View Full Version : Otc Minitig Inverter For Sale
02-10-2006, 06:14 PM
Hey all, I have an OTC MiniTig 155 for sale. Hate to let it go, but it's time. Here is one pic of it, anyone interested can email me at email@example.com . I am looking to get $1200.00 OBO. It has pulsing features and is 110/220. Nice stable arc, even at low amps. I only have about 80 hours on it, if that much. Mostly used for mold repair work.
Thanks for your interest.

I still have this welder for sale if anyone is interested. I need to sell it and will take $1000.00 OBO.

I'm not familiar with this welder. What will it do that a Miller Maxstar 150 STH won't do? I've heard of OTC, but don't know their product line.
07-20-2006, 11:24 AM
The difference is that the Miller has 4 pre set pulse "programs", the OTC is set by the user. The post flow on the OTC is also set by the user. If I am not mistaken, the OTC does not have a lift arc feature. What I can do is scan the info page and post a reply later tonight.

Here are the pics I promised. They are not too good, but if anyone wants them, I can email them the good ones. This resizing doesn't do the justice.

Is the Tigmate 150 on this page the same unit?
07-21-2006, 10:43 PM
No. This is just a dc machine. It welds much better than the tigmate. The tigmate is the same as the Econotig. I had one of those too, but this really blows e doors off of the other two.

Hi Orphan58 A.K.A. Tony!:waving:
You have an excellent machine for sale and if I had the cash on hand now I'd take it off your hands ASAP!!!:blob2:
This Japanese power source is as good or better than the Miller equivalent or any top of the line North American power source of equal output rating, and as good or better than the Fronius or Kemppi equivalent amperage models of European & Scandanavian fame!!!:eek: :cool2:
The price you're asking is very reasonable so, anyone who's interested -TAKE ADVANTAGE of it because, you will NOT be disappointed!!!:cool:
Btw, they do have sales & service support here in the USA so, look up "OTC Daihen" or http://www.daihen-usa.com/ online and, if you need to ask someone who's non-biased that has a bit more exposure to this manufacturer of welding equipment, just ask Ed Craig over @ http://www.weldreality.com/
Excellent Power source with technology & electronics way ahead of their time when one compares to other manufacturers except for maybe PowCon/Cyclomatic when they first came out but, also very expensive when new so, take ADVANTAGE of the price & RELIABILITY on this one folks!!!:cool2: :waving:

Thanks forthe kind words SSBN727. This is great that someone else knows that this machine is great. I really don't want to sell it, but I need the cash. I will work with anyone on the board that wishes to buy it. If not, I am going to have to put it on EBay.

So, in the opinion of those in the know here, would this unit be better than the TIG portion of the Super160 machine listed on this page?
The Super160 is an ac/dc machine...what capabilities would I give up with the Minitig vs the Super160? All I am really familiar with is MIG...
07-23-2006, 12:20 AM
You want AC to TIG aluminum. Notice I said "want," not "need." But it is a VERY BIG WANT.
07-23-2006, 05:13 AM
The Super 160 is also a plasma cutter and you will not be able to plasma cut with the OTC "MiniTig" power source... However. if one is just going to use the OTC power source for stainless steels and not any AC aluminum welding then, the OTC power source will outperform just about all of your equivalent power sources already out in any market on this planet!!! At the same token, if one is looking for more versatility then, purchase the "Super 160' which is basically two power sources for the price of one!!!

Q; for ssbn 727 - Which (name) class of boat is the ssbn
727? I think i saw a sister boat at Mare Island once - the 716 Houston ? (or was the 716 a fast attack? )
07-23-2006, 01:53 PM
SSBN 727 is the USS Michigan, now a guided-missile boat after the last refit, because of treaty limitations, I think, but maybe just because of the sheer usefulness of the guided-missile configuration in the littoral warfares of our generation.
The Houston is a fast-attack.
In general (under the current naming conventions,) STATES are boomers and CITIES are attacks.

