I have a 64 Impala that I am restoring.using the Mig welder and Versa 40, I easily replaced my rotted floor pans after a few minutes of instructions from a friend. I was also able to modify some rock sliders for my Jeep very easily using the plasma cutter and welder. looking forward to fiture purchases ( as I learn) Thanx for the great customer service slso when replacing my guage!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mig welder! With 38 years maintenance welding experience in a steel mill, I have to say this machine is really worth the money! It worked perfect right out of the box! I liked the packaging and the general layout. My only issue is that I wish it had a purge control but that's no big deal. Just a perk that I'm used to. Pull the trigger and do some runout and it's purged. Great machine well worth you trying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Machine so far I've only had my machine for a little over a month. I've had very good luck running with gas. I picked up a couple spools of acid core and I have no doubts it'll perform with no problem. My buddy picked up a machine 5 years ago, paid 4 X the cost of the Eastwood, and you can't tell the difference when welding with them. He said, "where was Eastwood when I needed my machine?"

Would this welder work to weld cracks on Aluminum rims..?Of not,what welder would I need to repair cracked aluminum rims??

Asked by: Jowi9813
This welder will be able to weld up to 1/4 thick aluminum. Another great option for repairing wheels is our TIG 200 AC/DC or TIG 200 Digital as both can also cleanly weld aluminum.

Just tried putting the .23 wire in the machine and I can't get it to pull through the torch. The drive roller just spins and doesn't pull the wire at all. Ideas what is wrong? What setting for the .2 wire on the tensioner? .30 wire works fine.

Asked by: stroker
This sounds like you simply need to switch the drive roller to the correct groove. The machine comes set up with .030 wire and the drive roller on the same side.

Eastwood's MIG 175 Welder

As a professional or weekend enthusiast, you can now get industrial-quality features in a hard-working, affordable MIG welder! Our R&D guys designed the Eastwood MIG 175 Welder (12012) for steel and aluminum to produce excellent bead quality and capabilities that match - and even exceed - the other, more expensive MIG welders for sale! We've been helping DIYers do the job right since 1978 and developed this welder for those who want to do quality work without leaving home. If you've been in search of steel or aluminum welders for sale, the MIG 175 is a versatile solution for both new and experienced welders.

All-Around Aluminum MIG Welder

The MIG 175 welder is designed for the professional or weekend enthusiast. The welder comes complete (except for the gas cylinder) and is ready to weld 24 gauge to 5/16-inch mild steel and stainless steel. By attached the free spool gun, you can also weld 14 gauge to 1/4-inch aluminum. This high-quality MIG welding machine has a 30 percent duty cycle at 135 amps and a 30-175 amp welding range, giving you the power and time needed for tough projects. It feeds wire at 58-471 inches per minute and has infinitely adjustable wire speed and heat settings. Anyone who has a 220-volt electrical outlet in their garage or shop can use this spool gun welder. Attaching an extension cord will let you bring the welder to the project instead of the other way around.

Precise Welding Control

The Amperage and output voltage can be controlled precisely to get the proper penetration required. Wire speed can be infinitely adjusted to gain proper wire fill in the weld pool. This unit has been compared to the leading U.S.-manufactured red welders with equivalent results at a fraction of the cost.

Spool Gun for Welding Aluminum

Many modern cars and trucks have aluminum parts, and you may also want to custom-fabricate parts from this material for a restoration. With the included spool gun, you can weld 14-gauge to 1/4-inch aluminum. Attach or remove it as needed for working on different parts and panels.

Precision Drive Motor

The drive roll mechanism, which is the heart of any MIG welder, is designed to our specifications and delivers flawless wire feed without skipping or slipping on the wire. This means you'll get a great puddle and solid welds without having to go back and "touch up" spots.

High-Value Welders from Eastwood
