Anyone Have Any Input On Thermal Arc 211?

I Had Been About To Buy A Miller 211 But Then Found The Thermal Arc Which Does Mig/Tig/Stick. For Mig Alone The TA Had Better Numbers 210 @ 20% vs 150 @ 30%. I Know It's Lift Arc Tig With Manual Gas, But It Seems To Have Great Reviews And I Could Live With Those For $1500 Shipped. but Most Reviews Don't Talk About The Quality Of Tig, JustMig.

my Phone Sucks, Disregard All The Caps

Well Get On It!

Lol That's Exactly My Problem Not Many People Seem To Use them For Tig. what's Your Opinion On The Mig Vs Miller/Lincoln?

I know, right! I will when I get into some more precision parts... probably like UCA's and LT kits.

As for MIG, I prefer my TA's to the Millers hands down. The TA's just have a ton more adjustments when compared to Millers, and I like the way they feel when welding better than Millers. Probably because I can adjust so much.
I've ran Miller 210, 211, 252, and 350P's FYI

Well shit, Guess You Just Sold Me On It, $1600 Ain't Bad For A 3 In 1 especially With All The Good Reviews, Haven't Really Found Any. If The Tig Sucks, Whatever.

Hey guys(girls) with eye contacts. how is it welding with contacts? do they tend to dry out bad or anything thing?

also anyone with laser surgery? how is it with welding? does it bother your eyes at all?



Reason iím asking is I have been wanting to get laser surgery. also Iím looking at a welding class/program as a collage 1.5-2h a way. It says it takes about 12 months to complete, and is M-F 8AM to 2:30pm.

This was done with a 25 yr old miller. Although some of the newer settings are cool, the person behind the gun still plays a big factor.

Thermal Arc stuff is nice though. My supplier really digs them. I really like the newer machines, I'll be replacing my millermatic 250 with a 252 beginning of the year. Im just a die hard blue guy

The person running the machine is the most important factor. We've got GREAT equipment at work, but almost everyone that comes in to test fails miserably. Great machines, but serious lack of skill on the operators part.

9 out of 10 "welders" cant pass a test if they can't read a chart for settings. And once you get into the high end exotic metalwork, finding people that can lay nice beads gets even harder. I've watched pipe fitters warp 2"x2" stainless square tubing on a welding test.

Very true. 95 percent of what I do at work is stainless pipe. I see some REAL sketchy tests on a regular basis

I can tell you that CS gas (mil grade crowd suppression) gets behind contacts and can damage the eyes. I'm sure that the off-gassing from welding can have the same effect. That said, if you are outdoors, using a vented hood, or any other effective means to remove the gasses (that cool little exhaust hose that sucks the fumes away) from your work area than you are less likely to develop any symptoms related to exposure.