I believe MAC702 answered the questions that you posted for ME so, the only things that I'll add to his answer regarding the new configuration of "Ohio" class, "Trident" type "Super Boomers" is that they are indeed re-designed and re-fitted with Guided missile tubes in the location where the SLBM's (Submarine Launched Ballistic Missiles) were originally found in this Trident/Ohio class of "Super Boomer"...:laugh:
In these tubes are "Tomahawk" Guided Cruise Missiles which take up less space and enables the USN (United States Navy) to "Pack in more WhupAss into this type of Can" if you get me drift! I'm not going to get anymore specific because after all - we're at war but, referring back to MAC702's comment about the possibility of it's (SSGN) conception with respect to treaty limitations... I know that this concept has nothing to do with any treaty limitations whatsoever!:nono:
MAC702 is correct with respect of his other possibility that the SSGN platform was concieved and developed into fruition because of it's sheer usefulness in "Littoral" waters... So Boys & Girls! What does the USN mean when they're referring to "Littoral" waters? " A coastal region, close to the shores where the depths of the sea floor are more than likely shallow compared to operating off any continental shelf, and near enough to reach the enemy with "a Whole lot of Precision WhupAss"!!!:blob2:
The "SSGN" concept originated when the USN started using Attack Submarines such as the later modified "688"/Los Angeles class boats to launch Tomahawk's off the coasts of different area's in the middle east region during the first Gulf war towards Iraq and in the most recent Operation Iraqi Freedom. These newer refits using only a small percentage of the Ohio Class Trident platforms are a continuing evolution in the concept, and no -we still have more than enough of a strategic deterrance capability in the use of the remaining Trident II SLBM's loaded "Super Boomers" that are used for their original intent - that is!!!:cool2:
There is another equally important aspect to this redesign and wholesale change in the uses of this once very proud instrument of Strategic Deterrance... While I will not get into any specific details regarding the new capabilities - even though some of the specifics are unfortunately already being posted online, there are the enhanced capabilities added to the SSGN's with respect to the USN's Special Warfare arm and with that I'll end the comment on that note!:rolleyes: :nono:
BTW, "Current conventions" designate the names of states to the "Virginia" Class of the newest, most current type of fast attack submarine with the exception of the USS Jimmy Carter which is named after the former President of the United States of America who was a "Submariner" himself !!! There are currently no successor to the Ohio class/ Trident type "Super Boomer" SSBN (Sub Ship Ballistic Nuclear even though it's affectionately called a "BOAT") which is also sometimes alternately referred to as an "FBM" which stands for "Fleet Ballistic Nuclear". Let's also not forget to mention the successor or rather the working prototypes that lead to the "Virginia" Class fast attack submarines: The "SeaWolf" Class fast attack Submarines...
"LOOSE LIPS SINK SHIPS"!!!:nono:
SSBN727 - at least that's what it was designated when we were building her!:laugh::jester: :waving:

Is that you welding in the lower left corner? =)
07-24-2006, 03:07 AM
Hola El Vergon!:waving:
Nope! But I did help build that boat originally back in the late seventies - early eighties. This pic was sent to me by a friend of mine that did some work on the SSGN conversion of the USS Ohio which is the Boat in the picture.:cool2: The person that you see welding below the front (under the right side torpedo hatches)(Which is the proper nomanclature for the "Front" & "Right" side of the boat MAC702 or anybody for that matter? Btw, I already know but, I want to see if anybody else remembers!) of the boat - is'nt actually welding on the sub itself... It looks like the welding is being performed on a component that is separate from the hull of the boat itself. :) :cool:
The conversions were done in two locations but, you'll have to guess where because:
"LOOSE LIPS SINK SHIPS!!!":nono: :jester: :laugh:

Shows how long I've been out of the loop. When I was in, the Seawolf was just getting started. I knew there were no more Ohios in the works, but the new Virginia class is news to me; thanks for the update.
I served aboard the USS Alexandria (SSN 757) as well as the USS Tennessee (SSBN 734.)
