Dave Lankford has built three barbeque pits of the size pictured here and several smaller ones for family and friends. He uses a Lincoln® SP-135 115/120-volt wire feeder welder and has recently purchased the 208/230-volt model SP-175.
He hopes to build a pit for himself someday.
"I am sold on Lincoln products. Everything I did with my SP-135 and yet it is still going strong. I know the SP-135 was not made for the projects I put it through, but it worked flawlessly. I have not done anything to this machine except blow it out with my air compressor on occasions. People try to get me to look at Miller, but I refuse. The only brand I will purchase is Lincoln."
