    Please identify this Lincoln welder

    There is a yard sale tomorrow in my area. They posted a bunch of photos, including this one of a welder, but no description. Can anyone identify it?

    Difficult to tell without better or more pics but, maybe some one else may be able to identify it. Looks like it has a cylinder on the rear so possibly a mig or tig welder. Asking price for it?

    Don't know the asking price. No other information was provided. I may go check it out tomorrow, but I'd like to get educated beforehand.

    Yeah, I dont blame you. I dont have an idea of what it is but would like to know myself also. If you go check it out, regardless if you buy it or not, please let us know what it is. Thanks!

    I'm 93% positive it's an SP200.

    Check the volage before you buy. Some of those were three phase only.

    99% sure its an sp-200. They're a bomber machine if its single phase and it works. Not to sure on parts availability if something goes bad. But probably unlikely it will. He gave $400 for his about 5 years ago and that seemed to be a really good deal.

    Make sure it works. The circuit boards and relays were not micro-sized in this old machine so something could be repaired if needed. That would depend on your skills, though. Don't count on Lincoln having many parts available for it.

    The seller confirmed it's an SP 200. He's asking $500 for it. That seems kind of high for that old of a machine.

    Re: Please identify this Lincoln welder

    I went and looked at it this morning. It is a single phase machine. But there was no way to test it out. I offered $200 as-is, but they passed. It is a big machine it would have been a tight squeeze in my crowded garage.

    Re: Please identify this Lincoln welder

    Yeah you can see how big the early mig units were and how compact the new ones are. My Millermatic 200 is a little more narrower and fits nicely in my garage. By and chance you grab the serial number off it? Just wanted to check the year on it. The manual pipeliner uploaded has a date on the page 1987.

    Sorry, I didn't look at the serial #. I didn't leave my phone, but I have their email. I may send an email tomorrow after the yard sale is over. If they still have it, they may reconsider my offer.

    There's some past threads here on the SP200. Might be some good reading material

    I didn't leave the yard sale completely empty handed. I got this hand little Lincoln/Harris port-a-torch set for $40. It's all there, including airgas tanks. All I need to do is get a fresh set of tanks and clean it up a bit. Just right for small, quick jobs.

    I was going to go all in at 100% but I have underlying commitment issues.

    1/2 the time I'm right, 1/2 the time I'm wrong and the other 1/2 I'm just not sure.
