I got a Miller 180 Autoset about a month ago. I love it! The autoset feature works really well too.

I own this nice little Lincoln SP-100 110V 100A welder. Works very well for everything I need it for. I bought it used, and have put a couple 10lb spools of wire through it, and about 3 bottles of CO2/Argon mix gas (small bottle, won't last a whole spool of wire), and it has worked very well. I am happy with it.

Makes beautiful welds too.

Here is my welder...hehehe. I dont actually have pics of the two welders, but they are lincoln. Both capable of exceeding 1000amps. And we run both welders to weld this stuff. Two welding heads. (like welding something with two guns at once)

Its Tig Capable too:



Q: Tig capable? Details:
Is this unit tig capable by adding a manual tig torch with gas valve to the stick output connections?

by Anonymous4 months, 2 weeks ago

Answers:

A: yes if it has a additional regulater accessory kit that can be purchased for it
by tigman26 (read all my Q&A)

Additional information about tigman26 could not be loaded. 4 months, 1 week ago



A:
This is TIG capable. It would be a scratch start TIG. The weld power on the torch would need a dinse connector.
