I just picked this up for $200. It weighs 900 lbs. I haven’t picked it up yet. They claim it works. Must be from the 60’s but reputed to be a fine indestructible welder. Looks like it has pedal control and has AC/DC so maybe I can play with aluminum.
Find out in a few weeks, maybe months if it doesn’t warm up.
I have been relatively happy with my $200 HF tug welder. I’m very slow which is a no-no but most of my stuff is hanging together. I keep a close eye on the front end of Schizoid since that is raked like HOTT did Ol’ Sparky. So far so good. The key with TIG is you have to have everything very clean. I’m guessing that’s true across the board for welding.
