    Re: cleaning out my Millermatic 211 and drive motor replacement

    Here is the unit we have at my work. With the naked eye, I think I can see a teensy weensy bit of wobble if I had to guess, maybe 0.010-0.012" of run-out off the surface of the drive roll. Not like mine which has a visible, oh 0.020-0.024". (just guesstimates).



    All in all, I'm not too disappointed because the unit does work when the necessary amount of tension is applied to the rollers. I just know in the back of my mind that it could be done with much less tension if everything was true.

    Looks like I got lucky. The wobble on my 215 is probably a little less then your work unit. When dialed in correctly the C25 arc on my 215 is incredibly smooth and consistent.

    Yup, probably just "one of those things" that they invented the tension knob for anyways. Oh well, I think I'll get a HTP ProPulse 200 for my Christmas gift anyways. Might sell this one, or keep it for the 120V capability.

    To bad the demos of the Pro Pulse 200, on You Tube, are mainly from Chuckie 2009 and Mr Zila. I 'd like to see results that the machine is capable of producing from a more skilled operator.

    Yeah,

    That HTP ProPulse200 looks pretty sweet alright.

    I believe I caught sight of a new HTP ProPulse300, too, on a video clip from the Fabtech show this month.
    Peace to you all,
