Well... at least I am politically correct...

and only have as many as I can justify...

some of us are "special needs" weldors...

besides.. tooljunkyism is a recognized malady... not my fault...

I figure I'm covered by a Grandfather clause of some sort... Since my big AC welder is from the Teens-20's and the little one is from the 30's... then the various inverters are foreign born (so they are exempt ? Right )

The Lincolns all fall under American treasure status and the Hobart gets an honorable mention.

I need to find a Miller just because I don't have one...

but..... am following the algore carbon footprint doctrine...

screaming guilt and green... while...

beating my chest at my sacrafice...

got rid of the 727 and replaced it with a more responsible G5....

see... cut the carbon footprint in half..... Responsible....

clearly a case of do as I say not as I do...

and of course JACK IS GUILTY....

If I scream.. jump up and down while pointing at him...

maybe they might not notice how many I have...

not buying the fire bow dodge..... eh???....

Default Lincoln??

For the faceplate.... have you tried emailing Lincoln parts dept??

for the G7 it would be one of the variations of item #40 in this parts list

http://www.lincolnelectric.com/asset...coln1/p183.pdf

the worst thing that they could tell you is that it is no longer available or so rare they have to charge $10k each...

I'm not needing a plate on this one...I just happened across the site and wanted to share it and store it for the future ...just in case the need came up.

Didn't occur to me to check Lincolns site ,but might be another option in case.
