    Was the welder left plugged into power when you last left it? Could it be a power surge fatality?

  • There is a way to post images from other hosted sites. I use dropbox and box and post full size (no 2mb size limit) images directly here.

    I show my pics using:

  • Good to know it was a very close second. I really like the viewing area of the Jackson, but that is mainly because I've never stopped using the #10 fixed shade big gold lenses. I've been considering trying a magnifier too. Do you know if the Jackson can accept a magnifier? Never used one, but long ago...

  • Wow, sounds like the shops up there care to help their customers make the right choices. The only shop our LWS has around here is for their gas cylinders. No way they'll let a customer strike an arc in there. I've always wished they'd let someone do just what you did and try a hood or a welder before...

    Exactly what he said.

    The MM252 has that too after a delay with trigger held and not welding it enters jog mode till you let trigger go.

    It is a feature that helps you feed wire out the end of your gun faster like when you want to put on a new roll of wire you don't have to...

  • So did you just buy the Optrel e684, the Jackson BH3, the Viking, and the Optrel 2.5 Vegaview to do your shootout?

    I've often thought it would be awesome to try BEFORE you buy, but that is not something any LWS around here is going to let you do.
    How did you get a hold of each of...

    Unfortunately, it is the high current part that drives part cost up. So in this instance even if you were able to source some individual parts, they would more than likely not be cheap and then you'd still have to devise the mechanical linkage and other bits.

    Designs like this with high...

    Something like this..

    That one is an audio taper pot, but you could find the same basic design in linear.

    My old 76' Chevy had one as the adjustment lever for the air conditioner hot and cold.

    Wow those are a lot.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the pedal just basically adjusting something like a potentiometer?
    I couldn't imagine that box containing anything but passive components?

    replied to Welding Table
    I find letting things cool before moving on helps. So after tacking things in place apply a short weld and then move to the opposite end of project piece to let the area near that weld cool down before welding near it again.

    I've also see people bolt down their table top to the bottom frame...

    Can you post a side by side pic of your new Bernard next to the M25?

    What gauge steel plate did you make the drawers, side cover and top shelf with?

    Any noticeable drawer flex when you load it up with tools?

    I wasn't aware that Bernard guns could be used on the MM252... Nice to know I don't only have to use the M-25 style from the OEM.

    Just looking up the Bernards on Cyberweld... which one of these were you using day after day year after year at your work?

    So your welding procedures require the 5/8 nozzle for dual shield mig?
    Having never seen a procedure I find it interesting they would be that specific.

    So is it correct to assume 1/2" nozzles are just for short circuit mig and 5/8" nozzles are just for Dual shield mig?...

    I just realized you meant shielding gas while using flux core wire. That is a process I've never tried... actually I personally don't even know anyone around here who knows how to do it. I shouldn't have anything requiring more than 1/2" for the most part. If it were thicker I'd probably just...

    I didn't think about running flux core. Sort of been spoiled using C25 and not having to use a chipping hammer. When I still had my MM140C, all I ever ran on it was flux core. But with the tiny MM140C mig gun I always wished I had an adapter to use instead of the nozzle for flux core since the nozzle...

    Sorry to dig up the dead, but I've been searching for better details on the nozzles and while this thread has some details it was far from covering it all.

    I'm looking for info on both the nozzle stick out differences and the orifice diameters (I'm guessing the opening at the end of the...

  • That is interesting about not running completely empty. I've never heard of that with shielding gases. I've certainly emptied a many oxy/acetylene tanks and never thought twice about it.
