Eastwood MIG Welder 135 Amp
Product Review (submitted on March 25, 2012):
I have stick welded for many years and am looking forward to MIG. Videos and price sold me on Eastwood's MIG 135 over Chicago Electric and Hobart brands. I ordered on Friday and it showed up the next day - FANTASTIC service!! Unfortunately the unit they shipped me was dead on arrival. The highest voltage setting it barely causes a spark. The wire turns red hot and but it doesn't weld. Yes, the electrical and gas connections are all correct - it's really pretty simple and would be difficult to mess up. I left a voice message for tech support but I don't blame them for not calling me back on the weekend. I'll deal with it tomorrow, on Monday. I'm sure Eastwood will make it right, it's just very disappointing - especially for my 16 yr. old son who had his first MIG project all ready to go. If I have to pay return shipping on to get this corpse back to Pottstown, I guarantee there will be sparks flying then!
