Miller Diversion 180 TIG Welder

How many times have you thought to yourself  “I bet I could build that if I just had a welder?” Or perhaps you have wanted to install/ modify a part but didn’t because you didn’t want to hassle with taking everything to a welding shop. There are countless times where a welding unit can be helpful to own. We certainly believe this and finally stepped up to the plate with the Miller Diversion 180 TIG welder. The unit lets us weld on mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminum with material thickness ranging from .6mm to 4.8mm.

Key benefits:
Easy-to-understand operator interface.
1. Power-up
2. Select material type
3. Set material thickness range— then weld!

  • It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.
  • Inverter-based, AC/DC power source provides a more consistent welding arc while using less power.
  • Portable. Whether it’s in the shop, garage or at the race track, at 50 lb it can be taken anywhere.
  • HF start for non-contact arc starting that eliminates tungsten and material contamination.
  • Auto-Postflow protects the weld end zone and electrode by optimizing post flow time based on welding amperage.
  • Fan-On-Demand™ reduces noise and maintenance by lessening the amount of airborne contaminants pulled through the machine, while sufficiently cooling thermally protected internal components.
  • Advanced Squarewave AC provides a fast freezing weld puddle and deeper penetration.

Comes complete with:

  • Power source with primary cord
  • 50 A, 230 V plug or MVP™ plugs for 115 V power source
  • 12.5 ft (3.8 m) Weldcraft® LS17 TIG
  • torch with backcap, ceramic gas cup, 3/32 in (2.4 mm) collet and collet body, and 2% ceriated tungsten
  • RFCS-RJ45 remote foot control
  • 12 ft (3.7 m) work lead with clamp Smith® Argon regulator/flow gauge with hose
  • TIG Welding for Dummies book with content written by Miller
  • Set-up and operation DVD
  • Welding project blueprint for a machine cart/cylinder rack
