    I will. I expect parts to arrive tomorrow. I'll put some effort into the problem when I have pieces. I'm usually not one to throw money at a mystery, but I felt I needed some of the little obscure parts that can leak shielding gas for a while. The welder has been a champion. I NEED it to work well again....

    Maybe. The machine at a customer's facility is a store brand gun. It doesn't always work very well. They have a pretty bad voltage loss problem that might be the cause of most of their trouble. My new consumables are on their way from Kentucky. When they arrive, I'll dismantle the gun, and carefully...

    You don't have sons do you? I had my opportunity to prevent this. The man who borrowed it is a friend. I trust him. I made the mistake of not preventing this. I carry the fault. Loaned tools get broke. That has always been fact. I've known this many years. Now, and then I need to be reminded. I'm hoping...

    I've got new consumables ordered. I didn't order a new liner, I'm thinking maybe I should have.

    OH!

    I have a very expensive welder, my torch is well into the hundreds, the cooler cost so much, I'm embarrassed. I will not risk a problem by using automotive anti freeze. $28 anti freeze is what is recommended. I will pay the price....

    Are you sure about this? I'm asking a question, not claiming to have the answer.

    I relate this to a problem I had many years ago: My in laws had a tennis court about 60 feet of elevation above Otter Creek. They had a centrifugal 1/2 HP pump to push water to it. Pump motors would fail in...

    Wire is clean, rolls are .035 U smooth.

    I'm trying to figure out how a tip adapter gets burned up. I wonder if they tried flux core wire with no nozzle? That doesn't seem to influence feeding. They used their own roll of wire, and tank. They have a little MIG for sheet metal.

    I've bragged for years about my MillerMatic 252. It's a great welder. I'm beginning to learn I should be quiet, keep my doors locked, shoot intruders in the driveway, and not have children.

    A family friend asked my son about borrowing my MIG. Seth said yes, I didn't overrule him.

    I had a big industrial level Hobart, I failed for several months to get $100 for. I gave up, and scrapped it. AC only welders sell at Home Depot, nowhere else that I know of.

  • I guess harmonics could affect neighbor's power. I'd sure be surprised if it was in any sense significant. Your single phase transformer has only a magnetic connection to the primary line. You connect transformer secondary to 1 phase of the first motor, make it spin. Windings in the other phases become...

  • I have a used phase converter, a 7.5 I paid 400. It is for motor loads. If you want to use second hand machines, a phase converter makes sense. If buying new, buy single phase.

    Three phase power is sometimes 240 phase to phase with two phases to center tap being 120 volts, the third phase...

    If you said I'm driving 60 MPH I'm coming to a corner. Which way should I turn the wheel? We'd stand a better chance of a good answer.

    If you are TIGging AC I guess you want aluminum. Start at 120 HZ, 72% EN, 3/32 Tungsten, Pure argon @ 18 CFH, 3/32" 4943, set amps high, use the peddle....
