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!!!!
