The welder that I use does have a crank handle that would allow you to adjust
the current while the coil is running. I have never used it that way
however. I set the current on the welder where I want it, turn the power on
and slowly crank up the variac. I like to keep my hands on the controls. If
I want a different power level, I turn the variac down and then adjust the
welder. If you could find a welder with fixed but selectable taps at a good
price, I would buy it.
