    Thanks again guys..

    Sundownlll, Tim
    I will be switching to the Bernard parts ASAP.

    Tim, I will try the .035 wire also.
    I start my class early April and am really lookin forward to that.
    Thank you all again..

      Sundowner,

      I got the centerfire frontend parts today and pulled off the M-25 parts and screwed the parts together???? I am not sure what is going on but the "bernard" insulator (looks like a rubber collar with center section that the defuser screws into) anyways, when I put it all together the parts don't tighten up against the insulator?? (what the heck am I missing)

      I will call Bernard tomorrow if you aren't able to answer.

      Thanks,

      Tim

        Tim,

        Not sure what the problem is. I didn't have any problem converting my M-25 to Bernard.

        You may have to trim the liner slightly to allow the diffuser to seat fully.

        When properly installed, the nozzle will seat securely on the insulator.

        I'd still recommend touching base with Bernard. The folks there are very helpful and knowledgeable.

          Sundowner/straightshot!

          Hey, just a headsup! I called Bernard today to see what was up with my attempt to convert my Miller M-25 gun to a Centerfire Bernard frontend.

          This is what I found, (I needed what is called a "Hexnut insulator" Part#4780 to complete the conversion) For some reason this part is not listed on the conversion chart on their website.

          The good news is after checking 4 LSW's within 50 miles of my place and nto finding the part, the WONDERFUL customer service representative at Bernard informed me "not to worry" they would take care of me! In fact she said she was putting the complete setup including an additonal 10 .030 contacts and 1ea flush and recesses Copper/Brass nozzles in a box and ship to me FOC!! Folks that is a company that will prosper in resessed economic times!!!

            Bernard "Sneak Peek"

            Sometime by the end of this month, Bernard will introduce a new Water-Cooled Center-Fire System for their MIG guns.

                John,

                You bet! Bernard's C/S number is; 708-946-2281. I am convinced we will really like the MM252 with some hours under the hood. I am looking forward to some better weather so I can run some dual shield with it (outside).

                If you haven't done so already there is some good resources under Mig on the company side of this site, as well the Handbook is really well written.

                It might be me but I keep having to turn the voltage slightly lower then the starting point on the chart for my work (technique, or lack there of) probably has a lot to do with it.

                  Yupin' yiminy, you and I just aren't goin' to get along are we? First you buy a Dynasty 200 DX to tease me. Then you buy a 252 to poke a stick in my eye. Next on the list is a Springfield XD 40 to p!ss me off. And now you're gonna build roll cages and other cool off road pieces to ruin my day. So, any room in yer garage fer my cot??

                  Age has nothing to do with it. Job satisfaction is what's happening.

                    Craig,

                    Thought I would give you an update, today a friend came over and brought his Semi-auto (russian built) 12 gauge with 15 round clip (now that is a heater) I showed him some of your whinning posts and he said I could keep the Shotgun to guard the shop investments!! You are welcome anytime to come on up and hole up in the shop! I just got my 330cf Argon tank filled and a pak of blue tungsten so you can practice on the Dynasty and see if you really want one? I won't be welding Saturday as I am going to another gun show to see if I can find some more 40 ammo for my XD. (put 50 rounds down the tube yesterday and not one FTF. (sweet)

                    Are you packed yet??

Whadda mean "whinning posts" Hey, for what's in yer garage, I'll take a chance on that 12 ga. I'm packed, see ya Saturday. I just have to miss the Tannner Gun Show this weekend. 50 rounds and no FTF, well, now I want one more!!

                        Craig,

                        this has got to stop!! I am really a nice guy and you never whine. I read that Twin turbo thread and now I want to get a "real Crotch rocket" I read what NLR said about pulsing and the settings he posted, but haven't quite figured out how that would be emulated on a Dynasty 200dx?? I got the peak amps at 200, the freq set at 200 but the other two settings didn't quite compute??

                        My son just bought a Yamaha RI and he wants me to get on?? (better stick to my 110hp Show polished 117ci SS Vtwin so I can live to be as young as and maybe be able to weld up my own AL urn?

                          I saw that bike on one of your posts and it's real Pretty. I can't imagine YOU welding on it.

                          Here's tonite's welds. 1/8" plate with 1/8" filler. The outside corners were done with no filler. The fillets were done with 1/8" filler. Not bragging fer sure, just showing.

                          Well now, there's a hijack in progress; this thread started out as a MIG thread. Ultrachop and I turned it into a TIG thread.

                            I was having so much fun teasing u that I forgot it was a Mig thread

                            No doubt the guys that can stack them dimes consistantly give you and me a lot to look forward to. (I plan to cut up some more 1/8" coupons today/tomorrow and start all over (my other coupons look like someone tried to hard face on them

                            OP- I won't continue the hijack (I am off to a gun show) to look for a XD40 for Craig
