Eastwood MIG Welder 135 Amp
Product Review (submitted on January 20, 2011):
I've wanted a mig welder for years but was put off by the cost of a decent mig welder. I started restoring an old Z car and decided to pick this welder up due to all the great reviews. This was my first time welding, and within a few minutes I was off and running. My first project was welding up some exhaust brackets which was very easy to do. Next, I worked on some 1/8 thick flat bar to make some custom bumper mounts and this welder did a great job. Thick stuff is very easy to put down pretty welds with good penetration. Sheet metal is a little trickier, but with about an hours practice on some scrap 22ga metal, I got it dialed in. I've made all kinds of body repairs, frame rail repairs, brackets etc.. with this welder. It's the best garage purchase I've ever made. Wire feeds smooth, with the infinitely adjustable voltage you can fine tune to get it just right (most sub $1000 mig's only have 4-6 voltage setttings). This welder is perfect for home shop use.
