Cool Re: Sick Lincoln

Not SO Sick Lincoln, I weld with a 2000 sa-250. I stagger 200 & 300 brushes, it carries more iron, it works for me! Tom Fowler ( Hybriweld ) has his own line of brushes, it is a softer brush. Call he'll talk with you, good old boy!! He also makes his own line of welders called Fowler mainliner, BAD TO THE BONE!!!!
his # is 985-384-6914 out of Morgan City, LA. He will also ships to you!

Re: Sick Lincoln

Ive had the same issues....seems to me that 8010 (70+) has to be fresh or dry, we ran into a chit batch on the last 2 jobs, just wont hold the puddle, at 3 and 9 o'clock ( and with 42", seems your there a'lil longer, hehehe) I dont fight it , get another box and chit can what you got, thier furnish'in than furnish!! Seen good welders lose there job over fightin that rod on a bad batch, that is first and fore most. Ive got a '07 300 D, my hearts still with my 'ol red face, but I wont go back to it. Ive had good luck running a small stripper right down the center before you cap, damn near look like the weld would be to tall if you went to cap it, just from say 2 - 4 o'clock. Then walk over it, its all in YOUR way you lay it down. Hard to say chicken peck'in on this p/c, I dont whip 70+ rods, kinda run em like L/H but down hill ?, got looked out on a low cap due to whipping the rod and near never whip'em now, maybe near the bottom, thats it. Had a 'ol bastard tell me about the same time, ( Day'm son, how you gonna get fast weld'in by whipp'in that rod? Yer back'in up all the time!) Anyway, I spray the rod on, you can do it with the 200 too, and you wont hang nothin up in the cap, its just 1104 ...unqualified xray techs are the real pain in the ass..Anyway, nothin to look at but here is some .900 wall 42" on the Rex line...

Re: Sick Lincoln

Personal opinion here, take it as such. Watch how much you move chit around, the last bro -in-law I had on the 42" got rid of his 200 because so much chit was changed around, we could never get things back to normal. Again , just an opinion, Ive been around my share of machines, your not going to but 9000 amp brushes in a 200 and become a majical iron slinger/filler, LoL. Sounds to me that the puddle isnt right, with my 300, the arc force moves the rpm around 150 from 1 10 on the setting. Keeping all that in mind, from 4 to 6 on the dial is wet to dry on the puddle. Every 200 I have owned had payed for its self many years ago, the issue I have always had was the slaup in the linkage, put this together with moving the rpm around 40 or more rpm which is not alot, the puddle is sure to be different everytime you light-up. Then through out side temps , etc.etc. , some thoughts....

Re: Sick Lincoln

I bought a 200D back in July 08. Before that I had a 76 sa200, which got me run off a job. Damn thing wouldn't cap worth a crap no matter what I did. Traded that turd in on the 200D and haven't had any problems capping since. Best thing I did for myself in a while! Love the hell out of the 200D.
