?

                              In the standard mode wouldn't that be the settings on the panel. Meaning the same setting as if you we're using the foot pedal?? I'm not wanting any up or down slope just the panel settings with push on release off. I use a thermarc machine at work and there I have the button wired into the plug but on the machine I have to push a botton to go from remote button to foot pedal.
