Century 125gs Welder Parts
complaints whatsoever with the Century. I would still have it if I hadn't
gotten a great deal on the Lincoln at an auction.
Century was apparently bought out by Clore Automotive a couple of years ago
and they shut down the old Century Web site so that may be why you can't
find much about them. You can find a few manuals on the Clore site at:
Search for 'welder' in the Technical Document Search window. Unfortunately
I can't find the 125gs in the list so they may have discontinued it.
Century welders are often rebadged with other brand names. Sears sells a
few of theirs with their own color scheme, etc. I've also seen an ESAB that
was obviously a rebadged Century, probably the 155gs.
Century 130 Mig Welder Settings
One difference of note between the Century and other MIG's is that the
Century uses a gun with a gas valve built into the trigger instead of using
a solenoid in the welder like most others.
If the Lincoln you're looking at is the 100Amp welder (MigPak 10, WeldPak
100, etc.) it probably isn't worth the extra money for the Lincoln. The
Century uses a Tweco gun so parts are easy to find. They're both
transformer machines with a switch to select which voltage tap you're using.
There are aluminum kits available for both although the Century kit will
probably be harder to find but you need to read prior threads from this
group before you try and weld aluminum with such a small unit. All but the
thinnest of aluminum sheetmetal takes quite a bit more power than either of
these machines will put out.
Go to google.com, click on the 'Groups' tab and search for 'MIG welding
aluminum' and spend a bit of time reading up on the subject before you buy
something you regret.
OTOH, if the Lincoln is the SP-135T or SP-135+ (previously the SP-125
series) it's a bit more welder than the Century or the smaller Lincoln. It
still probably won't be much good for aluminum but it is a more powerful
welder. The T version has voltage taps like the Century and cheaper
Lincoln. The + version has variable voltage and is more expensive than the
'I'm not grown up enough to be so old!'
