    Maybe you shouldn’t have left the machine out in the rain like your lawn mower.

    Why don't you get out the stick and some 1/16 rod?

    If you're referring o welding the pins in the holes shown, it might, depending on the fit, be sufficient to just peen the edges of the holes inward. The pins would thus be secured but if needed, they could be more easily removed by just driving them out from one side.

    Wire welders are complicated... there's an awful lot going on in a MIG/MAG/FCAW arc. Constant voltage, stickout, inductance, wire speed, and if anything is slightly not right, they run like crap. Simple as. It's all about maintenance!
    I refer back to my previous post, Sam but if you want to keep breaking machines and replacing them... just keep on doing what you do

    They'll be welded, then ground flush. I don't ever anticipate replacing the wheels in the lifetime of the thing.

    Knowing that rust will be a problem, the holes in the wheels are drilled 1/16 oversize so they won't ever seize up. The thing probably won't be used more than maybe 2-3 times a year. And, it will doggone sure never get a drop of oil on it

    For the wise azzes....................................... https://www.ebay.com/str/ser41sosa

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/15497131197...cAAOSwzzdgf1i~

    Speed control is apparently a common problem on these welders.

    They're not industrial welders.

    One of the complaints I've always had, is how the power diminishes the longer you use the machine. After a few minutes running, you have to decrease stickout to almost zero in order to keep running with the same results as when the work starts. I've never had one shut down due to thermal overload, but the sparkler just keeps getting weaker, and weaker.................and the gun gets almost too hot to handle.

    The 240v machine has been better than the old 120v machine in this regard, but it still comes up short when you have a bit of work to do.

    I need to slap the carb back on the Ranger, and get the LN out. But that ain't gonna happen for a while.

    I'm close enough to finishing out, that I can limp on in home with the thing. Yesterday I found that if you go up one, or two, clicks beyond the usual setting on voltage, the thing will still put out an arc. It's sort of all, or nothing, at this point. Go up to #4 tap, reduce the wire feed roller tension to the point it almost starts slipping, and give her Hell If you move fast enough, you can keep from blowing through.

    I read your post, and was sitting here looking at the premarket trading.............and it occurred to me that I used to buy Forney rods at the milling company in Stillwater. They carried the little rods in bulk bins. You paid by the lb.

    I did quite a bit of sheet metal work on my old swather with those rods back in the day.

    It looks like they're still available https://www.acmetools.com/forney-e60...25%20-%2030%25

    Re: Loading Chute

    I never owned 1/16" welding rods, so I looked on eBay, and Amazon,,
    For some reason, 6013 is 50% more than 7014,, so, I ordered a couple pounds of 1/16" 7014,,

    I would imagine they should be similar to the 6013??

    I was going to build a steel bluebird house, so I kept an old washing machine that my daughter was gonna trash,
    That ought to be a good test of the rods,,,..

    We will see if the squirrels can get past the 7014 welds,, those squirrels flat tear up a wood bird house,,,

    I've used some 1/16" 6013 and 7014 rods in some special cases. Really whippy. Kinda like welding with a stick of thin spaghetti! Don't drink too much caffeinated coffee beforehand..... Sometimes I use them to fill in holes and buggered up plug welds to make them pretty as a pig with lipstick on.

    Because the engine drive still isn't running.

    Are you sure about that? I ask because my understanding was that it being down was a huge crisis, probably requiring a complete, component level teardown and re engineering...even higher priority than not building a mud based gantry to half am angstrom tolerance so that the engine on a clapped out Oliver could be not pulled and not overhauled so that hopefully the cows couldn’t be fed, all of which was worked in between visits to the ER, since making and keeping appointments is for lesser, common folks.

    Answers my question.

Size:  201.3 KB Schweeeeeet. Welder still running like crap, but if you fight it, it runs good enough to get 'er done. Set at volts for 3/16-1/4(which is insanely hot)............. welding 14ga/11ga. Run like a striped azz ape, and it will do it. Slow down, and it drops a bigazz hole through the metal. Enough to finish out. Worry about the damn thing later.

    Another one in the books. This one is done, and gone. Was nice to finish out this evening.

    K'kins did the operating thing, and it suited her........so we're good to go. A days worth of work on the ramp tomorrow, and we're ready to hit the road.

    For sure... that's tough enough for bison. Most cattle penning I see is made from 1" steel tubing.

    I remember how wiggly they were, for sure. And........to do really thin stuff, you had to run them so cool, that keeping them lit was a real challenge.

    Remember sammm, pictures or it didn't happen. In this case, short video of a cow getting run through the chute. The other photos ain't got no ACTION!!!

    That's a tall order Have to figure out a way that it can be done without K'kins face showing. She will not allow herself to be shown on YouTube. She is absolutely firm on privacy. Might be able to do something where she can face away while operating the gate.

    I believe the only video of her, is her back, while feeding a bottle calf. I can put a bag over my head, but I don't believe she'd stand for that

    The Lincoln 180C is overpriced. The only benefit over the box store 180's is it has Continuous Voltage selection- That's a lot of coin for that option.
