  • Saved from the scrap-man!

    I was going to strip it down and do some more work on the dents etc. but I decided it may not be a good idea because of the age of the switches/electronics. It is working now and I didn't want to screw it up I did work on some of the dents but I didn't want to bang on it.

    I punked out and painted it with a brush.


    It'll look cool all dressed out

    She really was going to be scrapped for the copper

        Your Dudeness, looking good! Wish it was in my shop...

        While your cleaning up the floor with Photoshop you might want to move the gas can with photoshop too !! I try to keep my gas and welding stuff on opposite ends of the property but then I'm not living out on the edge either

        Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

        It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

          Yeah, I always like to weld with a gas can right next to me

          Does look nice - brush on epoxy?

              Don't be stupid. That's where I keep my drinking water

              I usually use Devoe industrial paint. I think it's called Bar-Ox. It's pretty cheap for oil paint and when thinned shoots pretty good if you want to spray something.

              I need to spruce up my torch cooler now...

              I'm going to get the bottle and some other stuff today. I'm putting it off because I spent a bunch of money on a plasma cutter and the red-headed war department is gonna be pissed!

                nice score/save man... the copper wound ones are supposed to weld smoother IIRC. I've got an older copper crackerbox Lincoln that needs to be tested/painted etc (what are you doing next tuesday? LOL)

                looks great man, now cough up some pics of it in use

                  I'd like to try different TIG machines myself. I've only TIG welded on older Squarewave Syncrowave units and my unit. I've never had the oppertunity to try anything else. I'd love to try the same material/filler wire on a bunch of different machines.

                    I had a chance to get one of these in single phase when I got mine:

                    I got the lincoln because it went down to 2 amps instead of the millers 5. Like I know ANYTHING about welders. I don't think the miller had post flow either.

                          No stickers yet? Looks good. What goes in the hole in the upper left of the control pan?

                            At work I have a Miller Sincrowave 300. At home I have a Thermalarc 185. The TA is much better on aluminum than the SW. Steel thay are the same. I really like my TA. Best shop purchace in a long time. Well, Gorton 9-J for $700 was the best, but it's hard to love a welder like that sweet old mill. --Doozer

                              Rockrat: Looks like another outlet (see one below it), probably 220v.
