    Amateur Stick Welder

    Hello, Iím a new member, but not so new to welding. I first started as a young teen because my father and grandfather were struggling to get good welds, and somehow I had a knack. I continued to be the family welder just for our own steel projects. Iíve tried cast iron with some luck. Itís not my favorite, but sometimes necessary. Most of the time I have used one of our red Lincoln AC welders, and when I was more active, bought a Miller mig machine. I just came upon a Miller 180 AC/DC stick machine with the crank dial. That will afford me to weld with DC!

    Thanks for having me part of the group, Peter.

    Welcome! You will like the available choices with DC, both with rod selection and the ability to change polarity. I had DC availability at work but all by work at home was done on an old Craftsman 230 amp machine from the 70's & it's still going strong!
