Solar Tracker

Solar Tracker
by Paul Roberts

Paul is a solar power enthusiast and decided to use his Lincoln Electric welders to build a solar tracker.

The solar tracker is made from square tubing and old 4-inch drill stem pipe.  Paul says it works perfectly and he saved about $4,000 by doing the project himself.

Paul owns three Lincoln Electric welders -- a Weld-Pak® 100 wire feeder welder, AC-225 stick welder and a 1988 Weldanpower® engine driven welder he recently restored.

Paul works in the medical field and likes doing backyard projects like the solar tracker.  Regarding the Weld-Pak® 100, Paul wrote "I love the little welder."
