I have scrapped out another tm-500/500 and the main xformer

Mind you, the miller 330 a/bp is a fine machine, for what it was designed,
not air arc.
Thanks Doug. I have not ever seen the process.

The largest carbons that I have run were 3/8" but I have some 3/4" that I keep around for different things. I talked to I guy who says that he ran 3/4" carbons with two 750 amp lincoln welders tied together.

3/4" Carbons Might as well break out the Oxygen Lance Go for the gusto

I'd like to see YOU use the lance to wash a pad off, or make a weld groove.
