Dear Sirs, Is it possible to adapt my 251 HF starter for use with my stick welding generator supply??.. And is it possible to attach a welding "cable sheath" (wire mesh cover") attached to a ground, or via a capacitor could attenuate or short out all the HF radiated by the cables?? Respectfully, Jack

Can it make my miler 300 pro run like a dynasty 350 when welding 16 gauge.
By Customer Service on October 28, 2013

Answer:
You can install the Miller HF-251D-1 High Frequency Arc Starter & Stabilizer 042388 on a Miller Big Blue 300 Pro.. You will have high frequency arc start but this will not turn the 300 pro into a Dynasty 350.. The 300 Pro does not have AC weld output so you will not be able to tig weld aluminum .. The 300 Pro weld output is only rated to a minimum of 20amps.. The Dynasty is rate down to 3 amps an because to this the Dynasty will be much better on thin material

do ineed a contactor to hookup to a bobcat 225g
By Customer Service on May 5, 2014

Answer:
You can install the Miller HF-251D-1 High Frequency Arc Starter & Stabilizer 042388 without a contactor however the Tig Torch will be "Hot" all of the time. The proper way to do this installation would be to use the Miller 041696 Secondary Contactor Kit in conjunction with the Miller HF-251D-1 High Frequency Arc Starter By doing this the Tig Torch will only be active "Hot" when welding

Please help me to understand this machine. Could this high frequency arc starter be used to convert a mig welder to a tig welder for welding aluminum?
By Customer Service on September 27, 2013

Answer:
The Miller HF-251D-1 cannot convert your MIG welder into a TIG welder. If you are just looking to weld aluminum with your MIG welder, a spoolgun is what you would be looking for, however you need to be sure your machine can accept or can be adapted to accept a spoolgun.

Do i need anything else with this to hook it up to my shopmate 300?
By Customer Service on March 26, 2014

Answer:
To hook the Miller HF-251D-1 High Frequency Arc Starter & Stabilizer 042388 to your Shopmate 300 you will need weld cables to connect the unit to the Shopmates weld output connections, a ground cable, a tig torch with tig block ,a short length of gas hose to connect the tig block to the gas solenoid, a gas flow regulator and hose, and a foot pedal or hand control .. Remember the Shopmate has DC weld output only and will not weld Aluminum

Will this machine work with my Hobart stickmate? It's the AC / DC 235
By Customer Service on December 18, 2013

Answer:
The Miller HF-251D-1 High Frequency Arc Starter & Stabilizer 042388 can be installed on your Hobart Stickmate..You will also need the Miller 041969 secondary contactor kit..Quite frankly this is not the way to go for to do tig welding.. The cost of the HF-251 is $1036.00 and the cost of the Contactor Kit is $477.00 for a total of $1513.00..You can purchase a Miller Diversion 165 for $1561.50.. This is a complete dedicated tig welder which can do steel, stainless and aluminum and do it better than you Stickmate with the HF box

By Brad from missouri on April 6, 2014
can i hook it to a G-204 Hobart portable welder


By Customer Service on April 10, 2014

Answer:
The Hobart G-204 is a DC weld output welding generator. You can install the Miller HF-251D-1 High Frequency Arc Starter & Stabilizer 042388 on this unit .How ever you would not get the full capabilities from the Arc Starter .Also the since the G-204 produces DC weld current only you cannot tig weld aluminum with it even with the Arc Starter which is the main reason the Arc Starter is used
