Best little welder for the money
I got this welder today to do some small automotive and and I also do fence work of building gates and custom fab work and I have got to say it is the best small portable welder I have used lays a nice bead and gets that just right heat!

Best! Flux core welder!
I've owned mine for almost two years and put A Lot of flux through this little guy. It will weld 1/4' with clean surface and good ground. DC current makes for less splatter compared to AC. Great for welding in garage or tight spaces. Sucks the flux is limited in size of spool but great welder. Slag Peel all day. like an inch worm.

https://youtu.be/uxFfwIhH72M This is an awesome welder. I love the size, only 15 lbs. Welds great can easily do 3/16". 1/4" would take a couple passes. I'll be keeping this guy around just because it is so easy to throw in the truck and help a friend! Only complaint would be is it doesn't come with any wire or accessories. If you want to see it in action check out my review on Youtube!

I am very impressed by that Century FC-90. It can weld a lot thicker than ¼” steel. Actually, I don’t know if there is really any limit to the thickness it will weld. Honestly, aside from the spatter from the flux cored wire it is fully as good as a $700 Lincoln mig. I will say that the feed rollers on this unit suck balls. One of them is plastic and the knurling on the metal one is barely there. I plan to buy spare rollers and tensioners because I fully expect those to break. Also, that tiny little spool is a beotch to setup. When you get it new, you remove the plastic from the spool and then the wire wants to spring off and make a tangled ball of shickt. That cost me about 30 feet of wire. And then I had several revolutions of wire on the spool that weren’t perfect, which made it resist feeding. Combined with the chincy little rollers I had no fun for the first couple hours. I cranked up the tensioner as far as it seems I could without breaking it. Eventually, I realized what the issues were and pulled out another 20 feet of wire until I got down to perfectly spooled wire. Then I backed off the tensioner so that the rollers and tensioner wouldn’t break. Since then it has worked flawlessly. Obviously, now that I know that, I will use extreme care when loading the next spool. I think I’m using a 20amp circuit, could be 15, but it hasn’t been an issue at all. The thing that really makes this unit a big value is the continuously variable dual wire/current controls. No other unit has that for anywhere near this price. In my picture you will see quite a bit of spatter. I will say that it spatters a lot less if you tune the settings better. In my picture the lower piece of steel is 5/16" and the upper piece is 1/8" tube. Both mild clean steel. Welding thick to thin makes it tough to tune the settings because it will be too cold on the thick or too hot on the thin. So you have to go hot and aim more toward the thick. That angle and the extra heat makes for a spatter fest. I have also welded 20 gauge to 20 gauge with this already. That was a little fiddly and I fought porosity, but it did work, and there was hardly ANY spatter.

century 90amp welder
I weld for a living. Stick and tig primarily. I do side work aroumd the house building smokers and fire pits. I get tired of stringing leads out from my truck and having to roll everything back up. Bought this little suitcase and so far for the doller ive had no complaints. For a fluxcore it runs great and actually lays a clean bead. Well worth the $170 I paid for it

Folks, this is the perfect welder for my fellow 100 amp service out in the garage, wish we had more buts thats all we got guys LOL it runs smoothly and efficiently. I am not by any means a certified thunder welder, I am more of a thunder pretender but I can recognize when to adjust certain things and I also can run one heck of a handsome bead LOL. Anyway this welder has a standing ovation from me, due to price and performance, it handled some rusted burn pit rehabilitation, this thing is a pile that has earned its spot in the trash but the neighbor insisted I give it a go and by golly it might last another 2 years LOL. The next big test was true 1/4 plate steel and I was skeptical at first but then maxed out the heat, cranked the feed speed and full on sent it ! I was exceedingly pleased with the results and actually did a victory dance in the driveway LOL why not ? The neighbors already view me as a happy go lucky mad man LOL so yes my fellow 100 amp service Americans you may also find yoselves dancing to this wee welder after seeing what its made of so in the words of men infinitely wiser then myself.... Send It !

Century FC90 welder
A surprisingly good little welder that runs on ordinary household outlet. I did not follow recomendations and went a little too hot on 1/16 steel on very first try. After that it was smooth sailing. Excellent.
