Eastwood MIG Welder 135 Amp

Product Review (submitted on May 18, 2012):

I received my MIG 135 and went over it thoroughly before trying it...discovered a manufacturing flaw. The wire feed mechanism is held captive by two bolts that go through tabs punched into the chassis. The wire feed box was much narrower than the distance between the two tabs in the chassis....leaving one side flopping freely about with the provided screw too short to catch the tab. Dumb! I bought a longer screw and some washers to space it out, that fixed it right up (although I shouldn't have had to). The good news is that the welder has performed flawlessly both with gas and flux core. The wire feed is consistent, the arc is steady, and it has plenty of power for light projects. If you use the higher power levels though, especially with flux core, be sure to use a 20 amp circuit as it will blow the breaker on your 15 amp. Overall, good stuff and wood recommend it to anyone....just check it over before you fire it up.
