I'm wondering if a Lincoln Ranger 8 can do Air Arc? I asked at the local
welding shop, but they said I'd need to buy the new Ranger 10000. I'm
worried they might just be trying to make a sale, or that they haven't dealt
with the Ranger 8 in so long that they don't know its capabilities.
The Lincoln Ranger 8 pumps out 8000 watts, single phase. Link to PDF of
I've also got an air compressor that I can tote around with the welding
It seems like I could pressure up the tanks on the air compressor using the
welder's AC outlet, then unplug it so that the air compressor doesn't try to
kick back on while I'm welding. Then, I would crank the welder up to 150
Amps or so, and air-arc away!
Anyone have any thoughts on why I could or could not do this? (before I
spend the money for air arc cables)
