    You are a nice guy Cope
    Mike, before I got my MM210, I had a PowCon SM200 with a 10' Tweco gun. A member at Hobart Weld Talk sent me a NIB 12' Bernard or Tregaskiss gun and consumables free. I am just paying it forward.

        This is the plug for the power cord. Mind has gone blank, and can't remember the NEMA number.

        This is the matching wall receptacle.

            Looks like it has got the voltage selector knob on it already. If it is not changing then it likely has a broken roll pin (easy fix) or then nut has come off the back side (easy too). Pull the cover and see what is happening when you turn the knob.

              Ya i found the knob in the weld shop. It was sitting on a shelf lol. When i turn the knob the inner part turns with it. Im going to switch it to the lower setting and see if i notice a difference then.
              Also cope i sent ya my address, and once again thanks so much.

                  That machine has a lot of poop, if you want to run it hard an 8 wire I believe, 50A breaker, if your demand is modest it could run from a 10.

                    Well i just found this out today, i cant wire in a 50a 220 due to the fact its a rental. The dryer is right inside the door so il be making a cord for it following an online guide. Also if i get ambitious i might paint it with some ppg paint and clear it. Iirc miller still makes the decals. Also a pic of internals, thoughts?

                      Check for the other current MM200 thread. IIRC, the owner had to have decals made for his machine.

                      When you get the plug to match your dryer receptacle, it will have a wiring diagram. Usually black and white to line, and green to neutral.

                        Should be pretty simple, I worked with a contractor for a year so hopefully i didnt forget everything when i moved to a metal shop haha
                        So hopefully last question, this one not so dumb haha. Since il be running it off a 30a breaker should i set the voltage input to 200 or 230? (I have the 200v/230v not 230, 460). Or is that for something completely different..? Il be welding mostly 3/16 and every once in a while 1/4 inch.

                          Set voltage for 230 volts.

                              Zach, if the electrical wire won't plug in directly, you can cut the Cannon connector off and use whatever it takes. There is no polarity on the leads. Someone at the shop should be able to help you if you can't figure it out from the manual.
