I bough the miller one for the little 150stl. It's a lot better than scratch start but it wasn't worth the $180 they charged. It wasn't my money but it just wasn't great.
I have more questions than answers

I looked into making something like this a while back. But the only way I could figure it is to use a pressure sensor, make it a little hardier with a puck or button and heatshrink and hook it up to an arduino back near the machine then have the arduino read the sensor and control a variable resistor hooked up to the welder via the foot pedal input. I figured it would cost at least $100 but probably closer to $150 with no guarantee it would even work just for a dodgy prototype. Coupled with the fact I don't know a thing about Arduino's I shelved the idea.
So if its up and running and working I'd say that is a steal at the price given what I think is involved in putting it together and materials and such.
