    250ex modification

    I wanted to be able to power a water cooled with out plugging into a separate outlet so I added a plug to the back of the machine

    Dang that's a great idea. My PowerMig 256 has a 110v plug on the back but I've only used it a couple times... However, this would be awesome on my Thermal Arc tig machine when I get ready to put a cooler on it.
    Best regards,

    Good call on that second plug style- better than having exposed terminals. How did you power it, inside the machine?
