  • Scratch start tig with new 210i inverter machine?

    Scratch start tig with my new 210i inverter machine? will it work? I've got my 100% argon, 17v tig torch with valve and a power block,, so wondering if DC/EN scratch start tig will work? on this inverter machine? Thanks

    Should work, but the "hot start" feature might interfere. Perhaps Hobart expert Keith might be able to tel us. Also, in this video, he mentions inverters, as well as other good advice:

      Scratch TIG is possible with the new Stickmate units but the hot start circuit in place for stick welding could cause irregular starting issues as well as welding issues as a result of a contaminated tungsten. These are always issues that one will have to deal with when TIG welding from a stick unit that does not have an actual TIG setting.

        This is how they get you to buy a 210 Maxstar instead. You can put it into tig mode and it disables the auto hot start feature.

          It does a lot more than that...

            Yes, I'm quite familiar with the 210 Maxstar machines. I've ran them quite a bit.
