    Plasma Cutter Pilot Arc

    You can seriously screw up your power grid if it isn't done correctly. The HF will feed back onto the ground.

    Welding plastic

    A lot of "plastic" fenders on tractors have a fiberglass or some other fiber component to them. Very rarely are they a plastic that could be welded back together. I was working for New holland when they introduced Plastic fuel tanks on their Genesis tractors and some of them were getting holes...

    Everlast 210STL Users Out There?

    Line conditioners smooth out the THD but they can cost as much as the generator. See my post above. This is the best way to do it.

    Everlast 210STL Users Out There?

    There are line conditioners, but a big one costs as much as a generator. It's not really practical. See my post above.

    As a follow up, name brand doesn't buy you clean power automatically in a generator. The Northern tool Powerhorse generators are far cheaper, but meet the 5% THD requirement.

    It doesn't have to be visible. It messes with the control circuit and transformer. What you are describing is typical of that kind of problem. That's why I went out on a limb and mentioned it. Generac, if you call them, should have an idea what THD that model puts out.
  8. Mark @ Everlast

    Everlast 210STL Users Out There?

    Unless it is a X series Generac unit, it is NOT clean...and likely the source of the damage. It can be immediate if it is dirty enough or cumulative if it is off the specs we provide, but not at 25% THD like some.
  9. Mark @ Everlast

    Everlast 210STL Users Out There?

    What generator was it? If it was over 5% THD, it could burn up the boards (not clean power). We do have a warning in the manuals and on the website about it. It could also not be enough power? I think you need about 9000 watts. When you shut down, was it always disconnected? Floating...

    Usually, when this happens, it's an issue with not having serviced it lately. A lot of times you can open it up, remove the connectors, blow them out and replug them and things will start working again. We recommend that those units that are used frequently be cleaned out every 3 to 4 months...

    Yes, but it's a lot more of a welder than the 200es. It's a better MIG overall, and it also has way more power. The 200es is just 180A @ 25% duty cycle. The 212 is 200A at 35% duty cycle and a max output of 230A. It's actually on sale now at 999.00 shipped.

    Old Mig wire

    70S3 is not worth welding with to begin with. It's a budget wire and has little to no deoxidizers. It welds badly unless the metal is 100% clean and mill scale and rust free. Recycle it, because if it has rust, it won't be worth tearing up your liner to try to weld with it.

    No, that's about right for a transformer for 90A rating. And that is an "average" rating they give, not a max breaker rating for inrush. A transfomer capable of welding 140A at max output will trip a 30A breaker. Hobart's own data shows it's only a 9% duty cycle at 140A. That's less than 1...

    New inexpensive trimode welder

    Were you welding with .023" wire? It's hard to do. The Hobart 140 is really only about a 90A welder. The 140 is more theoretical. Duty cycle is usually around 20% @ 90A. With .023" wire, you are hard pressed to reach 90A.

    Any way to weld the thin metal on tractors and attachments?

  88. Mark @ Everlast

    Any way to weld the thin metal on tractors and attachments?

    Any welding process should be able to weld what you listed. For stick, just use a small rod like 5/64 or 3/32. Use something like a 7014. Or for MIG, just use something like .030" wire. TIG can do it, but that's an investment a lot of people don't want to make.

    Any weld from any of the processes, when done properly will hold and work as good as the other by and large.

    A proper sized bottle of helium is more than a 100 bucks. You need a lot of flow rate with Helium. One guy priced a bottle of helium and was going to use DC. He was quoted 500.00. He bought a new AC DC machine because someone misled him about DC. He figured after a couple of bottles of...

    What's the deal with "digital" LCD screen welders?

    FWIW, on our welders use muffin fans, which will work if you match specs. Easy to find, cheap to buy. Same thing with the old Montgomery ward AC stick welder. You still need to match specs if you want the same duty cycle.
  121. Mark @ Everlast

    What's the deal with "digital" LCD screen welders?

    You assume that because it is "technological" or has electronics, it is both unserviceable, and prone to damage. Just as with anything it is related to design. You also assume it is costly to repair. Our board that takes 10 minutes to replace will likely cost you less than what a switch (if...

    I bet if you opened them up, you'd see degradation of the core. These are often exposed to humidity, and corrosive environments (like the smoke from welding) with little protection of the iron used and very little maintenance (if any). I've never said to ditch your old piece of crap welder...

  126. Mark @ Everlast

    What's the deal with "digital" LCD screen welders?

    Unfortunately, your synchro will turn into a major brick as soon as something happens.

Miller seems to be obsoleting their products much faster than before and/or raising...

    The LCD screen is pretty tough and reliable...I can understand but hey, unless you drop your phone and crack your glass, how many screens wear out? The screen is very similar to that although a bit lower resolution...iirc 480. And it's not even touch screen.

    Yes it comes with a nema 6-50 50a plug which is (and has been for I guess for 50years nearly) the standard for all 240v welders in the u.s.a. the size of the cable on the unit does not dictate the wire size you need on supply conductors though. It is dual voltage. But sized properly based off...

    Inrush is right at 30A. I'd recommend a 40A since it is a tad over at maximum. But any good slow trip 30A would work. But that is betweeen you and your electrician and code official.
  139. Mark @ Everlast

    The Storm is coming in November.

    No. Just cutting. For serious gouging you need 80 amps or more and high duty cycle. Our stand alone units do it, but because they are higher duty cycle...and they still are for light gouging 60A and under. The 80 and 100A units would be best for this.

    220V Plused spray MIG welders?

    Not really. I live in a rural area far from big volume. If most people look around, they will find. I've had a number of people who think they don't have a local welding or steel supply near them. I go online and find 6 or 7 just a few miles away.

    I'd disagree with that. I've built a number of them. Usually I can build them for half the price or less. Of course, I buy parts from the source rather than the retail like Tractor Supply or someplace like that. I get new tires on rims for like 50 to 75. Fender sets (double axles) are like...
