Eastwood MIG Welder 175 Amp with Spool Gun

Product Review (submitted on June 29, 2012):

After 29 years in the steel fabrication and welding trade. I am very impressed with this machine. I have used many different machines from Lincoln dc 655s to miller 110 units, and this little jewel works perfectly. I have been looking for a small Mig unit for my home but have found that most all small Mig units I have used just do not put out the amps they say. At full power this 175amp unit is smooth and produces a perfect pass with ease and plenty of penetration. It also work equally good at low heat settings on light sheet material. The added spool gun is perfect for aluminum repairs and stainless. But prefer to run the stainless thru the standard gun.
There are a few little items that seem cheaply made like the wire nuts for the power cables. My suggestion to the end user is make sure that the cable connections are CLEAN and tight. This will reduce the possibility of the plastic cap on the cable nuts from over heating and melting. (Just an observation as I have not had this issue as of yet.)

With a very reasonable price to start with and great performance, I look forward to putting this machine thru the test of time. Over all I give it a 2 thumbs up!
Great Job Eastwood! Very Impressed!!!!
