Question about TIG Welders

1 Answer

I need to find a manual for a Craftsman welding stabilizer

I went to Sears parts for this unit and found that while they have a few generic parts, they no longer supply the manual.

Obviously Craftsman products are supplied by another company, possibly they could be contacted if I knew who they were. Please suggest a source.

Thanks

I think most of the older Craftsman welders were made by Century which is now owned by Lincoln Electric Company. If this is a wire feed welder you adjust the wire feed speed so that the arc sounds like eggs frying, the voltage setting (if any) will depend on the thickness of the material you're trying to weld. If it's a stick welder there will just be a current range control that you set depending on the thickness and type of material you're welding.

Rank me if this helped,

Has anyone ever welded at part that has been coated with phosphate and the finished is black oxide. I am using tig for the welding process. Clean the area where I am welding, used E702-S and 4130 fillers...


If you got grease or oil inside the metal you can forget about the welding with argon. I did meet some gears in such state, very few of them I manage to weld after heating them red twice or three times until no more oil come out of the metal and the rest of them turn out to be a failure. Good luck

The F 1 circuit breaker, manual reset is tripping not allowing it to weld. Could it be something as simple as the reset itself


Rated Output at 20% Duty Cycle 150 A at 16 VAC
150 A at 16 VDC Welding Amperage Ranges AC/DC 10 - 165A Max. Open-Circuit Voltage 80 V Amps Input at Rated Output AC-230V: 21A
DC-230V: 23A You need to configure the machine to specifications of the material you going to weld.That is :
-The material of the job
-And the proper amperage to use for the material.
-For aluminum you will use A/C
-Stainless Steele / Chrome Molly D/C

Aluminum MIG Welding
1. The best feeding of wire for aluminum is done with a spool gun. If you can't use a spool gun, use the shortest gun possible and keep the gun as straight as possible. Use Argon only for shielding gas. Only use a push gun technique when welding aluminum. 2. If you are having feeding problems, one thing you can try is a contact tip that is one size bigger than your wire. 3. The most common wire type is ER4043 for all-purpose work. ER5356 is a stiffer wire (easier to feed), and is used when more rigid, higher-strength weld properties are needed. 4. Clean the aluminum before welding, to remove the oxide layer. Use a stainless steel wire brush used only for cleaning aluminum. 5. Fill the crater at the end of the weld to avoid a crack. One way to do this is to dwell in the weld pool for a second at the end of the weld.

I have a miller microwave 200. what settings should i use for aluminum welding? dcep, ac, dcen? i'm using a3/32'' tungsten and trying to weld on 1/4'' alum plate. the weld is not turning out to be a smooth...


I think you mean you have a Miller Synchrowave 200.

Typically, you would want to use AC below about 250 amps. In this case (to keep it simple), use AC, adjust your balance to about 4, use an 1/8" pure tungsten, pure argon at about 20CFh, and set the panel at 170amps to get things started. For general purpose, use 4043 filler.

Now - these are just generic settings, but they will get you going.

Hi, starts to weld fine after a few seconds hi


It sounds like you need to change out your SCR chip on your motherboard; Miller makes one that i have installed on all our 350xl's, I don't have the number on hand but i can get it for you tomorrow.

Hook up


I think I can help you do this, let's start with the general and you can ask questions if we don't cover everything you need.

The HF251D connects to the welding machine using 3 cables, you connect the Electrode terminal on the welding machine (the Lincoln) to the Electrode In terminal inside the HF251. Connect the Work terminal on the Lincoln to the Work In/Out inside the HF251, also connect the work (ground) clamp of your torch to this terminal. Be careful to select the correct size cables for the maximum current you intend to weld with.

The 3rd cable is the gray 14 pin round control cable that comes out the back of the HF251, it needs to be plugged into your Lincolns RMT14 socket. You'll also need to make sure that the Lincoln is set for remote control, this is usually a switch on the front panel. I'm pretty sure that the remote control cables have a standard pin layout, but we can check this by comparing the specs in both owners manuals.

After that you connect the torch and gas bottle to the HF251, start the Lincoln, and TIG weld until you're happy.

I've got a manual for the HF251 and can get a shop manual for it if we need it. What I'm not sure about is your Lincoln - what model is it exactly?

regards,
Carl

Thermal Arc Welder 150 GTSW went ''pop''


You badly need a service manual, you might be able to get one at the Thermal Arc home page.
Since it blew the input power breaker and let off a bit of smoke we'll take as given that something in there shorted. Inverter welders like this have a rectifier section, then an inverter section, then another rectifier section before the torch. I'd bet a little money that what went pop was one or more of the SCRs in the rectifier section. You really need the manual to do anything useful to this machine, pay particular attention to the repair sections where they talk about cold checks before powering the machine on again, it'll save you hours of replacing parts.
