  • 1/2" drill welding machine safe?

    Anyone know of any AC/DC 1/2" drills that are safe for use on a welding machine. I know our AC units get burned up rather quickly. I can find AC/DC grinders but no drills. Thanks. Dave

    Your running off a generator drive? Have you set engine speed using a frequency(hz) meter? You may be producing not clean enough power if you have not.

      Pretty sure he is talking about running them off the DC side of the machine.

        Milwaukee drills used to be AC/DC. Can't speak for the new ones.

            Are you trying to run it off a SA200, or?

            Unsure what you mean by running off the DC side, certainly not the output studs, cause that would be really dumb.

                I think the klinker here might be the variable speed controller that most modern drills have... they want to see AC....

                You might consider checking the fleas for some of the single speed AC/DC (BRUSH) universal motor drills like the old 6 sided SOUIX.... they are bulletproof and will be around long after we are gone...

                  There is only 10 amps of 110 Auxilary on a SA200, so your not going to run much anyways, other than a small Makita

                      way back in the day i had a plug adapter i made .i would take my electrode holder and clip it to one wire and i had a small wire clamp for the ground. i would use my black&decker grinder this way when i electrical cord wasn't handy. never had any problems with the grinder that i can think of but i never used it on a daily basis.

                      if your useing dc current is there anyway to just hook a small inverter to it to run your ac power tools? i'm not an electrician so maybe someone with more knowhow will chime in on the inverter thing.

                        Some folks run large alternators with inverters to supply power for their tools instead of using DC.

                        I'm no expert on the subject so I'll defer to those who are.
