Lincoln sponsors winning Aeroshell Aerobatic Team
It all boils down to energy management, according to Gene McNeely, Slot Pilot/Right Wing for the Aeroshell Aerobatic Team, “On a hot day, we don’t have the luxury of excess horsepower to compensate for high density altitude. The key is knowing when to make power changes and by how much.” The audience at an aviation show is oblivious to this as the four Aeroshell planes fly in perfect unison, as if they were attached to each other. Crowds around the country flock to see this talented team and its “old birds” perform. More
Learn to weld with Lincoln and Two Guys Garage
In this episode of Two Guys Garage, Dave Bowman visits the NASCAR Technical Institute (NTI) where Lincoln welding expert Joe Kolasa explains how to prevent the three most common MIG welding mistakes. What are they? Watch the show!

How-to Project: gas cylinder clamping system
This how-to project was submitted to the James F. Lincoln Foundation a few years back (not that many years – the welder just happened to use black & white photos), but we still find it to be a practical use of our welding machine. More


What is Custom Arc?

Many pipeline welders manually adjust their engine RPM to suit their personal preference, application or conditions. Why? Because adjustments to engine RPM change the OCV (Open Circuit Voltage) to deliver more or less heat input to the arc. The result is a softer or more digging arc. In response, we developed Custom Arc – an easy-to-use heat input control that can make all the difference to discriminating pipe welders.
Custom Arc is now available on:

  • Pipeliner™ 200 G and Classic® 300 G (General Motors®).
  • Pipeliner 200 D and Classic 300 D (new Kubota® engine models only).
