    Yea James I see that you can do that also. I just have to get the momentary switch for my machine. Just haven't had the need. But with the current projects I may need it but the 350P sorta dug into the budget. I weld on so many thicknesses in so many situations I think that the controller I have is the best compromise but not in every situation. I may get me a new pedal someday even

    they sell them for about $125 i think. seems like arc-zone had them. but the $ is a guess. i can check.
    it seems like making one would be easy enough to do. i have heard they are a nice option for situations the foot control is not so good in. i just play in my shop so buying one is likely out. if i ever make any $$ with my lil shop i just may have to look a little closer at one. but for you guys paying the bills its a good investment from what i have heard.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

    FusionKing and Fun4now,
    I looked at arc-zone, I didn't see that "button"? I was talking to a guy that his friend made his aluminum truck rack. Welds were BEAUTIFUL!!! But all he knows, that after he laid his bead, he went over it with a "button" like you guys are talking about. I'd REALLY like to find out about this.
    Any more help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!!!!!!
    I have a Dynasty 200 and a MM251

    cyberweld is also a good place to order from. i have used them a few times with excellent results. fast service and tracking #'s in your e-mail.

    it seems like a lot of $$ for a simple push button switch to me ?? i don't see why its so much??

    i made some thing smiler for my plasma cutter out of a $5 car horn button. i needed a bigger button so it could be a step on foot control. but the long and short of it is, if it was a varied control like the foot control i can see the potomiter needing to be the right thing. but this is just a on/off button, all it dose is create a short in a low amp low volt control circuit. so why so much ??

    Thanks James,
    feel dumb for asking, but I thought it would be hooked up to the torch like a slide switch (instead of the foot pedal)????

    it will be attached to the torch. i just made a foot peddle one for my plasma to make funky cuts easy-er. some torches come with a built in button others its an add on. i'll look for a better pic or example.

    I went to the LWS and got a real flat one that had 2 wires (they said it was for a plasma cutter) and then went to the hardware store and got 50 ft of "lamp cord". I then wired them altogether and hooked it onto the foot control plug at the welder end so I have both foot or hand at the same time. I just flip the switches so it is remote contact but standard amp control not remote so it's whatever the machine is set on.
    Most of the momentary tig switches you see for sale are for newer style welders and won't work on the old ones....you gotta make them cause they didn't have them! Unless you wanna chop off the 14 pin plug but I wouldn't recommend it.
    The reasons the ones you see for sale are so high for like the Dynasty is because you are buying the button and the extension cord and the 14 pin plug and that stuff is good quality welder grade stuff. Just like the set-up for fingertip controller just a little cheaper and simpler.
