    Sooo, your not tig welding. Ok cool.
    If I was a hobby welder and Purchased a hobby welder ( with no pedal) , I would spend the $250 on a pedal.
    Too expensive, find a cheaper hobby.

    i was being sarcastic. ive actually bought many pedals, sometimes just to have a spare. point being that is the cheapest thing you can buy in the welding game

    I want to mod an old wah-wah pedal we have laying around. If I tried to emulate Hendrix playing Voodoo Child, how do you think the weld would come out?

    Your pics don't allow me to zoom in on them. Did you put a remote contactor switch in there too?
    Here's a photo, taken after wiring the components. The microswitch activates the contactor, as soon as the pedal lever moves. The goal was to make a pedal by the simplest and cheapest means, while maintaining functionality and dependability. Achieved... it works every time I use it.

    There are no solenoids in this pedal.

    I'm still trying to figure out why the WIRELESS pedal costs So much.

    Id love one but coud never justify the price. I wonder if SSC or another manufacturer will ever come out with a version.

    Oh, I see, that is a groove pulley type guide mounted to the pot. Clever.
