Re: campbell hausfeld welder

I have used one of those, quite alot actually,
itll weld small like 1 inch square tube and stuff
MAYBE burn thru 1/8 of an inch, but you have to go really slow to get that much penetration.

I NEVER hit the duty cycle on the one I used ( it was borrowed) I ran it wide open all the time, with the really small little rods from lowes, maybe 1/16"

welded some muffler rust holes up, welded some patio furniture up.. lots of little things like that

I learned the basics of stick weld with that little rig.


I love the U.S.A.

Re: campbell hausfeld welder

You can't go wrong at that price. Go ahead and buy it. It will get you started in welding and you will better know what you need and want later. You can always sell it at that price. It won't do your shackels or I wouldn't use for that.

Re: campbell hausfeld welder

1/16" electrodes? man I've never seen 'em that small. Could be handy for really light stuff. What do they sell for new? I see Lincoln 225 AC's around here in the classifieds pretty regular for $75-$100. AC arcs are kinda hard to get pretty welds out of when you are learning, but DC rigs are more expensive.

I just got myself a Lincoln 180 amp engine driven DC arc, picked it up off a job. We were developing some old farmland into a "retirement village" and the farmer just left a bunch of stuff for us to throw away. I haven't gone through it yet, but the 2-Cyl Wisconsin engine does turn over. It is a permanent magnet generator, so it should be OK they are pretty bulletproof. Gonna go through the whole thing and check it out, hopefully I'll have myself a pretty neat little portable welder. It is mounted on a little trailer that could use some work, not sure if I'll bother or just make something else.
