The Build with Blue Miller Electric promotion at Baker’s Gas and Welding offers the perfect time to pick up a brand new welder at the best price possible for a MIG, TIG, stick, or multi-process welder. One of the best choices you can make for a new TIG welder is the Miller Maxstar 150 STL that is discounted already with over $400 off the retail price (as of this writing) and offers an additional discount through the Miller rebate program. This Miller welder offers a portable and versatile machine that welds effectively on a variety of materials.
Here’s what you need to know about this welder:
Switch Between TIG and Stick Welding
Welders who need more versatility for both large and small projects will benefit from the ability to switch between stick and TIG welding on the STL 150. Miller rates its capacity as the following:
Minimum welding thickness: .020" Steel.
Maximum welding thickness: 3/16" Steel.
For a 100% duty cycle on stick, you’ll need to weld at a lower setting, such as 70 A at 22.8 VDC, 115 VAC. Welding with more power, say 100 A at 24 VDC, 115 VAC, will bump the duty cycle down to 30%. The TIG duty cycle follows a similar pattern, offering a 100% cycle for continuous welding at lower settings with a shorter cycle when welding with more power.
A Portable Stick and TIG Welder
If you need to work in multiple locations or you want the option of taking your welder with you, the Miller Maxstar 150 STL provides a shoulder strap and only weighs 13.7 lbs. Considering that most welders require a cart, this machine offers a lot for its size.
If you need to work off a generator, the LVC Line Voltage Compensation option will keep the power source steady, minimizing fluctuation while you work even if the power spikes and then drops off. This also adds to the longevity of your welder.
Safe and Versatile Welder Voltage Settings
If you need to switch between 115 and 230 VAC for your various welding projects, the 150 STL makes this particularly easy to do and especially safe, as you don’t even have to remove the welder’s cover in order to relink with the power source. In addition, if you’re stick welding, the open-circuit voltage option drops the voltage down to 12-16 VDC when the welder is not being used. That keeps your welding machine safer and more efficient while you work.
The Multi-Voltage Plug (MVP) makes it simple to switch your welder’s power source around as needed.
Get the Best Miller Welder Features in One Machine
Miller offers a range of useful features on their welders that can be found with the 150 STL. For instance, the Lift-Arc technology makes it possible to start welding with the frequency set higher than usual. In addition, Adaptive Hot Starts make it easy to start welding without the electrode sticking.
The fully functional remote control that comes with this welder is an added feature that makes it possible for welders to crater out while working. They can use a 6 pin foot or finger tip control for particularly challenging projects.
Protect Your Welder While You Work
Worried about an overload or dust killing your welding machine? Miller’s welders (like the STL 150) come with thermal overload protection while you work. Whether the machine’s duty cycle is nearing its limit or the airflow in the machine becomes blocked, this setting will turn on a light and notify you when its time to stop welding.
The fan-on-demand ensures that you have the airflow you need to keep the machine clean and effective, but it eliminates extra noise while you work. In addition, you will save on electricity as the fan only runs when needed.
Also, the fan on the STL 150 is an upgrade from what most welders typically offer, as its Wind Tunnel Technology keeps all debris away from the electrical components and PC boards.
