Default 1942 SAE 200 Shield-Arc Lincoln?

I canít figure out just what this is that Iíve come across, I have been looking all over the internet and researching and it seems like this is a Frankenstein machine from several years. Itís got a 6 cylinder Hercules behind it. Anybody know anything about something like this??

1942 is correct, hercules was offered as a powerunit option for the customer who usually bought more than 1 machine. Its not a frankenstein but a upper end production unit with fine turning arc controls. have u been here?

Is this out at Jim's auto salvage? He has some awesome stuff out there. I think that would be a good welder for pipeline.

the lincoln board is the best for vintage info. u'll find out what sae means compared to the regular sa machine. its a great vintage machine, but not practical for modern pipeline work.... those guys want the lightest machines 4 their big rigs. most run mounted customized sa200's.

No it’s not out at Jim’s, if it was you would have to pry it out of his cold dead hands!! Haha. I’m good friends with him, and ya, he’s got some really cool stuff out there. I found this out on a ranch when I was fixing some equipment for a guy. I did my time pipelining in ND,MT, and WY, I want to restore this machine with my boys and keep it around my shop for use

I can’t figure out why I can’t find another picture of this machine anywhere on the internet. There’s gotta be more out there, if anyone finds another please share it

What a great find and project. Hope you can get it back to your workshop and restore it back to life again. It just might even earn it's own keep one day.

Back in the 70's I needed a portable arc welder, primarily to take care of equipment breakdowns in the field. I really thought I hit paydirt when I stumbled upon an old Hobart with a 4 cylinder Hercules engine on it, trailer mounted, too. I bought it for cheap and brought it home. I made a whole host of repairs to the machine, then at long last it was running and welding properly. But every time I went to use it, one more thing went boing (there is a limitless supply of these things, no matter how many you fix). So I would work like crazy to get the welder going so that I could get the dozer of the grader or the truck working again. Of course all the time spent working on the welder was time without pay. Finally I had enough. I said to myself, I need a welder to work on machines, not a welder to work on when machines are broken. I sold the old Hobart and bought a six month old Hobart G213 with the TJD Wisconsin engine. Arguments could be had around which small portable welder is the best and why, all I know is that the G213 is still faithful to this day, starting, running, welding whenever I need it. Sure it is needing repairs now, I had to replace the gas lines (hoses) and there are some ceramic spacers I will have to reproduce but overall the welder does just as good a job today as it did in 1975. To this day it has never failed to start and never failed to weld. I hope you have better luck with your Lincoln than I had with the first Hobart.
