  • Millermatic 212 with auto set

    I was going thru the Manuel's on Miller web site and notice that they have posted a Millermatic 212 with auto set and variable voltage. I haven't seen one for sell yet. Maybe they will be out soon. It will be interesting to hear the reviews.

    I could of test drove one a while back but was out of town at the time. The one feature that's interesting, is the Aluminum autoset process.

      Scott, I only see mention of the Auto-set function for steel.

      Looking at the electrical schematic, it looks like there is a good possiblity that the unit might have a softer style arc like the MM 251/252.
      MigMaster 250- Smooth arc with a good touch of softness to it. Good weld puddle wetout. Light spatter producer.
      Ironman 230 - Soft arc with a touch of agressiveness to it. Very good weld puddle wet out. Light spatter producer.

        The local Miller rep was where my info came from and it sounded like he had the machine here. He mentioned a auto aluminum setting. That would be a good thing if it worked. Not sure if I would like the 251/252 style of arc?? In fact I know I would not!! My new Lincoln has a Synergic setting that seems like it and I am not real happy about that either. Oh well I guess I can use the 250 plus, for arc I like better.

          I'am not sure about the auto set for aluminum either. On the MM 210 I had tap 4 was generally the highest tap I used for mild steel using .035 wire. I did use 4 and 5 with the spool gun and .030 4043 wire a few times. I hope the MM 212 with auto set doesn't have too soft a arc. I used my HH 210 today and was really happy with how the arc was using a small 2 lb. roll of .030 Forney wire I picked up for a $1.60. I'am still waiting to see a upgrade to the Ironman line.
