    Default Some quick and dirty repairs

    A few pics of some repair work. D-rings for trailer, 7018 1/8th @ 120 or so. Kuhn hay mower that kissed a low limb at highway speed. A lot of heating and beating some o/a cutting some welding and he was ready for his next cutting of hay. This hole is in a fuel tank I received. Now it has no hole in the top. Another local farmer had an unwanted discharge point in his grain buggy. This was today and I trying to plant strawberries and he has soybeans needing cut. I found some drop sheet metal and he should be running and gunning now. Thanks for looking!

    Thanks! There ain't nothing like the old short hood in your pic. I had two black faces loved the arc but I sold them two years ago. Yours looks great, the SA is unequaled for doing it day in and day out for decades.

    People who have never run one of these 100% copper machines just don't understand what we're talking about far as quality of arc! When I got out of welding school you didn't see a whole lot of shorthoods on heavy civil construction projects, but red face machines were everywhere. Years later Lincoln decided to come out with the LN-22 wire feeder so the old red face machines were not powerful enough, then came the SAE machines. For quite a few years I worked for a drilling company, I had an SAE-400 that was sent from job to job with me. Then the engineers started requiring CV machines when running wire. I ran a few machines with CV-boxes, but it wasn't long until Lincoln came out with the SAM-400s. I'd have to say the SAE machines have the closest arc to the SA-200s. The SAE machines had more control over the puddle than the SA machines, but nothing like these new inverters!

    Shield arc: I run a 225 bobcat with a duetz. I call it my little blue money maker. It does very well but I do just about everything with a stick. Never have done much wire feed in the field, and very little in the few shops I worked at. I really like stick and tig because of the control and feel. The miller xmt's are awesome I had to test on one a few years ago it was so nice!

    Welder mike: thanks for nod brother!
    I will try to keep posting jobs and I have a lot of repairs on my own equipment but no time to do em. I really love peeling slag and flaking torch cuts my wife says I'm weird. It just gets my all excited when does it.

    Not much more satisfying than seeing the LH flux just peel up behind your weld so you just touch it with a rod and it falls off. I havent seen that happen in many years though at least not consistently. I think that Atom Arc changed something in the flux many years ago as the slag just doesnt come off as easy.
    Nothing better than piddling around in my shop and finding something to weld together.
