Rated 4 out of 5Â by WVirginiaWelder LINCOLN WELD PACK HD
I bought this for portability and convenience instead of having to drag a full size MIG and bottle around and for its 115V power requirement instead of 230V. Breaking it down, this is NOT a welder capable of butter smooth welds like using an actual MIG with an Argon blend. This is a wire feed unit so you should expect considerable spatter - because it uses flux core wire. Does it do the job? YES. It works well outside and in windy conditions. The welding "shield" that comes with it is CHINE5E junk as is the brush / hammer so toss these and get an auto darkening helmet. OVERALL this is a GOOD unit if you need a small welder for small jobs.

So far I've used this to:
- Extend bed rails to make a twin bed into a twin XL
- Fix a drawer in a filing cabinet where a spot weld failed
- Reattach a rod on the foot board of a wrought iron bed frame
The ability to do the latter surprised me. I thought it might be beyond the little machine's capability, as the iron rod was a good 3/8ths or more in diameter, and I was reattaching it to something even bigger than that. But it did the job just fine.
It's great that it uses 110V rather than 220V. My little work shed isn't wired for 220V, so this is a great option.
I'm a DIYer who hasn't welded anything for 30 years, and I was able to use this well enough after reading the manual and practicing a little.

Bought one because i wanted to learn. I needed to weld in new floor pans and my exhaust in my 69 camaro SS. After a couple of practices I jumped right in. Easy to set up and even easier to use. Floor pans and exhaust came out perfect. Note... wear gloves after welding and picking up exhaust. Went on to weld a steel gate for my friends property and weld a steel deer stand for his father. Excellent product!!
