    Cool Syncrowave 200

    Why the Syncrowave 200 and not the Dynasty 200 DX

    -- Pulsed Tig Very nice feacher.It concentrates the heat in one area and you get a nice fused looking bead.Its like pulling the trigger on a mig gun a bunch of times while welding.like the MM 350MP.Great for over head spray welding.Hey HMW once you try tig pulsed you'll never go back to the regular way of welding.But like anything eles it has it's place.

    -- Tell the wife that you have something at the welding store that you need her to go pick up for you with her new truck.Speaking of wich hows she lik'in it so far?

    Cost is a considerable difference between the dynasty and SW, like about $1000 at least.

    They love the truck, been using about a week with no problems. checked all the bolts last night and everything is where its supposed to be so far. Havent had to adjust anything yet. The have gotten alot of comments from other contractors and clients. Did you see the pics of the springs in the mounts , like I was trying to explain awhile back. A picture really is easier sometimes. So far so good with them. Nothing cracked or loose yet and body doesnt seem to have moved any yet. I'll check it all again next month to be sure

    Ive got an aluminum seminar coming up and I will test the pulsed TIG. I have the miller matic pulser which is basically a MM210 with pulsed spool gun and it works good. But never tried TIG. Ive got the SW 180 which doesnt have it

    you may still be able to find a pulser for the SW-180 on e-bay (PC-300) if you decide you want to go that way.
    i can see the advantages of pulsed i just have not had a chance to get a handle on it as i just dont do enough TIG.
    thanks for the help

    I think I'm really more interested in the adjustable frequency. Makes nice tight beads on aluminum. I have tried that on the dynasty just never tried the pulse. I think welder will be the Dynasty, but really need to add on to shop first 30X52x12 isn't enough and the 24x24 on the house is full of vehicles and the 14x24 shed is full of 4 wheelers and lawn equipment etc. I should cover the whole yard

    LOL seems like no matter how much space we get we still need more

    i like the idea of a roof over the hole property......... i wonder what a 3 acer dome would run.shore would solve the snow shoveling the drive way problem.

    i have the synchro 200 and i love it. the pulse feature is also a new one to me when i got this machine. i have found that the pulse allows the puddle to cool ever so slightly to help with burn through adn to keep better control over the puddle. it also gives the weld bead a slight braided appearance, really cool feature. i am not sure that i can use standard tig anymore...lol i usually set mine on about 10 pps for 1/8 thru 1/4. and lower for thinner.

    The SW 200 manual from my machne tells that pulses can be set at from 0.1 PPS to 15 PPs with a default of 10 PPS. It's available only on the TIG setting.

    It pulses the weld output between a higher peak amperage and a low or background amperage. this lowers the average welding amperage so that there is a lower overall heat input and better puddle control.

    This is beneficial for out of position work since it lets the puddle cool in between the high peak amperage.

    It's also nice for work done without filler or for timing your "dips" when using filler. It's a really nice feature.

    Well that explains it, thanks. I assumed it worked the same and for the same reasons my MIG does but just wasn't sure why on TIG you needed it. Thanks again
