    Need advice on LN-7...

    I have a chance to buy a mig welder from a factory closure. I'm not sure if it would be a good home welder or not. It looks pretty big and heavy and unlike any mig welder I've seen. It's in two parts, a cv250 base and LN-7 on top. I currently have a Hobart Handler 140 and an AC225 so I have a 240V / 50 amp circuit in my shop (I wired it myself with 6-2 wire.) Would this machine even be a viable choice for home? The original buyer backed out and they said they "would let it go cheap". What do you think? Thanks for any information. Name:  ln-7.jpg

    Well, I think I answered my own question, I think that cv-250 requires 3 phase input. Would a simple variable frequency drive be enough to power it? Sounding like it might be more trouble than it's worth.

    Probably needs plenty of surge when flipping the switch on?

    Yeah, the three phase requirement will make this pretty much useless to the average person.
