    EverLast 140ST

    Hey Everyone,

    I had gotten my first personal welder this year about 2 Months ago, I can say its nice having something at home. Not having to use the brother-in-laws all the time. Well I ended up getting a Everlast 140ST. Since I only at the moment have 120v in my shop and nothing else, and enjoy TIG Welding. I figured it would work out for me.

    I ended up for the first project that I wanted to do was make a welding cart to hold everything. Like the Tank, Leads and the machine itself. I did end up TIG welding the whole thing. Not bad for the first product I have ever made with it. And was a big learning experience doing Lift Start TIG. ( Since I have no skill at all to Stick Weld). The Other day I decided to paint it red and black, thought it did come out good.

    One hint with lift arc on this machine is to touch the cup to the workpiece and the pivot the torch on the cup to touch the tungsten to the work and then lift off or immediately roll back. You will almost never stick the tungsten this way. If you just try tapping the tungsten freehand to the workpiece, it's much more likely to stick.

    Ya, it was a good learning experience, I have gotten better over the 2 months. I was very bad in the start, just like my stick welding skills.

    Did some welding with my welder the other day to install my new light bar on the jeep. Had to TIG weld in some supports.

    He's probably related to Livingstone.

    No, Sedanman,

    We're not related.

    But it's nice to see enthusiastic new welders putting their new equipment (of whatever brand) to work and sharing their impressions.

    ROCK ON, dudes!

    That front bumper is pretty wicked!

    Did you fab that up with some other welding unit you had before?

    **STICK QUESTION** -- I just got this welder about a week ago. I am using the rods I had in the shop but they seem not to be the right match. I used a variety of rods : 7018, 7024, 6011, and 8024. The only ones who wanted to buzz good were 7024 and 6011. Are there any rods that I should be using?

    The only rod it may struggle with is the 6010. It should rock the 7018.--great little welder. If you know how to weld and can eliminate operator, it maybe a problem with the welder. Contact Everlast, especially if you are within the 30 day repair/return window. The AHP 160st is even better than the Everlast 140st. I do have them in stock too.

    The truck bed up-top that I build was welded with 7018 and had no problem. Also are you on the right polarity and what brand are you using for stick rods? You could of gotten a bad batch of sticks.
