Would this work as a MIG power source?
« on: April 30, 2019, 01:28:11 PM »
I've never MIG/GMAW welded.
I enjoy TIG/GTAW and ARC/Shielded/SMAW.
And while I can often put down good welds, I am not an expert by any means, and refuse to do any life/safety welds.

One of my welders is a Lincoln SAE200J input 240v 3ph. With her it is really easy to put down some good welds!
She has both CV and CC controls pages 6&7 of the attached manual.

Does anyone know if the SAE200J would work for MIG if used in conjunction with a wire feeder (e.g.  http://www.hoffonlineauctions.net/cgi-bin/mnlist.cgi?hoff78/217/1 ) and other appropriate guns and gases?

Thanks for your opinions and knowledge,

You will probably have to adapt a new plug from the Miller wire feeder to the Lincoln welder.  Should be easy to do. I've seen it done on similar machines using other brand wire feeders.

I'll be watching when she comes to auction. I may be back for more counseling on this one!!
