High is for standing on a ladder and low is for lying under .
I’m not good on ladders. So I’ll keep it on the “ low “ setting. Thanks Dave

@Eugen even if you end up scraping the internals, the case would be really cool to display!

There are two connections for the stinger plug. One for high and one for low. The amps on the scale on the front of the machine may read the same but the voltage will be different. Higher voltage on the high scale. :peace: Harry
