    We bought one about 8 or 9 years ago and i cant kill it! I weld everything with the power all the way up and only turn it down for sheet metal. It has been a tuff lil SOB. Plus if you get good at welding with it you can weld anything with the miller lincoln or hobart... For $90 bucks and a roll of lincoln wire its not bad for smaller stuff. Its great to have for a backup just dont expect it to be a high dollar welder. I must have ran 30 or more 1lbs spools and as I said it just wont Fing die!!!!

    NR 211 .030 and I recommed the dual strap ground clamp too.

    On the same note I like a cheap welder. The basics are there for a 110 version with transformer and switches. If you dont like it in its stripped stages then hot rod it with timer delays, DC conversion, and extra 110 power outlets for lighting. lol! In the end its just a cheapo go have fun welder.

    We modify hot rods all day long why not a welder?:rolleyes:
