It seems everything HTP has a huge backorder. I know they make quality stuff and I am not saying it is going to break but if it takes them two months to get a new customer a machine how long do you figure it takes them to fix one? I was considering purchasing a 221 with water cooler but now am looking at blue. The backorder has me uneasy.

I just bought a (thru my work) a miller 350 dynasty, holy cow does that thing weld nice.

I have many, many yrs of welding alum,ss,crs and this thing is so much easier to weld with compared to even the cheap inverter machines.

Its hard to explain when welding alum with it, but it doesnt seem to have to warm the alum up as much to get it to melt. If that makes any sense.

I can grab a peice of .375 alum turn the amps to 220 and weld all day with outo having to stand on the peddle to get the puddle started.

I know they are alot of money (9k) but really worth it.

The 350 is on my short list. Getting ready to build a cooler for my wc torch. Are you running a sharpened tungsten with a/c set higher then 60hz? That will allow you to focus the arc/heat much better (along with more en on the ballance as long as you are clearing the oxide) thus decreasing puddling time. Welding with an inverter is awesome but can be a little more tricky do to all of the extra settings. The 350 is nice because you can set the en/ep power independently. This also could be why it puddles quicker. Congrats on the purchase.
