    Hi
    I'm in kitchener Ont. Bought My miller maxstar 150 last year to weld up some SS kitebuggies For me and my friends, haveing never Tig welded before i found it easy to self learn on. The welder was smooth and consistant i think it just made it an easy project.

    I added a pic so you can see what a kite buggy frame is.

    Cheers
    Jim

    Hey Jim, We're practically neighbors. How do you like the Maxstar? If I recall, that is an inverter machine (or am I thinking of the Dynasty...). Is it AC/DC? Nice looking work

    Hi Canoe

    We are close thats for sure, I found this link it has all the technical stuff on the 150 http://www.millerwelds.com/products/...xstar_150_stl/, It is a dc machine basically only used the Tig portion but I have tried and burned a few rods, till I decided i really didn't want the smell in my house,(garage attached) I'll only stick outside now, but the machine is as portable as it gets, and really works well better than anyother machine I've used, which isn't much, pro welder in Hamilton told me to use the Miller I trusted his advice and I am very happy, another sweet featue is 115/230 powersupply with no switching means you can tap in anywhere.

    **** now I sound like a salesman,

    get my stuff through BOC gases in waterloo they are great, always willing to answer my dumb questions, not being in the welding trade you always are asking dumb questions.

    Cheers
    Jim

    I would check the Tri-Ad newspaper. Sometimes local welding supply houses have trade-ins or know of equipment for sale. You may have a hard time locating a 220V single phase machine, as they seem to go quickly. What part of ON are you in?

    Thanks. I live in North Bay. I am not familiar with the Tri Add paper. Where do I find it?
