Lincoln weldpak 100 vs. 140...

Hey fabricators,

I have the opportunity to get a weldpak 100 for $200 brand new never used. I will be doing body repair work, possible axle swap, exhaust, a cage, etc. Nothing too major. Should I jump on it (it has a possible gas conversion for it) or should I try to get a bigger 120 volt? I don't have access to 220v so that is out!

Just want some advice from people who have had them and what they have done.

I have read and researched a ton with the search feature but never got an answer comparing two 120 volt units...

Thanks!

Chris

get the biggest you can for 120v. 140amps. You'll need a 120v plug and extension cord that can handle it too (20-30amps), otherwise you'll trip the fuse in seconds at full amperage. The 120v/140A is about at the limit with 3/16" in single pass, but can do 1/4" if you know what you're doing and how to bevel.

Most around here won't recommend 120v'ers for roll cage work, even tho most use 1/8" wall tube. For my cage I traded a friend some work & beer to have him weld it with 220v.

I will look for that then! I know I will keep it for a long time so I guess stepping up wouldn't hurt. I do know few people that could weld 220v for me so that is definitely an option...

Here is the link to the welder I was looking at if anyone wants it! - It is in va
