Answer: 
I am a welder and i would be abel to weld one inch thick material with this ,but you must know what you are doing and it not so much how thick the the things your welding is it is how long you use the welder . say for example i would not want to weld continuously for say 2 hours on thick stuff . but this is true for all welders . weld for 10 minutes and stop welding for 5 minutes

Answer: 
The specs say it will weld from 24 gauge (0.024") to 3/16" (0.19")... If you know what you're doing, you might be able to stretch that a bit.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far So Good I have used the welder to build a Wood Burning Stove out of a sheet of 14 Gauge Steel. The welder worked good for this thinner steel and was able to make really nice welds. It worked just as good as the more expensive Lincoln welders I've used. I've used this on thicker angle iron to make a welding table and I had no problem making nice strong welds. February 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great little welder When i bought this welder was a little sceptical but when i opened it up and started it worked good but had to get new rods as for the ones it came with suck but after buying new rods welds came out perfect... this was perfect for getting under a vehicle and welding exhaust and little odds and ends jobs the best thing about it is you can get a hd extension cord and use it anywhere the cord reaches....would be perfect for someone with little to no experience aswell a handyman ive been welding for many years and have fallen in love with this little guy January 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excelent welding machine This 115v is really nice , excelent choice and price April 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to set up and use The set-up instructions were a little incomplete. There was a part left over after following the instructions. Not too difficult figuring out where it went. Once set up, it works well so far. A few youtube videos and I am learning. My first few welds failed, but it was because I was tenuous, using it more like a glue gun than a welder. Now that I've cranked the heat setting up to penetrate the thickness of the metal I'm working with the welds are much better October 8, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Has potential, but... I'm a beginner welder. Before buying this welder I got a Harbor Freight 90 amp flux core welder to test out the waters. After using that welder I wanted to upgrade so I got this welder. It appears to be a sturdy machine, but when I tried it out there were two main things that bugged me about it. 1) when feeding the wire through, the wire got stuck at the tip and wouldn't go through the contact tip. I guess I could have taken the contact tip out and then screwed it back on, but I would figure that it should go through without getting caught there. The wire ended up coiling up just past the wire feeder and was wasted. This isn't such a big problem since it's easily remedied by taking off the contact tip. 2) When welding even if the voltage at the max, it would not do a smooth weld unless the wire feed was set at 1. Above that it felt like the gun was jumping at me and the sizzling (wire welding sound) was sporadic. Even when clamping the ground to the actual work piece. The HB welder was smoother than this one and I used both on the same work piece (i.e. practice piece). Only being able to weld with a wire feed speed of 1 is not acceptable and I also had a hard time getting penetration even with voltage at max. Pro: - can use 15 or 20 amp circuit. It says on the voltage dial how far you can go with using a 15 amp circuit. You don't need a 20 amp circuit unless you need to go to the max setting on the voltage (the voltage has four settings, 1 to 4), though I did use it on max voltage on a 15 amp circuit and it didn't trigger the breaker. - can use mig or flux core Con: - not being able to use wire speeds above 1. - wire getting caught when feeding the wire through, but only happens when first first getting the tip of the wire past the contact tip. After that it was fine. - the regulator is junk. No gauges to tell you how much pressure is in the tank. - no attachment for the spool so you can use a 10 lb. spool. Not sure if it can handle that big of a spool. It doesn't say in the instructions. November 16, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Extremely poor MIG performance You get what you pay for....and this is one of the cheapest welders out there. The first one I received was defective. It did a fair job with flux-cored but absolutely would not MIG weld (yes I changed the polarity, wire, gas, etc). I took it to a local welding shop and they confirmed it was a dud. So I returned it (hassle free with Home Depot) and ordered a replacement. The replacement worked better than the first but the MIG welds were complete trash. I could not get a good consistent bead with penetration to save my life. Changed all the heat settings and feed speed and there was no solution to make this thing work. Also, the wire feeder would intermittently just stop dead. Not acceptable. There was no kink or other logical explanation as to why the wire feeder kept stopping. After hours of trying to make this machine work for me, I gave up and returned it to Home Depot (again). After being fooled twice by Campbell Hausfeld, I wised up and made the excellent decision to purchase a Lincoln Electric HD140. I was impressed with the quality of the components from the start and it works like a dream. It absolutely destroys the Campbell Hausfeld for only a few hundred bucks more. Well worth it for a quality machine that should last many many years. I don't understand how the first 6 ratings were so good for this machine. Either both of my units were defective or the reviewers have an extremely low expectation of how a MIG welder is supposed to work. June 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best welder I could have gotten! I needed a light welder for home 'DIY' repairs and projects. Very simple to set up and not hard to learn to operate. The in closed paper work did a fairly good job and I did some time searching and reading on the internet then gave it a try! Worked like a charm. June 30, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good so far I am a novice, learning to weld on my own. It seems pretty straight forward to use. So far I would recommend this welder for a simple combo flux/mig welder. Watched a youtube independent review that sold me on the product. April 23, 2013
