This is my first post though I have been reading the posts on the forum for sometime. I am a retired hobbyist metalworker/welder. My equipment consists of a Lincoln AC tombstone welder, Lincoln AC/DC tombstone welder, Lincoln Weld-Pak 100 wire welder (flux core), carbon arc torch, 14" cutoff saw, Hypertherm 350 plasma cutter, ring roller, table top bender, drill press and an assortment of power tools.
Some of my metalworking projects include two canoe trailers, modifications to utility trailers, double bike carrier for the back of my travel trailer, double spare tire carrier that mounts under the travel trailer, club sign stand (see attachment), cart for my wire welder, etc.
The sign stand is made from a old hammock stand. Most of the metal is 2" round tube. It can be taken apart and breaks down in to seven pieces for storage/transportation. This stand will hold our Good Sams Chaper Sign and four flags.
This is with out a doubt the best welding forum I have been able to find and has provided me with a great deal of useful information.
All of my wire welding experience has been with my Weld-Pak 100 using flux cored wire.
What would I gain by converting to gas and using bare wire?
What would be the best gas to use?
Can the AC tumbstone welder function as a power source for some sort of Tig welding equipment? If so, what and where can I purchase it?
Any and all responses will be appreciated.
