Eastwood MIG Welder 135 Amp is rated 4.6799 out of 5 by 278.
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 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 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 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 The best welder for 300$ I bought this welder about a month ago and as soon as I got it I tried it building a meat smoker. It just works great. The sheet metal I was using was pretty thin and I could really pin point the right amount of heat and wire speed to get a very good looking and strong weld. Two weeks ago I replaced my rusted out fenders on my car and it also worked really well. I'm very satisfied with the adjustment, portability. The only thing that "broke" so far is the thin plastic cover where the labels are. I left the welder in my car for 2-3 hours and I guess it was too hot, the label warped, but no biggie, still 100% satisfied with the welding part.

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 mig 135 UPDATE WITH GAS i was finally able to add gas...followed the chart printed inside the door it was a very good starting point ... i got pretty good using flux core i could get the dime look beads...but using the gas shield with the suppled wire my welds look fantastic there is no spatter ....welds look beautiful and are holding strong ...i even rate the sound it makes while welding a *5 * ...so far ive welded 1/8 angle iron and sheet metal ...and i have plenty of amps left for the thicker steels ... ill tryed to post a weld pic of my flux and gas.. flux pic has some spatter the gas pic i welded trying different motions just playing around i hope it loads up

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!

The MIG 135 and MIG 175 are tranformer machines. The MIG 250 is an inverter machine that can operate on 120/240V.

can this mig 135 be use even without the shield gas hook up?

Asked by: totoy
The MIG 135 can certainly be used with a flux core welding wire. This will eliminate the need for the shielding gas hook up.
