I am a long time lurker in this group with a possibly odd connection.
I picked up a Miller Thunderbolt 225 AC/DC Arc welder at a flea
market. It came with a heli-arc setup that has the hose, regulator and
electrode holder. The unit has a large 'lug' on the hose that aparently
connectes under the plug-in for the stick electrode holder. Does anyone
have experience with this type of setup? How usable is it? Is there
any way to regulate the current to the electrode, such as a foot pedal
that can connect in-line?
I am new to welding and hope to do some steel tubing and auto-body.
Tubing will be between 1/8" wall and 1/4" wall and the autobody will be
20ga and automotive structural.
Any help is appreciated.
