I have a Miller 180SD and would like to do some TIG welding on aluminum 5/16" pieces for a custom throttle linkage I'm building for my Jeep. The unit came with a WP17 torch and I think I would like to try and upgrade to a water cooled SR18. Picked the SR18 so collets etc. would interchange.1) Will the SR18 1 piece cable assembly work with the Miller 180SD cable connection? Adapters needed for this?
2) Will not be using this setup all the time, so I'd like to just run the water from a connection to a garden hose and just let it drain outside (live in a rural area). Do I need a pressure regulator for the incoming water supply to do this, or can I just adjust the flow?3) If making short welds is the 180SD capable of doing this type of fabrication?
4) Finally, would a WP26 200A torch be a better way to do this?
Thanks for any advice Big Smile Luke
