    That is a possibility!!!
    I would also be interested as I plan on getting one in the coming months (sooner if I get this fair sized aluminum job).

    Sorry guys...
    Been on the road again the last 3 weeks.

    The serial numbers of the new style Dynasty 200s are LJ280222L and later.

    Happy shopping!

    Thanks Andy!
    Now if this guy would commit to this large project I'll be heading to my LWS pronto!!!

    October 24, 2008 - Suited for portable applications, Dynasty® 200 AC/DC TIG/Stick and Maxstar® 200 DC TIG/Stick Power Sources feature Blue Lightning(TM) technology, which provides reliable high-frequency arc starts over input range of 1-200 A. Operator enters chosen tungsten size from 0.020-0.125 in., and Blue Lightning sets optimal starting parameters. In addition, Dynasty 200 features advanced AC waveforms to optimize arc characteristics for various applications and operator preferences.

    From 8/4/2008, post #28:

    "The HF starting appears to be one of the areas which the new version will address. Previously there was a single default start setting used erroneously by many for all different kinds of tungsten type and size, but which was intended for 3/32" diameter ceriated. I wouldn't say that the previous versions had problems as much as I would say the user didn't take the time to understand how to setup the machine properly--by reading the owner's manual. Sure you can just crank up the starting amperage and start duration, and it will light off just fine. The problem becomes undue wear on the tungsten. So the best compromise between consistent starts and long tungsten life becomes adjusting the parameters to only as much starting amperage and time as is necessary. For the comment about the syncro250...remember that HF is applied for both starting and continuous operation in AC mode, whereas it is only used for starting on the Dynasty model.

    The new model appears to still have the generic starting mode for 3/32 dia. tungsten, but goes further by providing pre-set start parameters based upon the user's selection of tungsten diameter: 0.020, 0.040, 1/16, 3/32, and 1/8.

    In addition, the range of starting adjustment has grown from being start amp, start time to start amp, start time, slope time, and min. amperage. So for those who hate to make adjustments other than the big dial for amperage, your best bet will be just to select the correct diameter of tungsten and that should give you good starts.

    On another note, there also appears to be the ability to select different AC waveforms. Previously, AC was defined as 'Advanced Squarewave'. This offered a lot of puddle agitation due to its nearly vertical transition between DCEP and DCEN. Some in the past complained about silicon freezing in the puddle and giving a less than shiny final bead. Now you'll be able to choose the 'Soft Squarewave' which slows down the transition rate between DCEP and DCEN and provides less silicon freezing and better wetting at the toes of the bead. For the old-school users, a true sinusoidal waveform can be selected, as well as a triangle waveform.

    All you need to do is read the owner's manual and you'll find out all you want to know. It's very simple.
