Yea I used 5/32 rod after rod just last week and did stop to let it cool at times but I tell you what I could almost fry an egg on that ^* transformer. Reached underneath for grins just too see how hot and man I was worried.

Don't have the the dough for a nice power plant 100% duty rig so I'll be careful with what I've got for now.

Its time to buy a Lincoln Idealarc 250.Weighs twice as much as your 225.Needs a 70 amp service.A new one costs 2 grand.Duty cycle is much better.

There a Lincoln Ideal arc on craigs list for 160 bucks asking price. AC/DC. If I were younger Id buy it.My DC converter cost 100 bucks to build.I had a lot of the parts on hand.You can put a small welder into failure mode if you push it.

Thanks 36 coupe,

I was lucky to get some parts cheap locally.

$50 for Weldanpower inductor choke (never used)
$60 for four 275A stud diodes
Free aluminum heat sink plates for diodes
Etc. etc

Well I have to hold on to the money right now, times are getting tuff for somes of us...

For now I'll just keep the run time down and watch the temp.
I have a K type thermocouple 3" stainless probe that I'll thermally attach to the laminations and run the lead outside to read temps. I'll have to turn the welder off before connecting the probe since the mag field will cause erroneous measurements if not overload the meter input.

Take care,
