A few weeks ago, my uncle Kevin said he had an engine driven stick welder for me! He said that the engine block has a hole in it; he said his brother got it 15 years ago for a project. Then, he passed away in a motorcycle accident and nothing was ever done with it.
When my uncle, cousin, and I went to a show in CT, we stopped so I could see the welder, it was on the way. It is a Lincoln weldanpower 150 with a briggs engine, the engine is completely taken apart, and the rest was just sitting on the cart with the covers off.
Since the block only holds oil, and it is cast aluminum, I am going to bring it into welding class and weld in another piece of aluminum. Since there are only 6 more days left, I called my uncle today to see if I could get at least the engine block this weekend so I could take it in and weld it. He is not sure when he is working but he said we can get it Saturday or Sunday; it is a 30 minute drive from his house, and he is 50-55 minutes away from me.
I am not sure what else it needs, other then leads. I will update you guys as I know more!
