    RC-300 successful Haas Kamp conversion

    I converted my welder to single phase this past weekend and it works great!

    Excellent! I love it when someone can mod a machine like that.

    One of these sold recently (untested) for $221 CAD at auction in Langley BC, complete with feeder and all gear!

    Wow, that was a heck of a deal. I really don't see anything that could go wrong inside one of these barring a direct lightning strike.

    I got mine hooked up to my Cobramatic 150-003/Prince XL tonight and practiced welding some 1/4" 3003. I am very pleased with it. I think I will take the spoolgun off the Millermatic 251 tomorrow, I don't think I will be using it for welding aluminum much anymore.

    Any idea what the output amperage is, on single phase? As a non-electrician I don't know what advantages, or disadvantages this mod has over a phase-convertor, but it appears to be much cheaper in terms of cost.
