Pop, Being in the Merchant Marine, I don't know how many old Lincoln 3 Phase welders I have used.

When I found my Miller Dialarc 250, I used the old Lincoln's, to compare it to, using single phase 220V.

I was not disappointed, admittedly the 3 Phase with an old Lincoln should be as smooth as it gets, the Miller in my shop was pretty darn close to it!

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace.
We ask not your counsels or arms.
Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.
May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” -Samuel Adams
