    Default Dialarc hf

    DIALARC HF with water cooler ... can I tig aluminum with this machine and if so how thick? Also, can I use my 12vs suitcase with this machine? Thanks :-)

    Yes you can do aluminum...

    For thickness figure 1 amp per thousandth of an inch without preheat... about 1/4 inch it being a 250 amp machine... thicker with some preheat..

    Yes you can use a 12VS... being voltage sensing you can use it with a drooper like the dialarc...

    here is the manual for the Dialarc HF

    and for the 12vs

    Thanks for the quick reply H80N!!! So by drooper, I'm guessing the machine sucks, lol. I'm getting the dialarc for $500. I already own a few suitcases. ...

    NOooooo.... no suck... Dialarc HF is a decent machine..

    Drooper refers to the type of power supply... (typically TIG and Stick)

    it characteristicly will have a higher open circuit voltage that will "Droop" to a lower voltage under load... that is a CC constant current supply..

    nothing the matter with that model machine

    as it turns out that style of supply needs a voltage sensing wire feeder to lay a decent bead with wire...

    and you have one in the 12vs... so you are in luck..

    a typical MIG supply is CV constant voltage...
