  • I have welded on dam near anything that moves, literally thousands of cars and trucks, tractors, sometimes several a week and used trucks for welding beds, I never unhook but am mindful of direct connections....

    replied to workbench table for welding station
    I was trying to figure out simple links from the list posted in this thread. That page has a lot. The OP has good fundamentals started here but out of the hundred on that page there are about 3 or so I really like and wouldn't make much change to. I have worked on about a hundred benches, some of...

    I have neighbors and buds with machine tools, its super rare I need them. We just don't use so many old machines that were job shop built anymore and parts shopping is so much better than it was. I am a super MyGyver anyway and most of the time I got it done before they have it chucked up anyway....

    I actually have a 140 snuggled in there since the pics. The 180 sits at my vise bench, has enough cord to reach out on the floor. I really use the bench welder for about 95% of what I do, use a little stick on occasion and in nice weather out on the apron. I used the 255 for an hour or so about a month...

    I have these about as good as it gets now. Over the years fiddled with the locations and carts a little till they found their home. Really rare I move something anymore. ...

    I made up for it by using a metal chair frame along with the mower. Most of the time involved here was the front wheels,,,, turned this in to an hour project by the time I got coffee to get it done....

    replied to Pipe thawing with inverter?
    I agree there is some difference in a dead short, hence the super low duty cycle on the tranny machines. Its also for electric system safety, a number 6 ground wire wouldn't turn to red at that current range like it will at 200A or even more....

    replied to Pipe thawing with inverter?
    I didn't figure them to calculate the power needed but was curious about the sustained output, would it hurt anything within the duty cycle? I have a 150. Does it heat the unit anymore within this duty cycle on 120v vs 240? I wouldn't think so. That's all the circle around the 75 means on the...

  • It wont hurt it and better than full of dirt,,,, if it needs it. I have a AC/DC Linc, had it for decades, 1000 hours on it. Thought it would be a good thing, removed the cover and then put it right back on. It was very clean, looked new. There are places, some weld shops with dust and constant grinding...

    I have other machines, I have thawed a lot. I was just curious how the inverter would work. Something that works great is amp probe. So nice to be able to see actual current....
