Re: welder questions
[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] The early welders did make a lot more noise. Our 1946 model Sears Roebuck welder did, and when it was welding, it was really noisy. Before you slap a fan in there, run a volts check on the fan leads....it could be 220, especially if the welder only has two wires in the cord. OR....the fan could be 110V and it has lost it's neutral. Either way, check the volts and see. Without a fan it is just a normal 150-180 low-duty cycle welder. With the fan it's a real master blaster.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
I never believe any statistics unless my moonguys [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] made 'em up themselves.
