Eastwood MIG Welder 135 Amp is rated 4.6442 out of 5 by 312.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgraded from Lincoln 135 I LOVE this welder! Infinity adjustable wire feed and amperage make this for a very capable machine. I 100% belive this is better than my Lincoln mig. I have never had an issue with wire feed, knobs not working, or any of the issues listed by some of the bad reivews, sounds like they got defective units. I have used this to fabricate a ton of exhausts, repair body panels, make a large metal sculpture. This thing does it all. If you are not getting enough heat sounds like you have a bad ground cuz this thing has no problem 1/4in plate. Personally I never need any more power than that. Even when fabricating engine mounts. Bottom line is I would but this again and am looking into eastwood TIG welders as a cheaper entry level option.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value I purchased this welder about a year and a half ago and have welded a variety of thicknesses of metals excellent results. Once I got the speed and heat dialed in, with a 75/25 mix shielding gas as well, it makes welding as thin as 20 gauge steel fairly easy with a bit of patience and practice. It has yet to trip my 120v circuit which my 5hp, 60 gallon air compressor will occasionally blow. The only complaint I have, is that recently the plastic gun portion of the welder has cracked. I'm not especially rough with my tools and it's not something that a little electrical tape couldn't fix, but I figured it was worth mentioning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still Operating After 1 Year# Iv'e been working on numerous project since purchasing the 135 a year ago. It's possible to receive a unit that is defective, it happens with any brand. Had a rear fender bender. It was declared a total loss. The estimate was $4000 but the insurance company settled for 2K. Never worked on autobody before, but my fab skills came in handy. I used the 135 again and it worked perfectly. Now to add a bit of bondo and I'm good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MIG135 purchased the mig 135 and i'm totally happy with its capabilities. i have friends that give me a lot of guff for not buying one of the brands that charge 3x more, but after a few reviews on this machine and the review from popular mechanics i made my choice. it does everything i need it to do. the price is right on point for military retired guys like me on a budget. the only con i have is that it didn't come with a knurled fluxcore wheel. i tried using 0.30 flucore wire and the provided smooth groove wheel was not grabing the fluxcore wire to well. the last thing i want to do is put too much pressure on the fluxcore wire since it's tubular in design. quick fix, i ordered a knurled wheel otherwise great little machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value...Outstanding Welder I originally purchased a used Mig welder (Clarke) to weld some patch panels on a old truck I am restoring. The welder gave me nothing but problems so I did some research and ordered the Mig 135 from Eastwood and it does an amazing job. I had never welded with a mig welder prior to the used one and it had been 35 years since I had done any welding to speak of. But once the Eastwood Mig 135 arrived I was welding nice looking beads again with little practice. The build quality of the Eastwood is very good and the three year warranty gives me piece of mind. Those coupled with the low price makes this one of the best Mig Welding values out there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great welder, great price I've owned this welder for about a month now and am thrilled with it so far. After using a Harbor Freight 90A welder for a few weeks I knew I needed something better. I tried out my friend's Lincoln Handy Mig, and was just about sold on it, but the infinitely variable voltage control was what really sold me on the Eastwood. Now after using the MIG135 for a few weeks, I honestly feel I made the better choice. So far I've used it to build a trailer, welding mostly .090" and .120" wall steel using .030" flux core wire, and I couldn't be happier with the results. I'm looking forward to adding gas and trying it out with some .023" wire on some thin sheet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible little machine I purchased the 135 mig a month ago, and I'm very impressed with its performance! I've welded for 25yrs, with almost every brand of mig available in the USA, and I'm impressed! I welded with it for over an hour solid, on high, on 1/4" mild steel, flat, vertical, and overhead, and never did reach its duty cycle nor did it hit temp overload. Has a great sizzling sound, lays beautiful beads, just overall does wonderful! Only drawback is, the description says it welds up to 1/4", and it will, it just won't penetrate well on 1/4". I'd be safe to say its limit is 3/16", but for the price, I'm not complaining at all! Worth every penny, period!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent welder! Bought the 135 to work on my 66 Mustang restoration. Has been about 10 yrs since I welded and was a bit nervous. I plugged it in, ran a few test beads, and was off working on the car. This machine brought back my confidence. Never used flux wire, went right to gas. Set-up was super easy and the machine operates perfectly. Only complaint I have is length of the power cord. My car is on jack stands and the cord isn't long enough to move around and still have it plugged in. I had to make my own 15' 8ga extension cord (which I was told by an EW tech was ok) and it works fine. Don't pass this by. Eastwood hit a home run with this one!

I recently pulled the plug out of a socket and noticed the bottom prong (ground round prong) broke. How would I go about replacing that? 

Asked by: Vic1990
You can go to the nearest hardware store and buy a NEMA 5-15R Plug. The plug that you buy should have instructions that indicate where which wires go where.

What is the min and max thickness of aluminum this welder can weld with the spool gun? What would be the settings? Is it even worth it on a 135? 

Asked by: Kgc5034
It is possible to use the spool gun with the MIG135; it takes the same spool gun that the MIG175 uses. As far as a minimum thickness, i would no recommend attempting to weld thinner than 1/16" and not thicker than 1/8".
