Eastwood MIG 250 Welder is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from best bang foe your buck Got to use this machine this weekend for a couple houra and it was flawless. I used the chart to set amps and speed and it was really close and only took a second to fine tune it once i started. Absolutely fantastic for the price. My only minor complaint is the leads are only 10' and i was woking on some farm equipment that was a bit larger so i just had to readjust a few times from start to finish. Very pleased with its performance so far and look forward to some more fabbing. Im no professional welder just farm repair and hunting stands and little odd and ends, tgis machine should exceed all of my abilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great customer service, stand behind their product Wrote a review in the combo area, but could not update. So this unit really worked well for 8 months, then started to have issues. Sent an email at 9:30 that night and hoped I would get a response in 2-3 days. Not only did they respond in 12 hours, not try and tell me it was my fault, they had Fedex picking my faulty welder up the next day. New welder was shipped and now all set. So not only is this a good price for what you get, but they actually stand behind what they sell. That's something missing as of late. If you are worried about buying an import welder from these folks, as I was, don't be. Sure did the unit have issues, yes, but their response was outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product for weekend warriors I purchased the 250 and instantly put it to use building a custom welding cart for it. I incorporated a radio flyer wagon, racing cart slicks, and casters on the front. I welded several different thicknesses of metal so far on the cart and I am very pleased with the product. the flow of the weld looks great. I purchased this welder because my higher cost mig was stolen and I have a project truck to start. Cant wait to start boxing the frame as soon as materials arrive. I will be ordering the spool gun and a eastwood brand plasma soon. No more high dollar name brands here..

Do you need special tips or anything else to weld with flux core?

Asked by: Tdm91
The only thing you need to do is pick the correct size tip for the wire you are running.

Will the spool gun I have for a Miller 211 and Hobart 210 work on this welder

Asked by: Rick M
We have never tested any of our welders with spool guns from other brands for compatibility.

Is this able to feed flux cored wire without the use of a notched Drive roller, I noticed on other models the drive roller is always notched. My understanding is when using flux cored with really tight Drive rollers the core will crack

Asked by: M Lancaster
This unit can run flux core without the knurled drive roller.

Does Eastwood carry the replacement parts necessary to repair these units? Is there a parts diagram available? Just comparing this to Miller 211.

Asked by: TrevorM
We do have the the internal control board for this unit if you were to need them. We do not have a parts diagram at this time for these units.

Will this unit run aluminum wire off the spool/through the included liner?.. or aluminum welding is only made possible with the optional spool gun?

Asked by: groberts101
Aluminum welding would only be possible through the use of the spool gun.

In many of the reviews the talk about the gas line breaking due to it being plastic on other units. Is it plastic on this unit?

This unit has a metal drive motor and housing area.
