New square wave 200

Postby Warrenh » Wed May 10, 2017 12:44 pm

So, I bought a new lincoln square wave for home and some small projects. I have only made a few welds with it but so far I'm impressed. I wanted it for aluminum and anodized aluminum mostly. I think it will do a great job once I get the settings dialed in.ImageImage

First post on the forum. I'm actually looking at this unit too I can get a square wave 175 for around $800 bucks right now. I was wondering what you think. I've read the post flow is quite an issue

Hey, I bought the same machine a while ago but my welds don't nearly as good as that. There must be something wrong with mine... :)

Agreed but that's some damned nice welding you did there.

Thanks. Do you ever do anodized?

I usually run 9 to 10 seconds anyway so I decided that 5 seconds more at 15 to 20 didn't make much difference. And I wanted to stay with blue or red. Lol

I love mine and hope one day I can produce work as good as yours, as they say it is a much better welder than I am.

CONGRATS AND ENJOY !!!
