    John what went wrong with your v205? I have one and although it works fine it's getting on a bit so buying a parts machine might be a good idea for me.

    I sent it to smp for repair,they brought it back from the dead but could not cure an e12 power fault,they had a lorch 220 pro up for sale so I did a deal and they allowed me a fair bit on my faulty v205,they will break it for spares

    Ah, fair play. You never know when a spares machine would come in handy.

    Hi there,thanks for your interest,I wanted to know the age of my machine which matt has now given me,He explained how upslope and downslope work as a percentage but I still can't get it as I am used to the 205 which is just a time in seconds.I have no Idea what gas post flow time correction is and I cannot get the user specific menùe c2 to work so I can use my superlex on a pedal without having to have a pin jumped plug in the front to avoid the machine saying I am using the wrong torch.Who can I get a new air filter from,regards John.

    Both up and down slope have 2 displays iirc % and Seconds.
    Post flow again shows you both % and seconds. I just set it in seconds and it just works. (Perhaps I should time it to be sure it’s not telling me lies.)
    Don’t know about the menu mine doesn’t work that way. Just link out the pin and be done with it.
    I’m sure Matt will have a Part no for the filter and information on who your local lorch dealer is.

    Thanks for thst,I have a six months warranty with the machine so I want to make sure everything is working,leaving a jumpered plug in is a work around ,best that it all works,I have part numbers I just need a dealer that can post to me at a good price

    Right if I remember correctly, as I have a HandyTig200, not a T220 but have used one a little bit:

    On your T220 Control Pro you should have two digital displays?

    When you set your tungsten diameter the T220 automatically selects some of the settings for you. As you increase or decrease the amps these settings alter automatically.

    When you increase your post flow gas it appears as a percentage because the machine has worked out a figure for you, say 7 seconds and set that as a percentage of 100%. So if you set 115% that should be around 8 seconds and so on.

    The reason I mention the two digital displays is the post flow appears as percentage in one window and time in the other.

    It should also be the same for the upslope and down slope.

    In regards to the machine thinking you have got a water cooled torch, My lorch does the same. You have to have a torch switch plugged into the front of the machine. Very easy to buy the correct plug and make a jumper.

    I will look up how to get to the user specific menu when I’m in front of a computer later. I seem to recall you have to switch the machine off, hold down a button and switch the machine back on.

    it actually shows you the seconds in the other display
    It’s not that complicated you don’t have to work it out as a %

    Not sure if wellington welding would do lorch or not. They are out your way.

    The only background menus mine has is by pressing and holding the arrow key then press the save.

    Nah there is a user specific manual too. It changes a couple of non welding related settings. One being recognising if you have a water cooled torch connected.

    Not on the tweco there isn’t
    You can connect any torch or pedal to it
    The lorch is different
