    You will likely need at least 200 amps to weld a fillet in two 1/4" plates.
    A #6 cup is pretty small for using a 3/32 tungsten and welding 1/4".
    The regulator you have may be calibrated in liters...

    Sounds good. Just an FYI, the 250psi rating is the relief valve setting. It won't be 250psi unless there is enough restriction to make it 250psi.

    Post up some pictures of your project build.

    I should do something similar to mine. The tray isn;t big enough for the 200dx. I could fit my PT185 on it, but don;t really use a cart with it.

    Very Cool! Been so long, I forgot what I won...need to go check. Either way, I am sure it will help out with race season :-)

    I may pick one up as well. I can then see how it is as compared to the stronghand one I already have.

    Glad to hear you are making a few bucks here and there to help out with the hobbies. I work with a guy who developed a fairly extensive set of build/fab plans for some personal tracked vehicles that...

    That was done years ago with robotic manipulators. Using a 3d printer is pretty mickey mouse.

    The fingertip controls require 4T operation. Arc maintains after initial trigger. The PT185 does not have a 4T mode.

    How much welding do you plan on doing?

    I'd bet you will have way more headaches with a hard plumbed system than just having local bottles.

    The only places I have ever seen hard plumbed...

    I agree. I don't really see much need for the small diameter tungsten, even though I have .040, 1/16, and 3/32. I tried teh smaller stuff, but have since just kept the 3/32 in the torch for...

    I think mine is a 22k pedal. It was purchased earlier this year. The pedal is not the one pictured (I assume that is an SSC pedal?).

    I have a 200DX as well (2011 version with pedal mounted max amp adjustment). I like it. I bought the 185 for portability, specifically for use at the race track. It is about 60% of the size of the...

    That is correct. I am not sure how other manufacturers do it, but they don;t blow the big burst of argon out every start. I'll have to take a look at work and maybe borrow a higher end regulator to...

    Only thing i wasn't impressed with is the gas pressure burst that is still there when starting an arc. I assume it is because of a "not stiff enough" supply hose that turns into a balloon when the...

    It seems to take a second to "sense" the voltage and then it seems to adjust accordingly. I assume it is a digital adjustment, either 185A for 220-240V or ~120A for 110-120V

    That machine used to not have max control available when using a foot pedal. Used to just be max of the machine was max of the pedal. That in itself really isn't much of an issue though.

    If you can't get it figure out, hire the folks that do the healthcare.gov site.
    They seem to really be on top of things.

    I ordered a 22k pedal for mine....I hope it is correct. I loaded it into the trailer for racing and never had a reason to use it at the track.
