Re: Old dog learns new trick...Welding!
Yes it is a good idea but it depends on how much welding you are doing and if it is steady or just spoting. Steady needs to cool spoting? It also depends on were you are welding outside gets plenty of air. This is were you have to be carefull with sheilding gass the wind blowes it away if it is strong. Also if it cold outside the gas will get sort of stiff and will not flow when it gets down to 30 degrees F. I have had my Lincoln SP100 for close to 30 years ( one of the first ones has a small tip you can't get any more) I have never had a problum with cool down...............Curt
