  • You should not hesitate. The 210 classmig is the real workhorse of the small hobby main t shop and would want one dedicated it even if I had every other machine ever made. In fact auto home hobby it might be the only machine you ever need.

    replied to Different kind of problem?
    Normally pops are not caused by too much but too little, it starves and tries to burn back. The larger the tip the more fuel it needs,. Damaged tip seats can be another cause as well as o rings on handles but mostly,,,,,, too little fuel and starving....

    I wasnt strong enough to punk bolts and carry heavy belts with bolt bags and being a welder didnt really have to a lot. But some of those places prolly still got some tight finger prints on them....

    Something sounded different

    I had a walk in, the customer was a retired guy from big outfit, maybe an engineer but had a busted plow frame on a truck. I could grind the old weld off really well but it was up in there and I push it back in place with a jack and the owner sat thru this,,, when I struck an arc, 1/8 lo hi on overhead...

    replied to How do I drill bed-frames?
    I throw it out, dont stock it or try not to let it get mixed in with other steel. Its just a problem and next thing a guy wants to drill a hole for a fix or add and it doesnt work and only thing it does is ruin a bit. ...

  • I bet they are just fine. Good if a guy has the use, great for a plant or tank contractor etc where heavy rod and arc gouge is needed. They would be 2x if they were cc/cv. Good in heavy equipment shop. Kind of problematic to resell....

    I wiggle some too. Also say use 030 next time and find out where it is as high as it will go. You wont burn a hole in that plate, that machine cant make too much with that size wire.

    With 3 settings can get it perfect in the sense there is no "blind spot" on that unit and it only has a 5 speed. There is no reason to make it more adjustable with 030 C25. I only have used it marginally with other wire size.
    I bring this up on the Hobart forum for a reason that...

    replied to Wanna buy a welder?
    So I was asked,,, how you like the 180. I have a really old one and got 1000 hrs on it.. I have ran a few other machines and tested some. I am a career welder but in the grand scheme of things dont know anything about it. Not really,,, I know there is volts and amps and the wire is the amps but get...

    Wanna buy a welder?

    I been getting a few questions about which welder. I found out everyone doesnt take my advice littoral or word for word, some of it in general and some go way beyond my expatations and do better than I ever thought of. My cousin ask me about welders, has a 2 car in the burbs, mows his own lawn, got...

  • Hopefully someone comes along with a manual, The guess is late 50's early 60's and may be able to figure it out from the different engine models, seems there were a bunch of them. That would look great with a little paint, be tempted to see how it ran before I headed too deep....

  • Dale, you are a poster child for a second machine. Get another bottle to have for it and as a spare and nothing is as easy as 023 in a 140 and larger wire in a larger machine. Its such a deal I have 4 of them, one alum, 140 w 023, 180 030 and a 255 035 and one of the reasons for the bigger one is simply...

    I had a couple guys set up a job a while back, I watch them do the first and said,, oh no and change the setup so it could be welded 1 bead vs a bunch of packs with the feeder. I stop when I got to but really neat and fussy about tacks, leave myself in good spots etc....

    0k, back to waiting a few. They make a lot of flavors of 6010. There might be something better than 6011. I know they been using it on light sheet a long time. It's about the lowest current and it freezes fast.

  • Those 2 machines are in way different classes. The big one is 4x the power pf a 125. That little genset has its place but its not really suited to run most welders from AC. In fact its a poor way to do it and some investment in a real circuit or 2 is well worth it.
