Lincoln Arc Welder

Ok so here it is, I have a Lincoln 180C mig that works well for me. A guy at work has a Lincoln Ac / DC stick welder that he wants to sell for a 150. Is it worth to buy it being that I have a mig? I am getting more and more into fabrication and the only justification would be that with the stick welder I can more easily weld different materials and that I can weld thicker metal.

Thoughts?

Might be worth the learning experience, if nothing else!

Might be good to have for a windy day driveway repair on something heavy. You could also make a carbon arc torch with it if you need something heated but don't have an OA rig.

While 90 percent if the welding i do is done with wirefeed... A shop is not complete without an ac/DC stick welder, you can weld aluminum, stainless, very thick mild, run carbon arc for cutting/ gouging, etc. for $150 you can't lose, I'd buy it.

If the rods have been sitting, you may want to toss them in an oven to burn off moisture.

Didn't know you could do that. Thought once they were wet they were done.
