Great review Jim. I know what model I want next, now. I wonder when the next batch with the cooler outlet and proper torch package are due in the US?
If the welder has PFC it will be a lot more tolerant of phase issues. Is your phase converter static or rotary? You can also add some PFC caps to clean up your home made 3ph.
