My buddy / customer(he is also the one who hooked me up with my Lincoln welder and has been my mentor) brought over his big welder last night because it was flooding and would not run right.

He said it would be a few weeks before he needed it so he left his

Plus some sticks and thick material to practice with.  So once I get it fixed I'll play around with the scrap pieces.  Stick will be a bit different for me but I'm looking forward to it. :D

That's a generator too isn't it? I've got an earlier version with a 2 cylinder crank start Wisconsin. They are a nice machine.

 

I hear you got nasty weather headed your way. We'll get it Thursday. Stay safe. Good Luck, Rick

Don't do it Bill!! That could be a costly mistake!! Once you have run that a while you will have to have one.

When I worked maintenence in the factory, We had a Hobart that was simular(might have been a shade smaller, think it had a 12 or 14 hp Kohler) and used it all over the facility.

Hung all the overhead cranes with one and they are a great portable tool.

 

Have fun!!

I hope it's an easy fix for you. More time to "play." You'll like that rod too, Very forgiving and easy to work with. Enjoy.

The good thing is when he doesn't have it on site it sits in his shop, which isn't far from me so if I needed it I know he would just say to use it.  He has quite a few different welder's so this one only get's used on the big job's.  It is a pain to move around.  I currently have it sitting on the rails of my engine hoist.

I'll have to look and see if it would double as a generator, but right now the carburetor is off.  I would also be a real pain to get it up to the house.  That sucker is heavy!  We used an engine hoist to get it out of the van.

Oh it's a good generator as well as a welder.  Likely 8000 watt, and is 120/240 volt.  Being AC/DC is great, and flip of a switch for reverse polarity DC as well.  Love to have that machine!  That should be an easy fix, so you ought to have a lot of time to play with it.  You'll end up buying a 10lb box of rods!

Nice machine and an answer to your concerns if the power goes out on you. Bill, keep those rods in a dry spot until you use them. They can absorb moisture if left in a damp or humid area.

Good point Brian!! As I recall 7014 is one of most likely rods to deteriate due to moisture.
Dad used to soak it in a pail of water when he wanted to cut steel with the arc welder.

Did you figure out the flooding problem? Looks like the factory fuel pump has been replaced with an electric one... maybe too high of pressure pump?
