Default Vintage Welder Thread???

Hi,
I looked for a thread on Vintage Welders and could not find anything?

Because I love the old Welders thought I would see what people have here.

Any history or thoughts about the Welder would be nice also!

I have a 26 year old Daytona Mig, actually an Italian CEBORA wire feed welder.

I'll try to get some pics later.

My other claim to fame is a 1981 Miller Dialarc 250 AC/DC.

I found that the Mig was not good for certain things and was lucky to find the Miller at a great price on CL.

All I did to it, is clean it, and it will burn a rod!

I have a miller straight transformer A.C. unit that has no fan (it is OEM)
that dates from the 1950's

I have a Lincoln "teapot" MG welder, the 250 "aircrafter" with remote plug
(sadly I never seen a footpedal) that was made pre WWll.

I have a pix in the Lincoln book, showing DC-3 landing gear (heavy wall 4130 tube) being stick welded with that welder.

Somewhere on the internet, is a video, of the Germans, stick welding a u-boat, around 1916-17, during WWI.

My oldest is a 1952 Lincwelder 180 C. The Dialarc is 1974, and might be the second one produced according to the serial number. The Syncrowave and the Idealarc are a bit newer.

Hi,
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!

Most Lincoln ac/dc xformer type were single phase

Westinghouse, made a xformer type one (my neighbors has it) that was 3 phase, and had selenium rectifiers..

IT was very smooth, and had a curious
"whistle" to the arc.

Yes, I built my own 40 hp RPC as well, run a couple of welders off it.

However, is the Lincoln you pictured 3phase ?
