    Hi Mark,
    I would be extremely happy to go 'through' my 210ext and hopefully 'narrow it down' to a few components. If that doesn't work for whatever reason, your used 210ext sounds like it's my best...

    Dead old '2 knob' 240 volt only 210EXT

    Hi,
    I haven't used my tig machine 210EXT in a couple of years. When I attempted to, I could not strike an arc. The high frequency works well, but it won't strike an arc. I checked gas, and purged...

    Never mind, I see that the 220 volt cooler clearly has the yellow w/ green stripe going to the case (ground).

    Hi,
    I have one of the older (plain 220 volt) 210EXT. For the 220 volt wires coming out of the back of the welder, is the 110 volt lines the white and black wires and the yellow with green stripe...

    I've gotten much better getting the rod bent around the pipe. I ended up using 140 amps, it worked better than 80 amps. The advice about keeping pressure on the end of the filler rod that pretty much...

    I use the 1/8" rod to space the joints of the pipe. When I tack the pipe together, it closes up and it's very difficult to get the rod back out (I file one side of the rod so I twist it to remove)....

    Ah, that may be it. I feel it 'notch' every once in a while, but I'm concentrating on the torch mostly. I wish I had more material to practice on. Also I don't really get to see what's behind the...

    tig root 2G lay wire technique?

    I have the hardest time with the lay wire technique. The 1/8" er70s-6 wire 'beads' up and I have huge gaps. Once in a while I will get a decent root, but a lot of times even then, there will be a gap...

    Shoot, they sent me the wrong one. I got it one day after he sent it to me. The older 210EXT have a different plug that the foot pedal and switch plug into. I noticed that switches are cheap, but...
  10. I got one, but I sent it back because I traded...

    I got one, but I sent it back because I traded the air cooled torch for a water cooled one (and some money). I called up sales and they are going to GIVE me one.
    That's great!
    It's always nice to...
  11. Thanks for the info, I wouldn't like it if I...

    Thanks for the info, I wouldn't like it if I bought something that I didn't need. Now I can justify getting a switch, and soon a gas cooled torch for my tig machine.
  12. Couldn't I just buy a switch to put on my...

    Couldn't I just buy a switch to put on my existing water cooled torch? I don't think I need the adjust ability wheel (as opposed to on/off switch) since I can can program the 210EXT to ramp up, and...
  13. 2T and 4T (210 EXT) do I have to have a torch with switch or can I also use foot peda

    I want to do some pipe welding, but it is difficult (if somebody has some ides, let me know!) to get under them while also using the foot pedal. I know (if and when) I do tig welding for pipe I will...

    I finally am getting some good results. It's because I had the amperage too high. It seems to be working well with around 67-69 amps with the 6010.
  15. The plates are starting at 3/8" and go up to...

    The plates are starting at 3/8" and go up to 1/2". They have a combined angle of 70 or 75 degrees. The plates are apart 1/8". I'm grinding the lands to about 1/8" each.
    Maybe I'm going too hot....
  16. 3G 6010 full penetration welds, I can't do, and I'm running out of plate!

    I'm taking welding at school. My teacher has shown me how to weld vertical w/6010, but I still can't get the hang of it. I know that I have to have that 'snorkel' or 'echo' sound-I think I know that...
  17. What settings for 210EXT? There are so many options! I'm trying to use 6011, 1/8" in.

    Hi,
    I'm sort of starting to get the hang of 6010 at school and was hoping to duplicate (at least somewhat) the results I'm getting at school with my 210EXT. I'm got the arc force set at about 60%,...
  18. Hello from California! New 210EXT PowerTIG owner!

    Hi,
    I just received my PowerTIG 210EXT a couple of weeks ago, and I'd like to get as much information about using it as possible. I don't have any experience, other than currently taking a...
