    Cruzier said go to school to be a tech and then you can get the tech manuals.

    Which tech manuals are you after? No one you contact is going to give them to you, as we spend literally $$ thousands of dollars going to upgrader courses all over the country.

    I don't even bother with the tech manuals on everything but the Axcess. Those should be left to a real tech. As quite complicated, definately wouldn't be allowed to give you the manuals on those anyways. The rest are a breeze, why bother with manuals.?

    Preventative maint on the Dimensions/Deltawelds must include dielectric gease on all molex connectors, including front boards, interconnection and hall. Then you really don't have many problems with them. CP's are basically dodes and fan motor issues.

    The only other problems would be control cables to the feeders.

    Like I mentioned though, no amount of contact with Miller will get you these manuals unless your a warranty repair shop and have passed all the tests to CST.

    it has to do with documentation because now we are calibrating all the meters and only the tech manuals have the calibration procedures in them I need to have a digital copy of all the procedures I know some say that they cannot be calibrated but I need a digital copy and I would like a digital copy as most of mine are showing their age and some of the elec diagrams are getting real hard to read

    Calibration blank certs I can email to you, though you will need a Lincoln 750 perferable load bank (as it has live load switching), or a Miller version, a independantly calibrated Fluke volt and amp meters

    Wiring diagrams are available in the owners manuals, or on the inner side plate of the machines

    Really no explanation how to do the Cals though, on most machines. The Axcess are self calibrated

    Dimensions either have a couple screws for the amp and volt, newer ones only have 2

    451/651 are done on the gage

    I have the setup

    miller 395b load bank
    600amp current shunt
    fluke 175 certified meter

    my need for manuals is a paper trail mainly because the tech manuals have the written calibration procedure in them

    Axcess is self calibrateable with a down loaded program to a sim card. Can't calibrate a mig only machine as it won't go to data plate spec, and the Dimension is simple with a coupe of screws on the voltage board. Most Lincolns, you'll need a laptop.

    Few machines are calibrateable anyways. I load them to data plate specs and compare the meters to my flukes. Calibrations, other than critical subarc are a waste of time anyways

    There are no written procedures for any machine other than the tech units. So, I don't know where you got your information from. Tech manuals should remain in the hands of techs. Perhaps contact your Miller Rep in this case
