  • Idalarc 250 ac dc welder

    I just got this old welder at work I've read they were pretty good welders . What did miller make like it in that time frame or even now. Sorry about misspelling idealarc but I can't edit the title.

    Here is the manual for your Lincoln IDEALARC 250 code 6933

    it would be about on par with a Miller Thunderbolt AC/DC

      Actually, the Dialarc 250 would be more similar to the Idealarc. The Thunderbolt is more like the basic AC or AC/DC 225.
      Obviously, I'm just a hack-artist, you shouldn't be listening to anything I say .....

          Miller made the 250 Twin and the 250 AC/DC, both with the moveable shunt crank handle on the front. These predated the Dialarc, which is a magnetic amplifier type.
          Miller stuff:
          Dialarc 250 (1974)
          Syncrowave 250 (1992)

              Those crank-handle welders are obsolete. I prefer electric start any day.

                  A Miller Dialarc would be the Lincoln Idealarc equivalent. Your Lincoln is a 1971 year model. Many parts still available. Very reliable welders. If you need any info or help with anything let me know.

                    ?????? the OP Never said anything about a Dialarc...??...
                    Lincoln has used the "Idealarc" tag on a huge range of machines over the years....
                    So Idealarc is pretty much a generic term .

                    I think Pop pretty much nailed it....

                    If there is any more confusion... take a look at the manual for model #6933..

                    the link is posted earlier in the thread..

                      You guys argue. Meanwhile, me and J.W. Jarboe are going to make money with our Lincwelders. Them fancy Idealarcs have fans and other junk I don't need.

                      P.S. I have what I think is serial # 2 of the Dialarc, made in 1974, HD726781. The serial # is one higher than the starting serial number of the oldest manual I can find, and Miller says 1974 is the start year.

                          There are a lot of Jarboes out in that area of Kansas. I think he did a lot more on cold winter nights than welding.

                              Next you are gonna claim that it was used at the factory to weld up the starter cranks on AMC Pacers... just to make us think it is REALLY valuable...
