You've got an older Lincoln Idealarc 250 with what looks like a High frequency box on top? Also looks like an Everett(sp) chop saw and an SAE 400/300 Lincoln behind you in the welding picture? Is that a spray torch hanging up in the background too? Those are all great tools to have. Is the small MIG just for sheet metal?

You should see the other parts of George"s shop with the the overhead crane or another part with the mills and lathes. The best part is he know how to use them all. That garage is more fun than any place a wrench spinner is legally allowed to go to. I know because I have been there twice.

George, is repairing obscure part no longer made the bulk of your business? I've seen several of them on this site, as well as yours, and you do very well at it, but I was curious.

Stick,

You are about correct on most items, the

big lincoln is a 600 anp machine and it is

there to run the roller and front wheel welder.

In behind it there is a crank welder (from

standard crankshaft),both machines are sub-

arc. Have 2 sizes of small powder torches and

in the machine shop I have both wire spray and

powder spray (metalizing )systems.

I saw an SAF 600 sell at an auction several years ago for $150. I'm not sure if it was complete or not but it sure seemed cheap. I imagine it sucks the power pretty good.

Sure wish you lived closer to me so I could hang out on the days I'm not working and learn.......Over the years I learned alot from an old guy who had his shop about 5 miles from me. He was always my go to guy when I ran into something I couldn't do or didn't have the tools to do myself. I don't think I ever went into his shop and spent less than 2 or 3 hours just watching him work, and talking to him and learning as much as I possibly could about anything I could. It makes me feel good to see young guys like Lanse on here that are instrested in this kind of thing and are willing to ask and learn too.

JR,

Pronouncing it dead is the easy way out .

The corner store doesn't have one or any parts,

as it is a york engine made somewhere in the

early teens.

After it is welded then it needs to be bored

and sleeve made ane installed .
