  • ln 25 on Lincoln square wave 175

    Hey everyone. I know this is a miller forum but I'm sure the people on here are not limited only experience with miller products. Anyway, I was wondering if I can run a LN 25 off my Lincoln square wave 175 pro. And if anyone has or is doing it. Thanks.

      **** it. I didnt think so. But I figured i would ask. I was hoping. Oh well. What's the reasoning behind it? I know its a CC machine. Is that why it's not good?

            It can be done... but it is not a great combination..

            here is the LN-25 manual

              Thanks h8on. Guess I will go a different route. On a side note, what is a LN 25 worth? I might have one for sale!

                That Squarewave TIG 175 is a pretty decent entry level AC/DC TIG machine...
                and not a bad stick burner... why not just enjoy it for what it is??

                  I enjoy it very much. And I have no intent of getting rid of it. I was just hoping i could run a LN 25 wire feed off of it and have a sorta one machine fits all. Its free to dream. Ha ha.

                    I want to say that my ln-25 has a sticker on it saying not to run off of square wave machines. My guess is too high OCV.

                      Yes you can, mild steel will be spray for non critical welds, or a dual shield wire and in CC only. Guys run off CC stick only machines all the time with dual shield...
