View Full Version : Upgrading Lincoln 225C

I'm ready to upgrade to a Stickmate LX or Miller Thunderbolt AC/DC machine and was wondering if any vendors offered remanufactured stick machines?
I purchased a remanufactured Hobart 175 mig from Toolking and am happy with it but they do not list any rebuilt stick welders.

I would cimply check your local CraigsList for an AC/DC machine. I see them on there from time to time, so be patient.

The cost for a new stickmate machine is so competitive that it almost makes it a moot issue, I doubt there is a lot to be saved and these are so reliable they just don't need warranty or reman work.

I've never seen a stick welder die. we've got a lincoln ac225 at work that is 30 years old. It still works fine after all those years and it's never even been blown out with an air hose.
