Has anyone used both the Miller Dynasty 200DX and the Lincoln Invertec V205-T, or does anyone have more detailed knowledge about them than found on the web?
Both have the features I want - AC & DC TIG, stick, portable, up to200A, pulser, wave controls and the ability to run off of 120V at reduced current. I'll be doing stick fabrication and repair, a little aluminum and stainless TIG up to 1/4 inch, and some aluminum and stainless down to 20 ga. Versatility is important.
I've been able to download the Miller manual and get a good idea of the details of the controls on that machine, but details on the Lincoln are scarce. I downloaded their sales info from the Lincoln web site but there aren't too many details there.
Both machines seem quite close, with the Lincoln having a better duty cycle and the Miller a lower minimum current setting. These differences aren't too big and I'd like to know if there are any other important differences I don't know about. They are both available for about $2,200, so the price difference is small.
I'd be grateful to hear about experiences with these machnines.
