  • Wanting To Pick It Back Up

    Hello all from Mississippi.....Old guy here that's a member of BOCOF and wanting to pick welding back up. I took a year long Jr. college votech welding class back in 76-77. Got certified in stick, gas, mig and tig welding. I never did pursue a welding job and instead continued school academically. Nuff' said bout that.

    This might be the wrong forum ...BUT...I've inherited two Miller welders. One a 220 AC cracker box that was my father in laws. You cant read the model on it any longer. All I can tell you about it there is a hand crank on the top of it to raise and lower the amperage. The other a Miller Bobcat 225G with an Onan engine that belonged to my next door neighbor. His daughters gave it me when he passed away. It runs, generates and will burn a rod. The 225g had been sitting quite some time with out being run. I got it running this past weekend, changed the oil and tested it.

    I would like to get my hand back at welding and hopefully retrieve some of the things I learned 40+ years ago. I've been reading here and other forums hope you all will be patient with me.

    We love Millers here. Welcome.

    No idea what BOCOF is except for the Bougainville Copper Mine in Papua New Guinea.
