Lincoln Welders are the best. I have a 125 + set up for either innershield or gas welding.
Best thing is, this welder was purchased in 1996 and is still going strong. I have used this welder at both home and film locations.
This would also be a good welder for a newby to learn to wire weld on.
My Lincoln stick machine is just as old and still going strong also.

Excited to use this for some small home repairs. After building a stand, I watched the dvd and began to assemble the product. I took out the gun cable to find the brass fitting on one end, and NOTHING at the other end of the cable. It looked like it had been cut off. There was nothing there! I've attached pictures. I don't buy things that are repackaged, so I can only assume it was shipped like this. INCREDIBLY DISAPPOINTED.

I bought this with the intention of teaching myself to weld. With the guidance of the included DVD and the instructions, I have succeeded, with a bit of practice, in making competent strong welds. My welds won't win any beauty contests, but they are strong and functional. The welder is very easy to set up and use and, most importantly, works just fine off of a 120v 20A circuit. Don't cheap out on the welding mask, get the auto darkening model. Make sure you wear fire resistant clothes covering everything. I've already recommended this welder to several friends.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Firemarshal71 Nice welder, OK price.
I bought this welder as an upgrade to replace my old hobby welder which was MIG capable. I wanted something that was easy to setup and could handle an occasional weld for some of the projects/fabrications that I do as a hobby. Like some of the other comments, I was surprised with a little practice that I could achieve MIG quality welds with only fluxcore wire. I have welded 1/4" with multiple passes and beveling and almost thin gage (18) sheetmetal without blow throughs. This welder is very easy to use, a little on the high price side, but I hope that translates to quality over the years.

This welder really sizzles! Assembly was easy, it runs perfectly (and quietly) on a dedicated 20 Amp circuit. Long leads, a comfortable and precise wand/torch, and all the controls can be adjusted while wearing gloves. I quickly went through the supplied roll of .35 wire and am using .30 until a 10LB roll arrives which HD sells online for $64 (shipping included).
Feeding-in the new spool of .030 wire could not be easier; up and running again in less than 5 minutes.
Home Depot had it in stock (a Western-Oregon rarity) and they knocked 10% off the price for my military service; thanks!
Online product registration was easy.
Great product, great price, & a great retailer; totally-worth the 40 minute drive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JustCallMeMike Great Price, Better Welder.
I wanted to learn to weld for simply DIY home/auto projects, But did not want to spend major cash. It works fantastically. Have not had any issues. It was fairly easy to set up and easier to use.
Haven't tried any heavy duty welding. Just basic stuff.
Really nice for the hobbyist/DIY-selfer.
