  • spotted some welders at a pawn shop

    i spotted 3 welder at a pawn shop two were lincoln and one was a miller. the niller one said high frequency on it and the two linconls sait tig .i'll go back to get some pictures but i tried searching on the internet for them but couldn't locate anything that looks like them.the miller was painted black. the lincolns was painted with the lincoln red all 3 units was in new out the box shape. i have been looking for the cheapest way to go so i can run tig off my bobcat when on road jobs. the two lincolns looked like they would do the job i think the number on the side of them said m80 or it might have been n80

    Am betting that the Miller unit is a HF add on box like an HF-251...

    which is not a stand alone welder but an acces to a welding power supply..

    BTW... they were painted black up until a few years ago..

        could i use this with my bobcat? i don
        t have no 14 pin receptical but could i run just my welding leads to it like my aluminum spool gun box? i'm trying to get back into tig welding it's been over 17 years sinse i even touched a tig machine. but i want everything to be able to run off my bobcat so i can do any type of welding on road jobs .right now i'm setting up my 16' double axle trailer as a mobil fab shop with everything from pipe benders to my homade plate bender.i don't like turning down a job because i just don't have the equipment.

          Maybe... probably with a bit of adapting..

          will have to see what model it is... then go from there....

          this looks like a prime example of why a Trailblazer is a better investment than Bobcat... if you intend to expand capabilities like HF-TIG, Spoolgun or Suitcase Feeder...

          That darned 14 pin sure would make it simple...

            There was a guy on weldingweb that added a 14 pin to an older bobcat. I believe his user name was Duane 55. Might be worth a look.
