Mig/Tig/Arc welding with Miller Dialarc 250-AC/DC and Miller DialArc HF


Recommended Posts

A family member passed away and left me two Miller Welders.   One is a Dialarc 250 and the other is a Dialarc HF.  After they sat in my shop for a few years I decided to check them out and see exactly what I have.   Several pieces came with the units, lots of heavy welding cables for ground and stick,  a model RFC-23A foot controller, a MIC-4 Interface control box and a Weldcraft V-92 Slider TIG unit, and lots of metal rod.    I think that he was using the TIG primarily for aluminum, as I got a huge amount of aluminum rod also.  I have been using the DialARC 250 to stick weld, as I have been teaching myself,  but I'm about to begin a project making some deck railing and I think I want to use MIG to give me cleaner welds.   Will either of these units work for MIG?   What other components will I need to be able to use one of these welders for MIG or would I be better off to purchase a specific Mig unit set up for wire welding?  Which of these units would have been used for the TIG setup?     Any help will be appreciated.  Thanks!

if you have the ability to tig weld i would do that all day.  for things that you are gonna see the weld, and it is important that it looks good, i always use a tig weld.  it will take some practice to master but it produces very small clean strong welds.
