uses for Lincoln tombstone welder

Just inherited a used, but functioning, Lincoln buzz box. Needs
electrode holder, but thats an easy fix. I rarely do any stick work
and am curious what I could potentially put this to use doing.
A spot welder would be nice, but I think the transformer is sized
totally wrong (unless I'm misunderstanding the principle)
So what is this thing good for beside the obvious?
Thanks,
Vin

Where are you located?
You can add a Readywelder and run wire, I hear. readywelder.com
I have a nice Miller spotwelder if you're looking for one.

I hope you don't need it for this, but they work well for thawing pipes.

But only the 75 amp tap is 100% duty cycle.

Grant, I'm across the country in Boston. What are you looking for for that miller spotwelder?
I might play around with putting togther a wirefeeder of my own, but I've allready got a mig so this gets kinda redundant.
Thanks,
Vin
