Lincoln Electricís MIG welders are part of a grand tradition. I've
used several at various jobs, and think they are some of the more solid welders
Lincoln Welders are a proven industry leader with over 100 years of design
experience. Lincoln offers a wide selection of welders including models such as
the 175 Amp TIG Welder, the Lincoln Weld Pak, and MIG Lincoln Welders. There are
a lot of options for your new Lincoln mig welder. There are very few companies
that still display the high standards that Lincoln Welders have achieved.
Lincoln's commitment to providing the most innovative, cost-effective,
quality mig welders and cutting solutions has guided the company for more than a
century. Its technological leadership and worldwide manufacturing and
distribution resources, enables Lincoln to provide great M.I.G. welding machines
for a variety of jobs.
Lincoln Mig Welders: General Usage
I recommend using a compact 115volt input (or 230 volt) Lincoln MIG
wirefeeder welder indoors on clean new steels 24 to 12 gauge thick.
12 gauge is around 1/8" thick. 24 gauge is less than 1/16" thick. The
smallest wire will make it the easiest to MIG weld the thinnest material. If you
need to MIG weld 1/8" to 1/4" thick material, you will need the higher capacity
compact machine which will require 230 volt input.
Lincoln says the higher amperage range of this machine can better handle
your welding needs in a single pass and you may not have to waste time with more
passes. The 230 volt machine could also run .035" diameter wire. To MIG weld
material more than 1/4" thick, you need a higher capacity truly industrial
Lincoln mig welder machine. If most of your welding will be performed indoors on
clean material that is less than 1/8" thick, a Lincoln MIG welder that
operates on 115 volts is probably your best bet for economic reasons in that a
230 volt input machine will be more expensive.
Advantages of Lincoln Mig Welders
Lincoln mig welders are the best choice when cosmetic appearance is an issue
since it provides lower spatter levels than flux-cored. The arc is soft and less
likely to burn through thin material.
The lower spatter associated with Lincoln MIG also means no slag to chip off
and faster cleaning time.
MIG is the easiest type of welding to learn and is more forgiving. Procedure
settings are more forgiving.
