    replied to Hobart or Miller
    My opinion. In that size machine no need to spend the extra money for a Miller. The Hobart machine will do him fine. They are a quality unit & can be purchased cheaper sometimes with store coupons such as at Tractor Supply which usually runs a 10% off every few months. As you have already found...

    Yes check the point gap & make sure they are clean, then post back with results. Does the high frequency work when set to start & using dc-? Does it work when set to continuous after you scratch start it in ac? Using a foot pedal remote?

    Welcome to the forum. I am also from...

  • You mentioned changing the coil but have you changed the points & condenser also? Not likely the points but bad condensers can do weird things.

    Just to recap you have changed coils, bypassed oil switch & cleaned, checked all wiring connections everywhere you can access & looked...

    Yes you do have to apply it often, It goes on the wheel not the work.

    replied to Thumb control or foot pedal ?
    I always wondered why nobody ever made a torch with a controller like the old slot car controllers? Squeeze trigger to vary the amps.

    replied to Thumb control or foot pedal ?
    When table welding I prefer a foot control as it seems more precise & just plain easier to use. I do have two finger controls, east/west & north/south but have never been able to master them. I only use them when I absolutely have to.

    I'm sure it is just personal preference...

    replied to going to have to cut some welds
    If you can physically get in there with any size cutting disk they do work well. Make sure you use wax to keep it from clogging. They make special wax for cutting but I have heard of people using candles also. I have also heard of people using wd40 to keep it from clogging.

    replied to Should I trade?
    Since you are not using the Maxstar & the Ranger 8 will add something you don't currently have to your "fleet" of welding equipment I would trade. You say the Lincoln is in decent shape so why not.

    replied to Time for new career???
    Judging by the "tone" of your writing you are just fed up with your current situation. Not a good time to make life changing decisions. You need to look at things like this without emotion & come up with a plan, whether it be welding or something else. I've seen too many people make knee...

    replied to Time for new career???
    Reading your posts you seem to have yourself talked into it. You complain about the free time you don't have as you can't finish your jeep. Another career is probably not going to fix that. Most welders I know who work for someone do side jobs to make extra money so that tells you something right...
