    Water Cooled TIG Setup On The Truck

    Finally got around to putting together a proper set up for TIG welding aluminum on my truck. After I cooked my WP-26 last year doing a heavy aluminum job, I started gathering up water cooled stuff. Here we are, all set up, gonna go to horrible freight later and get some parts to make a cart for the new "unit"

    Miller seriously screwed themself by making the new TB DC only, I forgot how good this thing ran an aluminum TIG bead. I will be damned if I am buying a new engine drive and a Dynasty to do what this old machine does.

    Yep. I can't figure out why seeing as it's already in there.

    Maybe it was an "intern" project.

    Did I just ding Miller?

    There is another thing they left out.
    115v on the 14 pin plug.
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the hf starter require 115v?

    I need 2, 115v plugs and the 14 pin to run this setup.

    Yep, another oops but much more easily remedied with a single wire and 14-pin terminal than no AC weld output.

    Yes it does but the standard 115VAC power configuration on the HF-251D-1 is a separate household type plug/cord unless one modified the unit to incorporate the 115VAC power supply in the 14-pin as I did on mine (http://weldingweb.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=44369 post #20). Unfortunately now my HF-251D-1 couldn't be used as is on a new Trailblazer.
