Have a question not a electrical or welding exper... I have a Lincoln buzz box 220vac stick welder. Looks like a tombstone it's old. just AC.
The fan took a dump on me. I took it out and then looked online only to find Lincoln replacement fans are a little pricy. Was looking around local places like science and surplus etc. and trying to find a 220VAC fan.. and didn't. Although there were a few decent high power 110VAC fans laying around the surplus store. They'd work just have to be hooked up properly.
Was thinking instead of ordering a 220VAC fan online and paying like $50 couldn't I take 2 110VAC fans and hook them up in series to the 220VAC leads in the welder? Not sure if that would work. Sounds like it might but figured I'd ask before I screw something up.
