    Default wow

    Im with you guys on this one, I cant see what the target group of users would be. I like the "Aircraft Frames" in the list suggested uses .
    If a guy is building an aircraft that uses a 4130 fuselage etc, the trend has been going back to torch welding with the added complexity and steps needed to Tig the same part safely. And at 165 amps at its duty cycle I cant image much of a use repairing engine castings. So most of the time, a homebuilder commonly starts of with a set of tanks and a decent torch, needed for brazing, welding, hot forming, and aluminum work.....so what will a 165 amp basic TIG unit offer them over what they already have in the OA setup? A shop wanting to get into stainless exhaust repair will probably want a higher end unit like the Dynasty anyway. I dunno about the other markets, but I think they missed the Aviation market here. That and with all the liability...im supprized they would reccomend a machine or process like that, especially with recent trends.

    Just my thoughts from a limited market

    the answer is clear, Miller has been reading it's forums and have come up with a solution to:
    "i just bought a Dynasty 350, i'm a total noob at welding, never welded before, not arc, mig, tig, nor JB,. can you guys tell me how to use this machine?" and so on.

    either that or the marketing and R & D departments have got the primo weed and are sharing it amongst themselves
