Lincoln TIG, 3 or so Arc and 180Amp MIG
Purchased at auction, same units I learnt to weld on (college auction).
Problem is I don't have 3 phase power where I live and I'm now contemplating letting a friend use it in his farm shed (he would use it on his race car) where he has 3 phase (415 volt) and I can go over there and do any welding jobs I may have (which wouldn't be big, just small aluminium weld jobs for myself).

If I had the finances I'd be buying a smaller single phase AC/DC TIG for home use, one day maybe........

square wave 200, power mig 180 and ac 225 tombstone, I had another tombstone so that I would have one for each grandson but I have accumulated to much stuff and had a guy at work who could use it so I passed it on, it was a 72 model. My wish list has a MP210 on it and a Lincoln engine drive.

Lincoln buzz box AC, Everlast 160 DC
I have a 225 AC buzz box, stick welder sometimes called a Tombstone. The voltage dial takes 15 to 25 amps a jump.

Lincoln TIG 175
Lincoln Square Wave TIG 175 purchased around 1999 for my locomotive construction and small jobs around the house. It's been a great little machine, capable of doing work heavier than it is designed for when used with care. My largest project pictured--my locomotive boiler. 330 pounds dry.

Had a 225 AC, moved up to a 225 AC/DC, finally moved up to this fine machine. Each one made my welds better, or at least improved my welding ability.

That is a nice build, especially having a water injector pump.

@Lis2323 has more Lincoln welders inside and outside of the shop than all of the LWS's in the 25 surrounding cities near me.. combined. What a collection of red classics!
