    I think the Dynasty 200 DX is a GREAT little machine that make some previously difficult welds a snap to do well.

    The portability is perfect and the option to use different input voltages is very handy.

    I haven't used it with stick electrodes yet but I'm sure it will be very good for that as well.

    I actually used the spot weld function to repair a kitchen utensil, 200 amps at .5 second and the handle is reattached!
    The problem with it is getting it set up for the thickness and type of material. I think it would be more suitable for a production type situation though.

    After you use it a few times you'll get a feel for a workable setting. For tack welding, there's a fair amount of leeway.

    I am using a 200DX machine at School (University advanced welding class) I am not able to access the advanced features. I would like to change some parameters.

    I am guessing the machine has a lock out code enabled I doubt anyone knows what the unlock code is . What can I do to get in to the advanced features to try a few adjustments to the parameters? I have a feeling someone set a random code not knowing what they did.I have tried the default reset procedure.

    What are the options?

    Question Dynasty 350

    Just got new 350... Welding 6005-T5 aluminum. 1/8 ceriated tungsten at 250amps. We are having a problem with the tungsten splitting on the arc starts. I am sure there is a setting wrong or an adjustment.. Anyone out there have a good setting to get started. Thanks a lot.

    I weld T-5 aluminum at 230 amps on the Dynasty 350's (with 4043 filler), but use 1/8" 2% Thoriated tungsten because it doesn't ball up or spit like Ceriated. Sharpen the point a bit, down to a 1/4 of the tungsten diameter and set the balance at 70%.
    Try that I think you'll like it.

    Default 200dx

    You want a remote cable with the 14 pin connection, not a 5 pin connector.

    What would happen if you had a 5 pin remote? I have a 200dx and it has 4 hours on it and has had the hf start quit twice it is in for repair and the remote they sold me only has 5 pins. I am looking for help on why this is going on. After reading this post im hoping this could be something.

    My 200dx has a 14 pin connector, but only 5 pins in the connector are used, the rest are not installed in the plug on the remote.
