    Just set it where it starts good....I believe I had mine set fairly high tho.

    BTW...They don't make a hand controller that will work for that machine unless it's one of those giant-@$$ed heavy old school ones. It's either the foot pedal or a button that you rig up yourself. All you have to do is interupt 2 of the 3 wires on the remote contactor switch. That machine is as analog as it gets but then you prolly know that. Fancy new transistorized stuff just don't work on that big monster.
    But you are right it is so darn big and heavy it would be too much for most people

    yeah i think it is set to 70 or 80. i have been pulse welding instead of just running a bead and i have a roll cage coming up and its gonna be some fun working that pedal inside the car.....

    Saw the title "OLD TIG WELDERS" clicked on it thinking it was a thread referring to my generation. I'll have another cup, Please.

    Yep...as long as you hold it down it's at the amps the dial says and if you let off it stops.
    There is no less than a dozen boat factories using that method and it produces excellent results.
    I believe Sundowner III on this board has promoted this method on anodized aluminum as well.
    When you get to the end of a bead you just flutter the button. I have been meaning to set my Dynasty up like this but just never got around to it but the owners manual goes into great deal about how it is programmed to be used in this manner. This isn't just something I am doing to use an old machine... I've used Syncrowaves and others set up like this. It is a fast method of laying down dimes. And this old machine does it well

    on the dyn you don't have to shut off between clicks. you can set it to be at 50 then click down to crater fill say 30 then click back up to 50 and so on as many times as you want switching between the amp settings. really neat setup. i been planing on setting one up for my TA-185 but been more concerned with just working on my bead performance as it is with the foot control.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. james@newyorkmetalart.com
