  • New Millermatic 211

    I just want to comment on the new Millermatic 211, I got mine last week and I just can not say enough to praise it. If anyone is looking for a dual voltage machine that is portable this is truly the one to get. I have not tried it on 220V yet but it is just so smooth on 110V Using the auto set is a help but it has to be adjusted on the feed side to get it running really smooth. Luckily for Miller they did not have this machine out last year, had they I doubt if I would have a Dynasty 200DX as well.
    I think my toy chest is just about full now.
    Cheers
    James.

    James,
    I'm glad to hear you like it. I am in the process of trying to sell my 140AS so I can upgrade to the 211. I need more amps for my hobby business.
    I want to hear more about how it does on 220V. If you get a chance to try it, or someone else has used one on 220V, give us your thoughts.
    Thanks for the post.
    Burt

        I've been using the 211 for a couple of months now and am also really happy with it. On auto set, how do you adjust just the "feed side"? On auto set, mine only seems to have one knob for fine tuning and I assumed it adjusted voltage and wire speed at the same time. My experience is limited but I find that my best welds come with the auto set setting on the low side of the thickness range. I'll be experimenting with the manual settings on my next project. I'm using it on 220v and haven't maxed it out yet with my 1/4" and under projects.

          Miller 211 Autoset is for .030 and .035 wire

          I really like my new Miller 211AS.

          I was surprised that the Autoset feature was for .030 and .035 wire. My 140AS was .024 and .030.
          That is not mentioned in the catalog, literature, or on their website.
          Doesn't make that much difference, but I use .024 in my small business so I have a lot of that wire to use up.

                  I also just picked up this unit for a great deal, and have yet to even plug it in, but noticed that the "Autoset" function dosent have a setting for .023 wire? Only the larger 30..... I am doing autobody panel work... so I guess I'm back to setting it up in the standard mode? I am very new at this and it is my first MIG machine, I have a TIG, and I'm looking forward to the speed and ease of use of this MIG over my TIG.

                    new millermatic 211

                    Just a question, is the on-off power switch on the front of the machine or the back?

                      I also bought a MM211AS and I love it. I used it on welding 1/8 steel on 110v and very smooth and easy. Now I welded the same thickness on 220v and I had to move fast. I think it had deeper penatration on 220v. Maybe I should have dropped the heat a little,but it did a great job. Have to say I think what I like most about this machine is the smoothness of it, and the flexability of having 110 or 220 volts.

                        The power switch is located in the back right cornor when you are looking at the front of the machine.

                          Thanks Arnold, I have been racking my brain trying to decide between the Miller 211 and 212. Tell me, have you had any trouble with the spoolmatic 100? I have heard some talk about trouble sometimes with this gun.

                            I bought a new spoolmate 100 when I bought the unit, but I haven't used it yet. I only bought it because it was recomended because aluminum gets caught in the torch. It does not want to slide through the torch as easy as steel does. And I will not be using the spoolmate untill I get to AZ. I have alot of aluminum welding to do on my carport. I won't get there till Oct 2009. If you use yours let me know how you like it. I have not found anyone who has used a spoolmate 100 with a M211 yet. All the feedback that I have read about on the M211 have been positive. I haven't done any MIG welding since 1980. But I tll you I love this machine. Once you get back in the groove of things its great.

                              The on/off switch is on the back, upper right side facing the machine.

                              I have found the chart inside the door is pretty much "spot on" for the .023 wire. I just got used to using the AutoSet feature on my 140AS, so it is kind of aggravating to open the side and look up each setting. Maybe I will memorize them by the time I use up all of my .023 and switch to .030.
