Do I have to weld with shielding gas to get agood weld with a mig welder.

Asked by: Anonymous
Great Question buzzard. Shielding gas is ALWAYS required for MIG. You will have better welds vs. Flux. Hope this helps. Andy

I had a lincon for 15 years never had trouble. This one is nothing like the old one. I am sorry I spent the 300 dollars. I am looking for another welder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great welder for the price when you use gas Great price on high quality little welder, but to get the most out of it you need to spend a little more and get a tank of shielding gas and an auto-darkening helmet. I have been welding with flux core for years and the improvement in weld quality and appearance with MIG is amazing. You can get professional results up to about 3/16 steel with this little gem. All the welder I will ever need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good welder for a good price This welder has been a good value so far. I have had it for a couple of months now and have used it quite a bit. I have used both flux core wire and solid MIG wire in it. I have used it on angle iron, flat steel, sheetmetal and strut. Does a great job. Obviously if you have $2k to spend you can find a nicer welder, but this welder does a fantastic job in this price range. The wire feed mechanism works very smoothly and does everything it should. The key is to take your time and pay attention to keeping the machine clean and making welds in an organized manner. So far it has made some very nice beads, plenty of heat for what I am doing and I have not once had the machine go into thermal overload. I noticed on the back of the machine it has a 'Made in Poland' sticker. That tends to give me more confidence in the machine than some other units on the market. If it lasts for a number of years, it will definitely be a 5 out of 5.
