So a week ago this past Monday, my cheapy wirefeed welder broke. I was in the middle of welding up my transmission crossmember, and it just up and stopped feeding wire!
So, I spent a few days on Craigslist, eBay, and other sites with new and used welders, and finally on Saturday morning caught a Lincoln 175HD welder on eBay for $390 + $40 shipping. What a great deal! :)
Anyways, I got the welder today, and of course, my outlet is not compatible, so I’ll need to stop by the hardware store tomorrow. The outlet is a 50amp, 250v NEMA Type 6-50p plug, FYI.
So, here are some photos of the welder coming out to play:
