  • Hobart battery welder.

    I saw this item earlier on in the month and was wondering when the "Elite welders in the forum" would pass comments on it's rather important standing in todays new tools. Since Miller is owned by Hobart, I would expect to see a Miller model out soon, look at this..........................

      Not a new concept...But very cool!!!!

      Guys
      while a very cool item, it is not a new concept... I believe that Century had a unit that ran off of 2 car batteries about 15 years ago... and I was shown the trick about 35years ago..(by someone who had used it for a while) using a Hobart feeder that was purchased used.. Batteries make the best and purest DC... and thus excellent arc characteristics.... it is awfully nice to see this concept in such a compact and well integrated package.. and using the latest battery technology.. what was old is new again!!!
      thanks

        Lincoln Electric was making motors for electric cars in 1898.

        Things are new when we forget they've already been done. Maybe in 10 years, Sears will be peddling a blade with two handles that planes wood as you pull it toward you and it will be called the "Z-Smoother" or something like that. Could be as big as the twin cutter.
