    I attached a pic of the unit here! Thanks
    Wire feed welders (MIG) are normally constant voltage machines. Stick/Tig welders are constant current machines. There is a way to use a cv machine to stick weld but you would need a resistance grid and you can likely buy a stick welder cheaper that the grid which I don't think are very common(someone correct me?) The current adjustment on your cv machine is the wire speed. That is more wire more current at any given voltage setting. -Meltedmetal

    Picked up 2 Lincoln pro cut 55's for $50ea. Both came withe 25' torches One is missing 2 PC boards. The other turns on, purges air but won't start an arc. I dropped them off at ARC Equipment in Youngstown for some diagnostic ! Wish me luck!
