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

Handy MIG Welder is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 135.

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....

It's ease of use and the price makes this a worthy addition to my (rather extensive) tool collection. The only one thing I'd suggest to Lincoln in order to improve this product is to ditch the rather silly and impractical hand-held welding mask and replace it with a proper helmet.
