Have you contacted the manufacturer of that control box? It might be a known issue.

Some switching power supplies are know to trip GFCI breakers as well. I wonder what is in that control box.

They actually do make a gas-less flux core wire for welding stainless with a mig. I do know it's incredibly expensive though. Like $20 a pound.

Legos?

It would be cool to build a tap handle out of legos. It would look kind of 8-bit if you did it right. I'm thinking like this: http://www.pbs.org/parents/supersisters/mario%20lego.jpg

I've been wanting to do this with a raspberry pi for a while. It would be around the same price and you would have a much powerful controller capable of running its own webserver.
