    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.

    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..
