Ive got an opportunity to score an Idealarc Mig 300 AC/DC welder. It has the tank, the MIG torch and the consumables..quite a pile of various filler rods and such. Reading the data plate, its 208 single phase with a max of 91 amps, so I Could use it on my 50 amp shop service as long as I dont go too high, right? 1/8" rod high?
Has the pedal of course and a water chiller hung off the back of the machine. A switch on the front says Stick/Mig, so this can be used for stick welding also? Simply add a stinger to the electrode terminal or do I also have to remove the MIG connection?
I might..might be able to get this for some labor over a long period of time..IE a small percentage of my regular labor that I do for them.
How much is this worth on todays market and is it a good combo machine?
"The entire population of Great Britain has been declared insane by their government. It is believed that should any one of them come in possession of a firearm, he will immediately start to foam at the mouth and begin kiling children at the nearest school. The proof of their insanity is that they actually believe this." -- someone in misc.survivalism
