Yea the whole shebang is 200 but. I contacted them via the "send a message" because I have an unlisted welder. I don't know about the whole eBay thing as they could be doing a transition for all I know.

I think it's because I listed one link (www.tigbutton.com), but the correct page that has the shopping cart feature is www.tigcontrol.com. The CK amptrols are nearly $200 as well, so this one isn't too far out in left field. It is 10x better however. This coming from someone who owns two CK amptrols.

Yes, it's clear NO ONE read my clearly marked [EDIT] where I pointed to the correct website. Sadly, I edited before anyone replied, so it wasn't hidden. ExNail even quoted the edited version with the correct link... :lol:

No there isn't, because it is not a production model. For the time being, you'll have to contact them.

It would be nice to hear some of the other reports back as well. I've been looking at several versions of the thumb controls and there almost all in that price range.
I have more questions than answers

Stupid thumb control I have at work was about $120, and it shows. I set the machine wide open so the power I want to use is on one sweep of the thumb, but that doesn't work for heavy aluminum, and I'm dialing it like an old rotary phone and shaking the torch in the process.
I want this.
I have to convince work I need this, in order to get it. I'm not spending that money for something I can only use at work. (I have no workshop at home).
