Customer Questions & Answers

CAN THIS MACHINE BE USE FOR ALUMINUM WELDING

Asked by: JUNIOR
After working in a fabrication shop that specializes in aluminum welding, this is not the machine to use. Aluminum is tricky as you need to preheat it, but if it gets too hot it will just melt. Gas shield welding is the best way.

Can I plug this into a residence dryer outlet?

Asked by: Anonymous
If it's the right plug configuration,, and the right volt / amperage capacity I don't see why not -- But don't plan on doing anything with this, anywhere inside the house, condo,, townhouse,, apartment ,, garden shed,,chicken coup ! ! ! ! -- Arc welding (stick welding) is an extremely large Fire Hazard

Could I use a 1/8 7018 electrode and a 1/8 6010 with this machine ?

Asked by: Jose
6010 can only be used with dc. 6011 is the equivilant of 6010 for ac machines. 7018 can be used and is not hard to run. 6013 7018 are basically drag rods.

I actually fabricated an entire 60' conveyor for use in road construction using just this one machine. For 1/4" steel such as angle iron you can't beat it so long as your original material is clean and ready to weld. I usually only use 7018 high tensile rod and have never had a weld break. You can't beat these tombstone buzz boxes for the price......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lincoln AC 225 I've been a welder all my life. I went into management for a period of app 28 yrs and sat on the sidelines as the younger guys did the welding. Now semi retired I found myself needing a welder. I went back to the welder I first used when I was 15 yrs old ! The Lincoln AC 225. It's 5 star. It'll do the work. And I haven't forgot how to weld ! It'll weld 7018 LH rods, 7014, 6011. And it does an excellent job. It's not a $5000 machine, but I don't need one. I highly recommend it. Knowing how to weld is not a plus: its detrimental. Much to the chagrin of some, it takes a "weldor", not a "welder" to be able to weld. You young guys out there: get 2 yrs of welding school under your belt. Get certified. You'll NEVER be out of a job ! And then get this Lincoln. In your spare time people will line up to get you to fix something for them.

Owned one of these many years ago and regret that I sold it so just bought another one. As I remember they used to include a sampling of different size rods and a plastic eye shield with their machines, but I may be wrong on that. Would be nice if they did that so a person could try the machine out before purchasing supplies. Either way, you can't go wrong with this in your shop!
