Eastwood MIG Welder 135 Amp
Product Review (submitted on November 25, 2012):
This welder works very well for light duty welding. Bought it last year but just started really using it on my 66 Biscayne project. Last week the outer sheath of the nozzle fell off. It didn't come unscrewed, it separated from the brass threaded fitting, fell off, and will not stay on. Eastwood's customer support is sending me a new nozzle. I hooked it up to argon/CO-2 and welded away. It worked great even though I hadn't welded in 40 years. Today while welding a quarter panel in place I noticed my fresh cylinder was low, according to the gauge on the regulator. On closer inspection the needle on the gauge on the regulated side was all the way around to the stop. I checked the hose connection with soapy water to see if it was leaking and it wasn't, but something was leaking and I had lost almost a full cylinder of gas before I discovered it. The regulator is obviously defective. I'll tell Eastwood and I know they will replace it. They treat their customers very well. Thanks Eastwood. Oh and aside from the issues listed here the machine Works great.
