Rack It Up:  Multi-Operator Rack Systems for Construction and Shipbuilding
Rack image (click to view larger image)Rack systems are ideal for grouping several inverter power sources in a portable industrial-grade package.  Lincoln Electric racks are constructed of heavy gauge square tubular steel to ensure long life, yet maintain an extremely compact size. 
  • One easy connection allows power sources to be connected with one primary power drop.
  • Power sources are factory installed and wired to the main power distribution panel.
  • Individual fuses provide overcurrent protection for each power source.
  • Overhead lifting eyes, fork lift slots and heavy duty optional casters provide ease of portability.
How I Did It: Serving Bar (so, what'll you have?)
Bar 1 image (click to view larger image) Bar 2 image (click to view larger image)
Alex Lock of Altamont, Illinois built this serving bar using his Lincoln Electric POWER MIG® 255 wire feeder welder (current model is POWER MIG® 256).
The frame is 1 x 1 inch steel tube that was wrapped on three sides with corrugated metal.  The 30 x 72 inch top is stainless steel and has a 1 inch rolled edge.
Wood shelves in the back provide plenty of storage.
The above project images and descriptions have been published to show how individuals used their ingenuity for their own needs, convenience and enjoyment. Only limited details are available and the projects have NOT been engineered by the Lincoln Electric Company. Therefore, when you use the ideas for projects of your own, you must develop your own details and plans and the safety and performance of your work is your responsibility.
