Thanks, I was hoping it might say "we supply foot pedals" ...

Foot Pedal Connector (7 pin, 15.5mm) Google mistranslates it as 'remote control connection'

Sorry for not mentioning it, it's an AC/DC TIG welder.

Needs a (?two?)) potentiometer(s) in it as well as a switch, to control welding current.
They don't seem to actually supply footpedals for this model, so I am a little wary about buying it - I really prefer using a footpedal when TIG welding.
There is a circuit diagram at

but it's for a different model, and it doesn't work on the similar but very much cheaper DC "digi" machine I already have.

Surely the existing electrode holder will have a button the control the strike etc. It will not have potentiometers. If its connection via the 7 pin socket is replaced with a foot switch the you will have what you need! ATB Richard

I want continuous foot control of the welding current - an on/off switch is not enough here, you need a potentiometer for that (or two, the second to adjust maximum current).
(you also need an on/off switch, as well)
Continuous control of current makes welding a lot easier, also you can do things like pump the footpedal to get a pulse effect, whose timing is controlled by you. There are other advantages too.
Maybe it's just the way I was taught, but I really like continuous footpedal control.
