Personal Work Still Needs Top Quality

Welding is usually thought of as something that happens in big, industrial settings, but the reality is, it’s a repair and construction technique that has a place in all walks of life. It’s not just big companies on huge projects that benefit from welding, small repair jobs on a farm get a big boost from welding, and even personal projects can use a welder.
That’s why it’s important, especially for the livelihood of a farm, or the needs of an artisan or craftsman that results are still consistent, reliable and of the highest quality. Just because something is not being welded as part of a ship or a building, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t a real negative impact if the job isn’t done well. Lincoln has always looked at the needs of big jobs and small jobs, and they have an answer for this too.

Lincoln’s Personal Touch

Lincoln Electric has been working closely with America’s heavy industry businesses for over 100 years. Over all that time, they’ve paid close attention to what the needs were for a job, what kind of results were needed in what timeframe. They they worked hard to improve existing techniques and technology so that skilled tradesmen could work better, faster and safer without compromising on the final result that matters so much at the end of the day.
Lincoln is still committed to that professional vision even today, but they understand that all jobs are important, no matter what the scale. A small repair facility still needs to maintain quality for its customers, and a farmer working the field needs to know that if something needs to be welded, the job only needs to be done once to be done right. For these people, Lincoln has the Power MIG 256 MIG Welder.

Flexibility for You with a MIG 256 MIG Welder

The Lincoln K3068-1 Power MIG 256 MIG Welder is the perfect answer for people that need good results on smaller projects that come in a durable, quality package. It’s an especially good welder for people that may still be learning, as it has a more forgiving arc thanks to the diamond core technology that is one of the mainstays of Lincoln welding products. This unit can be used on mild steel with gas, or by using a flux core wire.
For ease of the use, the Power MIG 256 comes with easy to read and use digital controls that let you preset voltage and wire feed speed. When in use, the actual voltage is displayed for you to keep track of. It’s also got a generous reach, with a Magnum Pro Gun cable that stretches out 15 feet. It comes with Copper Plus contact tips that increase efficiency and tip life with larger diameter tips and higher mass to improve heat dissipation.
