    I did turn the output as low s it would go to see how low it goes.

    The readout goes down to 2 amps..

    It's not quiet, but it's not too oud.

    I did see one of your videos where you comment on...

    I did get three 3/32" tungstens for the original 26 torch as I only have 3/32" collets for it. I'm going to try it with the switch and low speed pulse to, "pace" myself with the pulse and see how...

    I just used some short pieces so far. I have to bend them and cut them to make sure they are going to be solid. Once the welds start looking presentable, I can try a bike frame. For now, it's only...

    Welding these tubes doesn't seem too bad. Thinner tubes are suppose to be more difficult.

    The 0.035" TIG rod is quite a bit thinner than the 1/16" brazing rod I'm used to feeding.

    It seems to be working alright.

    I had heard that they were quarter turn fittings, but I see now after watching some videos closely, that it looks like quite a few turn farther.

    Dinse connector fit

    I got my Power i-TIG 200T going.

    The negative dinse connector in the machine seems to have, "normal" fit and everything snugs up in it at around a quarter turn and locks in.

    The positive dinse...

    Thank you.

    I had seen some specs for some simplified machines and some functions would only work in 4T mode.

    I didn't see it mentioned in the manual if a certain mode had to be used for certain...

    Thank you. That's why I asked, because I didn't remember the details and they may have been from an older unit. I just noticed that some of the details seemed to be missing, but I'll see if i can...

    PowerARC 161STH pulse and other features

    I think it was this machine that somebody from Everlast posted some specs that are not in the manual.

    If I remember correctly (and I may not) there is a preset pre-flow of 0.5 sec, there is a...

    I bought a heavy duty cast bronze / brass work clamp, like the one that comes with the 210 EXT and will replace the stinger with it.

    I don't have it yet, but the way I understand it is, it detects the electrical field as soon as the welding current starts, so I don't think it relies on high frequency, but it detects the electrical...

    Stinger and work clamp wire gauge?

    I have a Power Arc i-TIG 200T.

    I have no plans to stick weld with it and will only TIG weld.

    Doesn't anybody what gauge the stinger and work clamp cables are?

    I think I'll get another work...

    Great. So I take it the X-Mode works whenever the power begins an arc?

    The 3 is for brazing.

    The 6 is supposed to be for gas welding and cutting,...
