I may be ordering a new TIG welder tomorrow. Tonight I had the problem with welding the Featherlite aluminum trailer, the closest I could get the trailer and the closest I could get my welder (couldn't get the forklift started, no time to play forklift mechanic too) was barely enough to reach what needed welded. The foot pedal has shorter cables than the ground or torch so I had to have my son stand on the pedal so I could try to weld the trailer. This didn't work too well, one end of the torch was hitting the tire while trying to position and weld.
Anyway... this would have been a perfect opportunity for an easier to move welder. I'm considering ordering a syncrowave 250DX welder only tomorrow, I already have all the other parts on my old Miller and a full TIG runner isn't in my budget. But, for less than $100 more than the syncrowave 250DX I could get a Dynasty 200DX. I have no plans of using a syncrowave 250DX to its full power, most of my welding is in less than 100A but I would like to be able to weld 1/4". Syncrowave has a few more amps, Dynasty is more portable, is the Dynasty less than the Syncrowave in any other way? I could get a Dynasty now and a used Syncrowave 250 if I need to do heavier work later on. Just thought I could get a used Syncrowave cheaper than a used Dynasty 200DX.
Syncrowave or Dynasty, that is the question! :-)
