    x-treme 12 vs with lincoln 400 sae

    Hi all can I run x-treme 12 vs with lincoln 400 sae
    It says on the 400 sae tag that its variable ocv .

    I just got the 12 vs and a bottle of trimix
    I need to weld quite a bit of stainless and dont want to kill the 12 vs
    if the welder is not compatable.

    Steve

    A code # would be handy for me to pull up the correct spec's

    Mine is an gasoline engine driven shield arc sae-400
    serial a-701394
    code 7175

    There is no model number that I can find

    I would appreciate any info and year built you can find

    Code# so we can be on the same page, there is about 6 different SAE400's

    cruizer, i am confused, if the sae 400 is a variable voltage machine wouldn't you run the 12vs on constant current setting? (? on your post #9.) thanks tom.

    And no reason to change polarity unless your running fluxcore

    If the SAE 400 is variable voltage should I use the CC or CV setting on the 12-VS ?

    Also is it ok to reverse polarity when using the 12-VS ?

    Every machine will run the VS suitcase, but only those having 24Vac will run a RC

    Thanks cruiser. I run it (12rc) with a tb302 and it seems to run great. Iam I doing things right? And why wouldn't a 12k machine be able to run it? It looks more and more the 350pp is the way to go it will run the vs and rc

    12rc requires a constant voltage setting on the machine its hooked to i believe. however the ln-25 should work no prob.

    12vs should be fine with sae400
