Default conversion of lincoln welder

Hi guys, I have a lincoln 200 amp welder powered by a wisconsin vf4. Is there any way two convert the genny to put out 110v A.C. to use for the house? Is there any way to still use the welder and get 110V A.C. to run an angle grinder or other tools? Thanks for any help.

Isn't that an interesting response to the posting. I wonder if he's going to offer to send a cashiers check for more than the asking price, and have his local agent in the US arrange shipping, and would you please wire him the surplus funds from the purchase.

Re the Lincoln, most likely it can't be rewired to power a house since it has a commutator rather than slip rings, and is built to produce around 35 volts. Older Lincolns are pure DC machines, and the limited DC power available at the plug on the machine is produced by the exciter.

Thanks for the info. I picked up this set for $70.00. The engine had both heads removed, one bent valve, and a broken piston. But I received $30.00 worth of new parts with it and have located the rest for approx $120.00. I'm going out to do some more work on it later. Do you think there is any chance of finding a 110v powerhead to fit this engine? Thanks again, chuck
