    Default Welder needs a good home

    Hey guys,

    I'm in the Oklahoma City, OK area and have an old Lincoln 225 AC only "cracker box". You know the one. I think most of us started on that thing in someone's back shop. I'm at the point that I have too many machines around (I know, I never thought I'd say it either). This one was given to me and I'm looking for someone to give it too as well. I would like it to go to someone that wants to get into welding, not an established weldor. It's not much, but I'd like to see it have a good home for someone to learn on, rather than get anymore mud-dobber nests built in it. It's not worth shipping anywhere, so I would have to be picked up. Give me a shout.

    I applaude your pay-it-through attitude. I hope someone in the Oklahoma area can take you up on it.

    See if a local high school has a FFA (Future Farmers of America) chapter, if so talk to their advisor. He can help you with your mission.

    Default Good man!

    You're a good man! We had 2 of the same welder and we also passed one on some time ago..I personally think they are great welders for AC and I don't think you can wear them out if you take care of them...I may be wrong but I'm thinking they are 100% duty cycle..someone correct me if I'm wrong..Anyway that's nice of you for passing it on.
    Regards, Farris

    The ones I'm familiar with have a 20% duty cycle, which is why thousands of them were wired with #10 wire in thousands of barns across the country.

    Mac, I just talked to a friend on the phone and he told me the same thing as you 20%..I don't know why I was thinking 100% We sure did work it hard or (maybe i just thought we did *LOL*)over the years and I never remember it quitting on us. Did the old ones (around 1968-1970) have a higher duty cycle?
    Thanks, Farris
