Got some new welding toys

I have been wanting the handheld pendant for stick welding for years. I found this deal for both the tig set up and stick set up.

Now to go play with them

The little square box is a hand pendant. The round piece plugs into the welder.

When I am in a man lift welding, I don't have to yell at someone to turn the welder up or down as needed.

The foot pedal is just one less wire to have to deal with.

Wireless Remote !!

I don`t know about your neck of the woods around here the failure rate is pretty high .

Then it seems employees like to mix and match taking time to get things back to talking again.

I've had a miller wireless foot pedal for over a year. I absolutely love having it. I've had zero problems out of it.

Self inflicted damage is not a warranty repair !!

Like anything new if it fails in use no doubt it would be replaced .

I just love when Customers think running a fork into there 2 month old Dynasty 350 Tig runner should some how be a warranty issue !!!

Never said we tried to get warranty ! We just asked to get them fixed and they told us they can't fix them. We had them for a couple of years and they had been dropped and never broke. Eventually the screen broke and now they are paper weights.
