ironhorse, if you are going to be using the 200 DX heavy, a water cooled gun might be a good investment, if nothing else to keep your hand cool, you don't need a cooler, just a water inlet, 'garden hose' and an outlet, 'garden hose' to an outside or inside drain, if nothing else, back to a 55 or 5 gal drum to water your daiseys. Any way, you will probably need the 100 amp breaker for the Synchro 250, I have both the 250 and the 200 DX and I feel the DX when set up right is just about as powerful as the 250. It is also a lot easier to drag the 200DX around on location, albight the 250 looks impressive in your shop for customer appeal, the 200DX will getterdone. Hope this helps, man with too much stuff, PaulMore Spark Today Please

I have a red 275 tig that I normally use on a 50a circuit. So far, the 50a circuit has done all of my steel stick and tig. The only time I have tripped it was when I tried to tig some big aluminum. What I did for that situation was rig up an extension cord of building wire that comes directly off a 100a breaker in the service entrance panel. The wire never goes into the house structure and just comes around the corner of the house so I can reach it with a normal ext cord. Believe I've only used it twice in four years. Definitely not code but then its only a temporary installation. Guess I could install a proper outlet box on the side of the panel and then plug my cords into that.

I have the cord to the Synchro 250 wired directly to the 100 amp breaker in the box. I tried using 2 40's but they kept tripping, the specs call for a 100 amp breaker for the 250. It is a power hog by all means....and weighs in at over 500lbs with the Coolrunner.More Spark Today Please
