Title: question- welding, is it 110V or 220V?
Post by: macsak on December 09, 2013, 06:52:02 AM
i guess this is something we need to find out first

next question-
are welding machines able to be powered by the small, portable generators?

What needs to be welded at the range? Target holders can be made off site and brought in.

They come in both voltages. 220v is more powerful for larger jobs, most medium size gennys have at least one 220v outlet. If the holders can be made off site it would be a great time saver.

Mac PM me or text me tonight.

I have a source for a Welder/Generator :thumbsup:
My labor too of course :shaka:

In a related area, does anyone have one of those laser levels we could use to line up the lanes when we replace the target holders? I'm thinking this would be a time saver and give us accurately lined up targets. Heck of a lot easier than trying to snap lines.

wow, there's something that can do that for 100 yards?

i just thought of another thing-
if they are going to bring in fill dirt, they will have to remove all the target holes FIRST

Yes, of course the usual rules apply, low light=better visability, etc. The only thing that I can think of that would be better is if we have a member with survey equipment and the knowledge to use it. Maybe something C&C could provide?

Maybe lane numbers can be incorprated into the frame holders. It would certainly shorten target set up. Maybe just a small plate attached to the holder with. The lane number written in weld bead.

I got survey equipment to help out with this.  I can borrow a transit and rod from my union training center.  It's not the fancy digital theodolite, but it can make a straight line.  We got a 100' tape measure too and can layout whatever need be.

Depending on the day we can probably weld them up at my shop, then bring them over. Otherwise, I have 2 MIGs and a stick welder that are 110v that I can bring out to the range. No generator, though.

I have one of those walking wheel measuring things. The wheel is small but I've measured grass with it before. Goes up to 1000ft.

I also have a very old survey transit but no tripod or pole for it. I know I can see through it but I have no idea if it still works for measuring.

Ross and Kala, you guys rock!
 BTW Mac, I'm confirmed on the airless spray rig, I'll let you know later about the pressure washer.

I too can get some welding done in my shop. Depending on the day I could (possible) bring out the company welder on a trailer (diesel) .

I have a small stick welder, I am pretty sure it can be powered by a small generator for light work.  If we can get ahold of larger machines then I can weld any larger items, no prob.

hopefully the city will take care of this
but if not, we know who to contact
