    as for the power i figured you had 240V power, its the Amp's that kill ya. i had to go inverter as 30Amp breaker was the best i could hope for and that was pushing it. no syncro 200 for me.but my TA-185 is doing great on what i have to offer,so i'm happy.

    you should take a look at what size breakers/panel you have to work with when shopping for welder. don't want to spend your hole budget on welders only to find out its going to be another $2,000.oo to get the needed power to feed them. that could be a real bummer.
    if i had just jumped on the syncro when i had the $$ i would have a brand new 300# paper wait, nice looking one but still...

    i think a 252 is going to handle about any trailer your friends can throw at ya if they have heavy equipment. if they just have bike trailers and utility stuff the 212 will cover it. if not you can always throw a stick in the TIG/Stick welder. 8^))
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

My buddy was trying to tig some 1/2 inch diamond plate aluminum to some thinner aluminum i guess about 1/4 inch well he was tiging it and we could not get it to weld, the heat was on maximum, and the weld puddle just wanted to ball up and not take. has anyone run into this problem

    i had that problem with some thiner diamond plate i used a wile back. first question is was it cut with plasma ?? that can make for big problems. you have to use a flap disk and take it back about 1/8"-or more depending.
    could also be anodized so give it a good wire brushing, but plasma cutting could be the problem.
    thanks for the help

    Not to sure how it was cut but it looked cut pretty cleanly i think maybe on a bandsaw. But the metal was not perfectly clean though but our boss said the heat would burn through the dirt but im telling you the weld just balled up and wouldnt even take and what did take dang sure wasnt pretty.
