    Default airco ac welder

    I have an airco ac heliarc high frequency welder. I am told it is made by miller and looks like the 320 or 330 model.can it be converted to dc also to tig weld steel?

    Default Airco Tig

    You can tell very quickly by the serial number if Miller built it but I don't recall AC only machines of the 330ABP vintage even though Miller did build AC only Syncrowaves. While you could add the rectifier and stabilizer from common scrapped machines, the work involved and the fact that nice AC/DC 330ABP's are available on the used market reasonably might make that option more attractive to you. weldersales

    After looking at a picture of one, I don't think Miller or Lincoln made it. Alot of firms used the "Heliarc" name. ESAB ended up with it

    Maybe its a true Airco, P&H, or even possibly an old ESAB

    Well thats easy, just look in owners manuals, and pull up a Bluestar 2, it'll have the 2E listed there for your serial # as well.
