Nearly free welding setup guides

I just ordered replacements for my worn out TIG setup calculator:
http://www.millerwelds.com/resources/tools/#calculators
They are nifty and almost free.

I've recommended those many times, they are great for those of us who don't weld frequently enough to have everything memorized.

Yeah, they're a very good deal, very handy to have around. 3 calculator slides for $4 total, s/h included. Sucha deal!

They beat me to it - and it's only 386Kb, downloads in a flash. And Hey! I have enough machine to get some 98% Argon/2% O2 and play with Spray Transfer!
But at first glance it doesn't translate for you, they need to do a re-write eventually... My Challenger doesn't have meters - Voltage is in steps, and the wire speed dial is just "0-10".
(Yes, one of these days I'll end up with a Big Blue Air-Pak or some such monster, but by the time you load up all the crap you have to carry with it to do real work you need a dedicated Welding Truck or a two-axle trailer with lots of bin space to mount it on. An Enclosed two-axle trailer if you want to keep the stuff from growing legs.)
If I didn't just get a Klein Clamp-Amp that has a 400A DC Amps setting, I'd be totally screwed - but now I can put the Ammeter on the ground lead, pop the hood and clip the Fluke 23-III to the output leads for Voltage, and see what's up.
I'll still have to guess a bit at the wire speed, unless someone has a nifty little Inches Per Minute speedometer for cheap...
Ooooh! I just found a new definition for Beautiful Glorious Overkill: (WARNING: get a bucket before clicking - you could drown in drool.) http://www.millerwelds.com/products/enginedriven/big_blue_700_duo_pro/
The 20 KW 3-Ph at 240V (Deluxe) and 380V (Int'l Deluxe) *AND* 4 KW 120/240V 1-Ph generator output at the same time (and while welding) is just icing on the cake.

I used SWMBO's iPad this morning to get TIG settings for my latest project. It worked a treat!

I am always glad that I used their calculator before I turned on the power switch and opened the argon valve.
