Re: Just bought a Miller 35 wire welder. in reply to JDseller, 10-30-2012 20:44:18
I borrowed an Airco Dip/Stick 160 welder to work on my truck cab.I think it was built by Miller.It came from a small stove co that quit.No circuit boards.A friend brought a circuit board into my shop.It was from an Esab welder.The switches were part of the circuit board.Both switches were broken and beyond repair.A new board would cost 700 bucks.A rip off price for a small board about 8x8 inches.The airco was old, couldnt reverse polarity to handle flux core wire.Nice welder that could stick weld AC or DC or mig.I have been welding since the mid 50s but never used DC.Tried it with the Airco.Like DC alot,Built a DC converter for my Lincoln 225.Gives me a chance to use the 6010 I collected over the years.I would not buy a welder that has a circuit board in it.Better to find an older welder with out circuit boards.

Miller didn't make the Dipstick 160 but did make other machines for Airco as did Westinghouse and probably others. Airco are the originators of MIG. Patented in 1948. Airco had some of the best equipment in the industry, especially their cutting machines. Were also big in TIG.
