    Broken Everlast ?

    Why did this guy have to repair his brand new everlast? Something about a spark gap and the high frequency start?

    Re: Broken Everlast

    if you'd actually watch the vids on jodys site, you'd see that was a simple issue, prolly caused thru a drop during shipping.
    the fix was simple, open the box, and plug in a loose plug.
    thats it.

    I do watch all the vids and that wasent the issue. He said he had to adjust the spark gap. If you actualy watched that vid he cleary states how he came to that conclusion and fixed it.

    Not perfect out of the box, needed adjusting. I think it was 1980.

    Re: Broken Everlast

    The welder sent to Jody was sent from Canada for several reasons.
    1) It had the new torches that we were adding in the US but had not taken delivery on, an advance unit so to speak. Nothing different except the accessories though.
    2) It had the new style foot pedal we are adding as well.

    Jody did have to reset them. We have recently moved the location to a different location on some of these units for several reasons. The relocation however has subjected them to more movement in shipment from putting them at risk to more shock loading. The brass tab design is easy to adjust, and takes less than 5 minutes to access, adjust and reassemble. Its not a serious operational issue. Typically the points will accept a wide allowances for Gap. But the issues will only appear usually in AC if they are way off. DC seems largely unaffected by too wide of a gap. We are working on a solution and have several corrective options available that will be incorporated soon. Maybe someone remembers that the big boys had issues too with arc starting not too long ago with their units and it took a while to get resolved.

    Re: Broken Everlast

    By relocating the location to a different location, not the original location mind you, the technicians were able to locate the problem. WHICH COULD NOT BE FIXED LOCALLY

    Once the proper part was located, in a far-far-away location, the locus of said part was changed to a more local location......ie. the US of A.

    However.........the owner of said machine could not be located for comment, as he was under local anethesia (owing to his high blood pressure resulting from the said failure of said machine, and the resultant right cross to the to the technician which broke his knuckle.....which by the way, is located at the extreme end of yer arm)

    Local weather is pending

    Re: Broken Everlast

    Who said anything about it having problems Samm? We had reasons it was moved. A primary one, being we streamlined the unit, and reduced some of the weight.

    Clearly a sign of an unreliable machine. Swaddle it in new welding cable to protect whoever handles the thing, palletize it, ship it to me and you can relieve yourself of the stress of owning such heavy old junk.

    Trust me. I work for the government.

    No doubt one of the best machines Miller ever made.
    I was just talking to a pipeliner the other day, who hates Miller with a passion! Even said his kids are not allowed to say the word Miller in the house. But he did admit what a nice arc these machines have for SMAW.

    And people wonder why posts were deleted in the past? Case in point. People with no experience, making statements that they know nothing about driving the thread way off topic. Not addressing any one post or person in particular, but talk about guideline violations... People on this site have been banned for less.

    Re: Broken Everlast

    Maybe someone should read the thread not the title. I didn't ask for it to be moved. No one posted about a problem with a welder he had. It was someone non customer posting a video, of one of our customers, who was reporting on one of our welders, the second of which he was evaluating on his private site. The welder was NOT broken, and needed a very slight adjustment to the points.

    1964 Dodge Coronet (2 door), 318 V8 with points/condensor ignition, approaches a RR crossing, goes to cross the tracks, and the motor dies

    Train comes, hits the Dodge, demolishes it (the driver was able to get out before the crash)

    Dood tells the highway patrolman............tweren't nothin' wrong with the the car, the points just needed adjustment

    JSM,

    LMAO.

    Gotta admit, opening one of those "green boxes" is like opening a box of Cracker Jacks.

    You never know what kind of prize you're going to get.

    Sometimes it may be a "working welder" or it may be a "heathkit-build it yourself". Wonder how long it will take for the owners (technical) manual to "catch up" to the interior changes made?

    So Sundown, tell us just how many of those "green boxes" have you opened, and what was the ratio of "working welders" vs "heathkit-build it yourself" that you received? Were all curious to hear about the experiences of a "Professional Welder" such as yourself using these products. From your statements and comments on Everlast products, seems as though you have lots of hands on experience using them. Inquiring minds want to know.

    Re: Broken Everlast

    Well Ruger, since you asked.

    I don't have any of those "green boxes" around my shop.

    Don't need them and don't want them. I've got "Industrial Grade" tig welders in my shop that do the job for me every day, and when they don't, I've got a factory trained repair tech 50 miles away who can get me back up and running in very short order.

    Over the last 35 years, I've bought seven Blue tig welders. And, you know what. I never took one out of the box and had to "adjust the points".

    Since 1977 I've owned three different Syncrowave 250's. All were still working when I sold them. When you factor in the initial cost of the machine, routine maintenance (really pretty minimal), and what I sold the machines for (resale value), it's cost me less than $150/yr to have a quality 310A tig machine in my shop.

    But, I'm glad you asked.

    BTW: I don't buy/eat Cracker Jack's either, but I know there's a prize in the box.

    Re: Broken Everlast

    Rugar I'm a professional weldor. I've run, owned the best Lincoln and Miller have ever made. I just bought an Everlast PowerArc 200, only reason I bought it was for the hot start option. For $350.00 I thought it was worth a try. I have to say this PowerArc 200 will run circles around my Dynasty 300 with SMAW, and run right there with any of my shorthoods or Redfaces.
    Just my opinion!
