Eastwood MIG Welder 135 Amp

Product Review (submitted on December 18, 2010):

I've owned a stick welder for 30+ years. I bought an old car to fix up over the winter and decided I needed a Mig. I looked at all brands and read everything I could find. Bought an Eastwood mainly because of price but also because Eastwood has a good reputation. I made the right choice. I had no problem learning to use the welder. Be prepared to spend another 100 bucks for the welding gas but you would have to buy it with any brand. I've welded 50 to 60 inches of seams on sheet metal and the guage hasn't moved so I guess the gas last a long time. The hand held face shield that comes with the welder is basically useless, get an auto-darkening helment. I can't compare this welder with any other brand because this is the only mig i"ve owned but I can't believe one without variable wire speed and variable amps could work this well. If you are looking for a mig for sheet metal work do yourself a favor and buy an eastwood. You will be glad you did.
