Simi Valley Hot Rods Restores Classic Dragsters with Miller's Diversion 165 TIG Welder

Print Article
Simi Valley Hot Rods added Miller's Diversion™ 165 AC/DC TIG welder to provide greater TIG welding performance and control over the aluminum, stainless steel and chrome-moly components that make up much of a car's chassis. The Diversion 165's easy setup and simple controls makes it the most advanced, user-friendly TIG machine available to motorsports welders and DIY'ers.

Dave Rifkin began wrenching on hot rods at 13. By the time he could legally drive, he worked at an Austin-Healey repair shop and bought his first welder, a Millermatic® 35. Three years later he purchased a Miller Dialarc® Stick/TIG welder. That machine is still in use at his shop 30 years later.
