Lincoln Electric Selected as Welding Equipment Supplier of Syfy’s New Reality Show, Dream Machines, from Triage Entertainment
Dream Machines image (click to view larger image)Their motto is "Dream big. Build bigger," and the Parker Brothers deliver on that promise in a big way on Dream Machines, Syfy’s new reality show.
Dream Machines follows Florida-based brothers Marc and Shanon Parker as they take the most imaginative vehicles ever seen in movies, comic books and TV shows, and engineer them into on-the-road realities. There's no design challenge too outrageous – or even impossible – for the brothers to take on, and each week they'll stop at nothing to create these one-of-a-kind "dream machines" for their vast array of celebrity and collector clients.

The show's production company, Triage Entertainment, chose Lincoln Electric as its exclusive provider of welding equipment and personal protection gear, including VIKING™ helmets and jackets, gloves, caps and safety glasses from the Lincoln Electric Red Line™ Welding Apparel line.

How I Did It: Daisy Flyer
Daisy Flyer image (click to view larger image)
Mario Zajac built this wagon for his daughter.  The "Daisy Flyer" was custom built by Mario who made good use of his Lincoln Electric Weld-Pak® 3200HD wire feeder welder (current model is Weld-Pak® 140HD) during the fabrication process.
Mario reports the 3200HD is a great machine, but he is considering an upgrade to a POWER MIG® 216.
