Miller Dynasty 200

Ok, I think I've made up my mind and I'm going to get the miller dynasty 200 TIG, i plan on building a water cooler. I've seen mixed things about it, on the miller site they have that weld calculator and it sayd i need 225-300amps for 1/4" steel welding, but then other people say that they weld that stuff all the time

I want it to weld sheet metal, aluminum and steel all probably less than 1/4" So this should work great right?!!
Anyone have one and can help me?

Thanks
Brendan

Well,

I'm certain you have done your homework, and I also considered the 200 Dynasty as well, but I purchased a Lincoln Pro Tig 185 and absolutely love it! I can weld up to 3/16" and it does a great job-

Dynasty

That is a great piece of equipment and should do you fine for years..as far as doing 1/4 in plate that may be pushing it a bit but with practice you can push a machine to its max and do a good job..

Just my take..

thanks for the replies, i also looked at the lincoln unit but it only goes down to 5 amps where the miller goes to 1 amp, i haven't tig welded before but i figure thats better, and they are about the same price anyways,

i can always weld thicker stuff with our bigger millermatic mig

Thanks
Brendan
