Re: (added to try list) home made tig welder
OK, lets hope I don't look like a total ass by asking this but....
from the diagram, it just looks like a completed circuit that runs the torch right? With the torch being the negative and the ground the positive. So would it be possible to say, for example, use a stick welder to do the same thing? I have a 240V unit in the garage that I rarely use, now that I've been using MIG. What if I ran the same style of setup using the stick welder instead of the alt? And used the sewing pedal in the positive, right between the welding unit and the ground? I could adjust the output of the welder to one of the settings and just control it via the pedal? I have absolutely NO experience with TIG, it just sounds like a cool project, especially for header work [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Any thoughts???
