an HF251D1 arc starter with a TIG torch. The welder does not have remote control, and by all
accounts a footpedal (or equivalent) current control is nice to have.
Miller apparently offered a 14 pin remote as an option on the welder, but it was never common
and hasn't been available for some years now. Much Google searching reveals considerable interest
in adding a remote control to Miller Legends, but no indication of how to do it (nor any hint
why it can't/shouldn't/won'twork) be done emerges. The welder manual shows a schematic complete
with component values, but without knowledge of how both the welder and the remote control are
intended to work it's not trivial to duplicate the functions of the board.
I've been unable to find aftermarket remotes for the Miller Legend, though units do exist for
larger Miller and Lincolnmachines. I inquired of one vendor and was rebuffed with surprising
speed, saying simply they don't have the part. It's hard to believe the Legend is all that
Does anybody know what the impediment is?
