Are oil cooled welders that common in the US. I read about tombstone welders frequently on here and just wondered as in the UK the oil cooled Oxford and Pickhill welders seems to be common 2nd hand. I started with a 180A buzz box, most likely of Italian origin, and then got a Pickhill oil cooled 180A @ 50V OCV and 135A @ 80V OCV, lovely not having the buzz. Made re-instating a roughly 2" x 2" section of missing anvil hardface with 1/8" hardfacing rods a breeze as after laying down rod for a couple of hours it was only warm to the touch. A brief google showed USCO? as doing them for high duty cycle applications.
