Looking for pictures of your welding machines

I’ve been looking through my visitor logs and have noticed a few people arrive here looking for pictures of old welders. Unfortunately, due to a hard drive that crashed, i lost a good deal of pictures that i’d accumulated over the years – different welders, welding rigs, jobsites, fab areas, interesting equipment, project plans, things you’ve built, etc.

With that said, I think it would be great to build up a repository of vintage welders with their specifications. If i can find enough quality pictures, i’ll start posting them along with any other information i can find out about them.

Another cool thing would be to have a section devoted to rig trucks. I’m always amazed at some of the clever ideas you guys come up with when you’re gearing up your trucks. The same thing goes for anything you’ve built. Maybe a tool you’ve made to make your job easier, or just something that you’ve built – trailers, bbqs, anything made of metal.

If you have any pictures related to welding – especially vintage welders and rig trucks, projects, neat stuff, anything really – and you’d like to see them put to good use, i’d be very happy to post them here. To do that just send me a message through the contact form, or email them to me at (stickwelddotcom (at) yahoo (dot) com). If you send anything, it’d be great if you could tell me about the picture and any relevant information that you might have about it. Also, let me know if you’d like your name and email posted with the picture.

Just some random thoughts/ideas. If you’ve got any suggestions for something that you’d like to see or changes, i’d be happy to hear them.

    Hi Rowdy, thanks for the compliment!

    If you could send some pictures, we could probably give you a better idea of which machine it is. There were many of these welders made, and often they were very similar. If it’s got a 4 cylinder engine, chances are good that it’s an sa 200.

    Without seeing it, it’s really hard to know which one it is, and at best i can only guess.

    In any event, good luck.

    I think this is a great idea!

    By the way, I was wondering if you might know, I have what looks like a lincoln 200, but the paint on the macine is black… and it appears to be factory paint on it. Is there anyway someone could tell me the years these machines were produced…. I cant read the plate on it anymore.
