good article but .. pretty short... Methinks that the subject warrents a lot more depth... ( a book would be the ticket)

Like anything else, the more you are interested in something, the more you want to learn about it. This in turn continues to feed the interest. Personally I feel the more we here at Miller can keep you informed and interested about welding; the better it is for the both of us.
I'm very interested in reading all your input.John Swartz

Have to agree with all posters. My two Wheat pennies is that the owners manual is common knowledge poor at best and I've read it multiple times. It does an outstanding job at safety orientation but is bluntly piss poor if you're learning pulsing. Forget any advanced operations, just forget it. Learn it yourself on the internet.Wheat Stalker

I think a book based on the Dynasty series that took into account every single function, and went into depth with the cause and effect of that functions entire range would be sufficient for starters. Then go into detail on common techiques of using each function. By doing that and diccussing the effect on material types and thicknesses, it would be quite lengthy.
Something like..."Getting the most out of your inverter tig machine"
I bet it would take at least a year to write.
Then a class/seminar thing might work but it would just be nice to get something into print that could be thrown into the truck at all times or in the shop depending on where the machine was.
The "dummy" book was great..it layed a groundwork for many. I even like it. It also proved your ability to write good concise info as well. Making it fairly clear another better more technical book would be possible.
I believe you need to go to both big and small shops and pick brains on what people are doing with these machines as well and then mix that in with the intended purpose of the funtions.
I have "invented" a trick or two and I'm sure there would be some others out there I could use eveyday as well.
The newsletter thing you guys send out could be something that had newer techniques as well when you run across them. Right now everything I get like that seems to be more geared towards selling new machines IMO.
I wouldn't be too keen on paying for a seminar only to find out it was a waste of time tho in this economy. Unless it was cheap enuff. maybe more of a forum based get together?? With Miller bringing stuff to work with??

A book like described above that would also include a quick reference guide.
I would alos be interested in a hands on training seminar.

I agree with Most of what Fusionking says.... with the exception of it taking a year..... Maybe..... If we think outside of the box... we could speed up the process and make it more efficient.... having the first draft posted online as a pdf... where we can all look it over, proofread, add info etc. If Miller were to assign a technical writer/editor to integrate the input and info from the engineers in Appleton and the users out in the field. there is an awful lot of experience and knowledge from the end users that will complement that of the engineering team to make it a more complete and comprehensive document.. I believe that the development time could be shortened considerably... and it would in effect become a living document... where there would be a collaberative effort of all involved...
At the time of completion I for one would be more than happy to pay for a bound copy...
What do you guys think?

I think that seminars held in conjunction with road show apperances would be nice for those who could attend. I really believe a book would be the best though, as it would be a part of my reference collection for ever. This book would be great for the end user (us) but could also be an important tool for industry and secondary education when used as a text book. Sign me up!!!
