What is your experience with Lincoln SA-200 / 250 etc.?
As of 2019, I have bought 186 & sold 181 Lincoln pipeline welders & have refurbished over 121 of them. Most of them being SA-200 Shorthoods, Redfaces & Blackfaces, as well as plenty of SA-250 gas & diesel & some SAE-300/400's. I have spent many hours designing and making new products, sourcing parts and trouble shooting machines, learning from trial & error. One thing I've learned is to give the machine what it needs - do not skimp on parts or take shortcuts. You take care of it & it will take care of you. These machines are rugged, but need to be respected.
