This welder isn't worth the money. Spend a little extra and get a bigger, more powerful welder. If you don't have the tiniest rods available, this welder will not work. It will not weld any metal of any substance. Absolutely did not meet any of my expectations.

It worked but just barely. Had trouble with recommended size rod; you have to use a smaller size. Two minute job took ten.

Received the PRO-SERIES 120 Volt Arc Welder... solid package with accessories. Very clean looking welder in a compact package and had reasonable weight/heft, more than I expected. Cables, clamps, stinger all seem good enough - the face shield is a plastic joke but doubtful anyone would be using that anyway. However, this welder welds as if it is grossly under powered. Basically there are two settings, low/high which correspond to 50 and 70 amps. The spec sheet on Home Depot says this welder will weld up to 5/32" rods, but that must surely be a typo and they probably meant 5/64, because it does not have the power to drive even 3/32 rods effectively - I tried both 6011 and 7014 rods with no success. It might be on the low end but 70A should be just fine for most name brand fresh 6011 and 7014 at 3/32. Arcs were EXTREMELY difficult to start even on cleaned steel, and sticking was a major problem, and you can't get anything other then high, cold beads if at all. As a desperate try, I swapped over to some 1/16" 6013 and still had problems sticking though the power ranges seemed way off. The low setting at 50A would not even allow a bead on a 1/16" rod! I could not overcome sticking at this setting to even get a single bead. The 70A high setting on a 1/16" 6013 was TOO hot and quickly overheated the rod. So basically... there's not much you can do other than tacking with 1/16" rods. That's not very useful... so the welder will be returned.

Nice for the price!
Got this on a one day only special for $70. You're not going to build any power plants with it, but be patient, and it's more than adequate for small garage repairs. Only minor inconvenience is that my local HD doesn't carry the small size weld rod that it needs. Might as well buy some online when you buy the welder. Get a real mask and chipping hammer, too. That said, it works well and can't beat 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.
