New fabrication toys!

A few days ago I picked up my new welding machine. I was holding out for the new Dynasty 280 but ended up weighing my options and going with the Dynasty 200DX. I'm starting a mobile welding gig on my days off from my regular job and the portability of the 200DX and the ability to run it off of my Trailblazer were big reasons as to why I went with the 200. The fact that it was about $1600 less than the new 280DX was a big plus as well.

Being that this is JeepForum I know pictures are a must so here they are.





Here is the torch I went with. For mobile applications the foot control is a bit cumbersome. I decided to go with a new CK finger control for out of position welding.

Nice piece of kit you've got there, congratulations, of course now we need pics of some of your work. A tig is on my wish list, but for now when I feel the need to dip in a puddle I break out the oxy/acetylene torches, my poor mans tig.

I started the "show off your welds" thread. I have some older pictures of my work when I got into welding. As for newer stuff, I'll try to get some soon!

Trailblazers are awesome welders. I know a number of the welders around me own them and dont have any problems. My father inlaw has 3 of them 2 are older and finally wore out different parts probably will take them and make 1 good machine.

At least you'll be in good company!

Here was my first shot with the new hand control and no pulse.



This machine is pretty incredible. The PPS (pulses per second) is fully adjustable and the main pulsing amps as well as background pulsing amps are fully adjustable. I can't wait to see what I can do with this new TIG.

I'm happy with the trailblazer. I got a killer deal on it. The original plan was to use it so I didn't have to wire 220 to the garage..... Well I ended up doing that today because a nice, almost silent welding operation is fantastic.

Here is one more with the pulse. I was rushing through these to show my dad how the new machine works. He stopped by to see it.

Millers and macs, this dudes got it going on!

Pretty impressive. Maybe it does not need to be said but, the razors are welded at the sharp end, the infinite edge is .000000" at the middle of the weld.

Thanks man, I appreciate it. I've never tried it before so I figured it would be a good test for the Dynasty. You know, to see if it deserved the hype. Haha
