Customer Questions & Answers

handles 5/32 rods ?

There's no way this machine will handle 5/32 rods. I call shenanigans.
Asked by: Dee3
Follow-up to my previous answer. 1/16 rods worked great. However I piled on so much poor steel with the 3/32 the weld never held. Had to break it off and grind it down again. So I wouldn't use this machine with anything larger than 1/16th. Ps: Hammer/brush is nearly useless. Mask is silly, but a helmet, a hammer and a steel wire brush.

Can this handle automotive sheet metal?

I have a 2002 Chevy with rusted wheel wells. Can I use this welder to weld in patch panels? Thanks for any answers.
Asked by: Whiskeyfire
No, it will burn through, you need a MIG welder for sheet metal

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The little welder that could I get tired of reading stuff from overly macho welders that say you cannot get the job done with these little stick welders. When I was growing up there were basically two types of welding, oxy-acetyline and arc welding. I am sure the TIG and MIG and wire all existed but in my high school shop class it was a Lincoln tombstone or bottles. I got this little unit mostly for repairing and building fences on my farm. I built all the corner braces for my fences on 37 acres from 2 3/8 inch pipe, hitching posts for horses, 3 pt box receiver hitches for an 80 hp tractor, and a 16 ft trailer that hauled a 1/2 ton pick up from Texas to Missouri with this unit. It works on a Honda generator in the back of the truck and is a lot cheaper than a gas powered unit that I evidently do not need. It is a very capable unit for a hundred bucks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for Small Welding Projects I have seen different sets of specifications on the web for this welder. Some say it will burn 5/32 electrodes, it will not, ever. I believe they meant 5/64. I could not get it to burn 3/32 6013 as stated in another review. It did do a great job with 1/16 7014 on the max setting. Overall i am pleased, i plan to use it to train others to weld at work, it was inexpensive, uncomplicated, and functional. I purchased it on sale, it was just what I wanted, just know you will only burn small rods.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product Like i said. Great product. Bought this item to do some hobby jobs around the house. Worked well. Didn't blow any fuses and the thermal protector did it's job. Tried to weld rebar but had no success. Not the welders fault. Material is junk and rich with carbon. I found that 1/16 rod and 1/8 worked well. Used harbor Freight electrodes. Cheap and was able to spark the rods easily. I am by no means an expert welder but more a novice. Haven't welded since High School but after a few sticks and watched video on YouTube I was pretty good. Hope this review helps. Oh yeah the price was incredible. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is the plug wire is only about 5 feet in length but the welding leads are 8 feet. would have liked a longer plug wire so I could keep the machine closer to me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value, but duty cycle is a pain I bought this on sale, and otherwise I think I would have spent a bit more and bought a better welder. For the price I paid, I am extremely happy. This is my first welder and I've spent about 5 hours on a wrought iron fence project with it. I got about 30 to 50 minutes of on and off working time before it heated up and hit the thermal protection. Once that happened, I had to wait 15 minutes for it to cool, then weld for 5 mins before the welder would heat up again. I used 3/32" 6013 sticks just because this was a small welder, and it worked great. I think it could handle 1/8" too, but haven't tried. Comes with a cheap welding mask that I didn't use, a chipping hammer/brush. Has selectable 50/70 amp switch for output power. Overall, I have enjoyed using the welder so far. You just have to space out your use so it won't overheat and slow you down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok for the price Works just about ok for a low power welder, good for small home or outdoor power equipment repairs or projects. Welded a 1/8" bar to 3/16" pipe for a T bracket and did OK. A more powerful unit would have made it easier & better quality welds though! Unit came well packed but face shield was broken in the box. Called the 800 number & they sent one in a few days so the service is there if needed. Great price on a HD special made my decision to buy it since it would pay for itself after a few small jobs if you had to pay someone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beginner System that really works well for a low price I always wanted to learn welding, but the entry fee for the equipment was too high. This unit is nicely priced and really works. I have several small sheet metal projects and this unit is perfect. The only negative is this unit only works with two stick sizes and you have to order them, but that was just a minor setback. The front of the unit has a power switch and right next to it is a switch clearly labeled with the stick size so I did not have to guess the amperage level to set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for what it is For around the house and general welding, does a good job. Wouldn't recommend E6010/E6011 welding rods... Tends to cause temp overload. E6013 seems to work best with lower and higher voltage. Though I would recommend learning to arc weld before purchase, price is low enough to use system to learn on.
