Hey folks.

I bought this welder from a fellow who was closing his shop.

I just got it home and it was almost dark so haven't had a chance to check it out completely.

It has what looks like a Wisconsin v-4 engine with one of the heads off. Needs to be put together basically.

Does anyone have some knowledge on this unit? It is an AC/DC so if I can put it together it will be pretty handy.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance,

Brad

Maybe it's my area, but there must be a gazillion of those old V4 Wisconsins still putting along. Of course there are 3 gazillion in fence rows, in pieces in a shed, etc. Parts aren't all that hard to get. Lots easier and less expensive than Onan parts for example. Personally, I'd be tickled to have a rig like that!

Hello Brad Buchanan,

Nice score! Those Wisconsin are tough engines. I have a single lung on my splitter, guessing age about 1944, with a crank.
Made many chips since the early eighties. First
cylinder was 14" hence the 4 by 4,

Guido

That one must have come off Noah's Arc. As far as spare parts,I doubt if you could find a quart of paint to fit it. Those old Wisconsin parts are like gold to. Never really had too good of luck with those old hay baler engines. Have fun with your project,but I'd hate to try and pay the bills with that one.

Geez, you are a bit hard on my poor welder before I even get to work on it!

To be honest if I had to weld to put bread on the table I would have a new ranger or some such sitting on the truck.

Just curious who is older, you or my welder? :)

Brad,That's a good question and I am not sure I have the answer. I was born in 1950. The welder could be a little older but not much. The first engine drive I ever had was a Lincoln SA 200. It was an old sucker too.Early 50's I'd say. I have 4 engine drives now. 2 Miller Big 40s, a Bobcat and a Lincoln 250 with all the bells and whistles. MIG, TIG, and Stick. It is my favorite.

It would be much better if that engine had a starter on it.

Hey Dick.

It DOES have a starter on it. It is that ropey, windey, knuckle buster thing on the front!

I'm retiring soon after 41 years working at Lincoln and I have never seen one of the V-4 models. That's probably from the 50s.

Hey Mike.

You must have had an interesting career there. I still have the first brand new welder I ever bought, An AC225 buzzbox.

I am thinking that it is at least that old. Kinda styled before roundish things went out of vogue (that time).

Brad

We're still making that 225. I started there in '73 and we were going crazy making 650's with 2-71s for the Alaska pipeline. I have a TJD that I completely rebuilt and a TFD that runs. Just nothing to use them on right now.

Most of the Alaska pipeline was welded with Hobart machines. One of the first jobs using the new DCC 353 P 350 amp CC/CV machines with CRC automatic MIG equipment. They also used older Hobart CC/CV models but I can't remember the model. Used to have a magazine with a big article on the Alaska pipeline. 650 amp Lincolns might have been used for sub-arc on elbows and stuff that could be rotated in a shelter. There's a picture of the X65 grade pipe in the Procedure handbook.

Hey Ryan.

It should be an interesting project, kinda like functional art.

That's a beauty! If you have the model number, you should be able to find the manual for it on the Lincoln site. I think Lincoln could tell you what year it is to. I'd guess from the 40's, maybe even earlier than that.

Thanks.

It kinda caught my eye probably because it is functional and the lines are pleasing to the eye.

I had a 1953 SA200 with copper windings. Mine had a Continental 4 cyl flathead and ran smoooooth! I never welded with a machine that put down a prettier bead! You will really like the way this old Lincoln welds. Like stickweld said, go to the Lincoln website, but on mine I went to a Lincoln distributor, and they copied one for me.

Hey John.

I am looking forward to working on it and using it!

I used an engine powered DC welder in the past and it was sweet. I will keep you guys updated every once in a while on progress.

Brad
