    Thanks Syncro,

    I like the machine too, Im just a bit frustrated with the way the whole situtation has unfurled. PMO! Anyway, I'll waste my gas and my time to get my machine that they made fixed. Ihave had a serious run of machinery bad luck lately. I hope it has com eto an and as I am abou tready to take delivery of a CNC router table.. Man! I really dont need for it to be breaking down "right out of the box" so to say.


    Another quetion: If you set pulse to say 8PPS and your amps to 100 to weld 0.125" and only step on the peddle to put out say 75 amps, are you getting full pulse or a proportionate amount?

    I find that if i am not hard on the pedal, the pulses are "soft" and not until im Hard on the pedal does it seem to really light up the room. If any of htat makes sence... does you rmachine respond commensurately?
    Will it weld? I loooove electricity!

    Hi,

    From what I have seen on my machine, the pulse function is time-based and is independent of amperage settings. That said, it will certainly seem softer at a lower amperage setting. Nonetheless, the speed of pulse will remain where you set it. So AFAIK, the pulse has no "size" but rather only a "periodic nature", if you catch my drift.

    Take my advice and get that machine fixed! You are going to love it. I traded my wonderful old 250/250 Idelarc Lincoln TIG/Stick in on my Syncrowave 200 and have never looked back, although the Lincoln was a real old trooper. It did everything well except AC aluminum. The SW 200 is pretty good all around.

    Hope you get it fixed pronto~!

    Wink My problem and Millers sloution

    Hey Sign::::::: If you call Miller welding and tell them the deal about the gas... I can't gaurntee anything, but I'll bet they'll take care of you. I opened a small welding shop a year and a half ago, and they have went above and beyond what I have ever expected them to, as a large co.

    I had a 375 that I had a few isues with for the first year and never was really satisfied with after a year and a half Miller made my dealer a deal on a 625 for me to trade my 375 in on a 625 that I could not pass up.

    I'm a customer for life! No matter what! they take care of there customers!


    I spent 4 hrs on the phone one day with mike in there 251 division working out a problem that I thought was a problem with the machine. Come to find out it was the way I set the machine up to begin with.

    I hope you call them and let them know your not happy because they are a customer service driven co.

    OH I totaly understand I spent 9,789.00 dollars to buy miller machines to get this buissness started and I was so disappointed in the 375.

    They made it right though.
