    Foot Pedal for HF Titanium Unlimited 200

    Can I add a foot pedal to the Titanium Unlimited 200 TIG welder from Harbor Freight?

    If so, what part number do I need? The Vulcan pedal they sell has a different connector than the spot in the front of the machine.

    Wow! It looks as if that welder was designed as a MIG and Fux Core machine with TIG capability thrown in at the last minute. It can TIG weld but it wouldn't be the most fun you ever had!

    It seem when you try to do multi purpose you don't do as good with either

    It is DC set it and go. Do you adjust a oxy-acetylene torch on the fly constantly ? You don't have to with tig either. It isn't as convenient but works quite well actually.

    You set it right once and then you weld. Same thing here. Certainly don't need remote amperage to weld many steel hobbiest type projects.

    Klutch cut rate multipurpose welders are the same way. You can tig weld with them but you just have to get the heat correct and then just go. For a beginner it can even be easier sometimes.

    Indeed, Jack of all trades is a master of none. However, that is only true of lower end machines, higher end machines however are an exception to that rule. There are plenty of machines that could do all three pretty well.

    If you want a multi process machine with foot pedal capability, you need to buy the Omnipro 220. You will still need to buy the foot pedal separately. The titanium line is a more budget oriented option with less features.

    Can I change this to NOT be scratch start? Can I get a torch with a thumb control or something. For a welding process that mandates you don't touch the workpiece it's kinda stupid to start the machine by touching the workpiece...

    Nope. The whole process is started through the lift arc sequence.

    It isn't scratch start. If it was scratch start you would know the difference real quick. Your not welding when your touching. It doesn't fire UNTIL you are not touching.
    If it isn't setup for remote and you want remote you will need a different machine. Same for hi frequency so you don't have to touch/lift to start.

    Trade in for new machine with a pedal and hi freq if you want to have those features/capabilities.
