    Re: Hi new user and welder

    Welcome! Looks like a pretty nice welder. It looks to be very similar to a Lincoln AC/DC 125/225. Just shaped differently... and of course more Canadian, having French on it and whatnot.

    As long as you have access to a 50A 240V single phase outlet, it aughta serve you well!

    Ods are it is a Lincoln design and licensed but manufacture from a different country.

    It is only a guess 🤷

    The good news is most parts can be purchased from Amazon or shop made.

    Re: Hi new user and welder

    If you can find the manual on the Lincoln one (Lincoln website), I bet it will apply to your welder. AC/DC is much better!

    If it works, you should get a lot of welding out of it. They are pretty simple compared to current models so any repairs should be easy.

    Welcome to welding!

    Im trying to find the model of the lincoln -pretty sure their the same as well .I was going to get a new inverter one but most said made in "china"
    in my current price range (I have too much other hobbies) but figured by what I have read these older ones last a longer time

    Welcome to the house. I do believe that machine is the same as the lincoln and will serve you well. I also believe that the manuals will be interchangeable, just the dialect will be a bit different.....EH??

    We definitely have lincolns here -their extremely common and a major brand
    name here-I know century was also made by lincoln -arcweld i've actually not seen here Its always mostly Lincoln or Milner--but I googled a bit to find out looking at some websites lincoln and arcweld are actually still branded together

    and they still seem to produce newer ones
    sending them an email

    As what I have founf is arcweld is not coming up in canadian sites by lincoln but it is branded together in many licoln products on their UK site

    Re: Hi new user and welder

    Honestly those machines are so simple the owners manual isn't going to tell you very much at all. Set it for DC electrode positive, pick your favorite flavor of welding rod (7018, 7014, 6010, 6011, 6013, etc) and set the amps for somewhere near the middle of the amperage range recommended by the welding rod manufacturer. Every rod comes with a recommended amp range. This is an example for Lincoln Excalibur 7018 rods. Note how the amp range changes with the rod diameter. For 1/8th inch rod, the min is 90 amps and the max is 160 amps. If you set your dial as close to 125 amps as possible, you will be all set. If your dial isn't very accurate (as often happens) or you find you are running too hot or too cold (you will learn that in your apprenticeship) then just adjust 1-2 notches higher or lower.

    Those 1/8 6013s burn good strike easy on my Lincoln on DC. Slag comes off clean too. My Grandson was burning some for practice.
