    Question TIG Handbook??

    I have been pointing newbies to the Miller TIG Handbook PDF in the Resources /Improve your Skills section.... for many many years... it is an excellent basic TIG reference..

    Now it seems to be MIA

    Has it been taken down or just moved??

    You're correct, the resource has been taken down. We have worked with our training department to provide a new, comprehensive TIG resource - https://www.millerwelds.com/resources/tools/. Although it is no longer free, it contains more detail than the handbook about TIG welding. As always, you can find a variety of other free resources for improving your skills on our resource page - http://www.millerwelds.com/resources...ur-skills/tig/ We apologize for the inconvenience.

    I do hope that Miller reconsiders that decision to take down and replace it with a for sale item.... the Miller TIG Handbook has helped to educate and inform countless thousands of TIG welders and Developed a strong loyal user base that equate and identify Miller with the very best TIG equipment available...

    IMHO It would seem shortsighted to trade lifetime brand identification and loyalty for short term small profit

    whatever revenue is given up by posting these "Free" resources.. is repaid many times over in the long term...

    as in the past a printed hardcopy should be available for purchase..

    Please Repost the PDF of the Miller TIG Handbook..

    My 2cents worth..

    Default TIG Handbook??

    Could someone post the handbook as an attachment in this forum if possible or if not, at another location?

    I am hoping that Miller management sees this as a misstep and posts the handbook back up as it had so usefully been for all these years..

    If I understand the priorities here…

    “Training Materials” are intended to help create a better informed and skilled user base, create user awareness of the Miller line of welders and their virtues..
    And in doing so Sell Welders….

    The TIG Handbook was taken down and replaced with a 29.00 Dollar, 66 page color illustrated spiral bound “Gas Tungsten Arc Welding - Welding Publication”, While probably very cool, may have already severely limited it’s available audience just by virtue of the price point and distribution method

    Is the goal to sell books or is it promote the attributes of Miller TIG equipment in a constructive manner and educate a loyal user base ..??
