Hi all I was an occasional poster earlier this year but due to my ISP
removing posting capabilities I've become a forced lurker.
After learning on other machines for stick and tig. My first welding
machine was a miller XMT 304CC that i had setup for Lift arc tig. I had
no complaints about the machine for what it did and how i used it (Made
nice tig welds IMO and worked great Underused the way it was)
a machine that can run up to 400 amps was being used in a single phase
40 amp 240 volt circuit with a 200 amp tig torch... Essentially it was
in retirement =)
Well eventually the lack of welding aluminum was getting to me and i
started looking to sell the machine for an AC/DC machine.
The welding store brokered a sale for me SO off went the XMT and in
came a new AC/DC machine. After pricing and investigating i have my new
one a Synchrowave 200. THe dynasty wound up being nearly double once
the accesories were factroed in compared to a Synchrowave Runner.
SO down goes the machine and i set it up and start welding.
I CANT BELEIVE I LASTED AS LONG AS I DID WITH THE XMT AND DID WELDS
THAT LOOKED EVEN 1/4 DECENT.
This welder is a Different world form the XMT the control is so procise
i can run a 1/16th of an inch puddle and control it. the ard is so much
more focused and precise and easy to use and the weldcraft wp17 SF
torch is so much more lighter and more maneuverable than the WP26 i
I learned an important lesson about using the right tool instead of the
one that works. Now its time to really start running through projects
