  • Fingertip control for Dialarc

    Was wondering is there a fingertip control that can be used on a Dialarc HF? I primarily do auto sheet metal fabricating so sitting isn't always an option so in a lot of the welding I do a fingertip control would be a good way to go. So does anyone know which would work or is the machine to much of a dinosaur

    Most pontoon manufacturers went to using an on-off button with those machines. Once you get the hang of it they work great.
    I simply ran a lamp cord from the same connections as my foot pedal so I could use both without re-wiring.

      Presuming you're looking for amperage control as well. you need the very rare and hard to find Miller MIC-4 Interface Control designed just for that purpose and the Dialarc HF.

        Ok I understand the need for amperage control under certain circumstance but for welding sheet metal 16g for example most common size for automotive sheet metal couldn't I just pre-set the amperage on the machine itself, if not please explain?

          Sure you can run it preset and just use an ON/OFF button as FusionKing described with no amperage control but you didn't clarify exactly what it is you want to accomplish.

            Well as I said for the most part I'll be using it for auto sheet metal fabrication, the fingertip control would be used when standing or in these precarious places you find yourself in when building a hot rod, in the interior, laying inside the truck etc. when I can do seated work I would use the foot pedal. Being a newbie in the tig world I need every advantage I can get

              I have been upside down with my feet hanging over the seat back, head crammed up under the dash, the pedal between my knees like a thigh master. I've propped with my torch hand and pushed on the pedal with my elbow....you tend to get creative.
