    Re: Lincoln Stick Welder

    I thought I wrote on this earlier, must have not posted it but that is a beauty. Yes, the Hobart is the same in that model. My own is red but the same class and I burned a whole handful of 1/8 lo hy at a time more than once doing something like a trailer weld out as fast as I can chuck them in the stinger. Couple times over the years I stop in hot weather but when it's cooler really blaze away. Only reason for a heavier machine would be bigger electrodes if a guy was a contractor.

    I chop the leads off about a foot out and put connectors on for split and longer leads. Got a stinger reaches my grounded booth and bench, then got a set of leads by the door for outdoor. I been at this a while, it's still my go to stick.

    Re: Lincoln Stick Welder

    For just a bit more than the price of a new Tombstone AC/DC I picked up this minty Dialarc 250 over the weekend. I'm probably going to sell both Thunderbolts since I also have a Hobart Champion Elite welder/generator if the Dialarc goes down (unlikely). Deals on this style stick welder are still pretty easy to come by.

    Excellent choice on the Miller dialarc over that AC/DC tombstone. Now you will have all the power you will probably ever need on DC. What type power and input amperage do you need? I heard someone say it is 100 amps. Very unlikely to be three phase. I had to rig this shutoff switch because my Linde required 150 amps of input.

    You hit a home run with the Dialarc250. Those are great welders. I’ve run several on 50 amp service with no issues using 1/8 or 5/32 rods. Enjoy your machine

    I'm actually not the OP who was considering the Lincoln Tombstone....I was just pointing out an alternative for around the same money.

    The machine calls for 230V, 100amp service, but lots of folks run them on 50 amp breaker/outlets. I tried it on a 40amp circuit and ran it up over 200 amps with no problems, and then tried it plugged into my Hobart Champion Elite....11Kw so a bit under 50amps, and it was also fine. I'm going to set up a 60amp circuit for it and see how that goes. I can run a 100amp circuit if needed, but I doubt it will come to that.

    I've only used it for less than half an hour, but tried it on both 1/8 and 5/32 7018 and really liked the arc and beads I was getting. I doubt I'll ever outgrow it!

    Nope, your set for a stick machine. They seem to have a softer arc that the Lincoln Idealarc 250. I have ran both and both are great. Just a blonde/brunette thing, both get the job done!

    We all like your choice way more than the OP’s choice.

    Re: Lincoln Stick Welder

    I will use either, I have used a whole truckload of Dial arc types. They are super good if a guy wants big rod and plans to run the **** out of it, occasional simple stuff don't care as long as it's DC.
    I got a 300 synch,, never use it. It's a cart for the other 2 machines.
