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

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

I used this machine on several different projects, never once a feed issue, over-temp light hasn't come on, welding for 10-15 minutes at a time for over an hour with short 5 minute breaks here and there. I have no complaints about this machine. Great machine to learn on as well. The settings are easy to learn, easier to play with, with a guide diagram on the inside cover to get you in range of various metal thicknesses as well as what settings one would use to weld with flux-core wire, C25 (25%carbon dioxide 75%argon mix) or straight Co2 (carbon dioxide). Love this machine.

Wire speed inconsistent. You end up with cold lap on 18gauge!!! I bought so I could MIG weld... My friends $89 harbour freight runs circles around this as far as flux core. Buy something else....

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.
