I should post some photo's of my addition of a contactor controller to mine. It allows the gun to turn the machine power on and off so the tip isn't always hot. It works well when running it from MIG machines or TIG machines since both have contactor relays inside that are designed to talk to a remote switch.
Most stick machines lack a contactor control.
The tricky bit was positioning the microswitch inside.

The Readywelder was about $450, the connectors about $20, and the microswitch was about $2.
