120V welders at Lowes

Discussion in '<a href=http://www.lawnsite.com/buttons/jump.php?i' started by FrankenScagMachines, Mar 10, 2003.

  1. With electricity, nothings impossable. Dada just doesn't want to do it.

    That's in a single pass.

    My little one from walmart CH that says 3/16" can weld 1/4" plate no problem, just not in a single pass.

    But I gradiated to a larger one so it see's portable stuff, which is nothing.

    Mike is right on that point, Most manufacturers of welders will note only the single pass capacities, i guesstimate 3/8'' might even be possible.

    Yea I realize that... I know he probably really doesn't wanna do it Mike LOL. Thats ok the 120 might be nice if I have to "go portable" (take it somewhere else). Seems like it will be big enough for me for a while anyway. Think I'm gonna pick it up today. :)

    Go with the one that will weld the thicker metal at Lowes. At work I have 2 sets of torches, 1 plasma cutter, 1 jukebox 230 welder, 1 beauty of a miller 230 welder, 1 monster mig w/argon set up for aluminum and a Lincoln 110 w/flux core wire and that by far gets the most use. If you are not overly familiar with welding, go with the flux core wire, it is the easiest kind of welding to learn how to do.
    Good luck.

    I did get the Lincoln Pro MIg 135 and am using it with flux core right now working great. also see the thread about "new welder'.
