    Default Miller HF-251 question

    There is a REALLY good deal on one of these units and I was reading the manual for it, and noticed that it can be connected to machines 'without' the 5 or 14 pin receptical by just hooking the welding leads to the HF unit. My welder does not have remote amperage control since its an old shunt style machine, but if I hook the welder up to the HF box can i use the HF boxes remote amperage control since all the weld current goes through this box?

    I planned on upgrading welders, but if this would work and i can score it for this price i'd be happy keeping my machine.

    Default You can

    You can use it on your machine but will not have remote control of the amps. It will simply turn the hf on and off. When using DC it will start the arc but not stop it. On AC it will start and stop the arc------ted
