Default Re: Harbor Freight Mig welder

gas wire feed works great. nice and clean parts no wind. intersheild[no gas] works good but you need clean parts[no paint ect.] but theirs flux in the wire so theirs splatter but if your building fences out side it works great. problems with the chineeze stuff is the wheel that pushes the wire through starts slipping and you end up with a welder that wont work that you cant get a part for or you end up with a wire burnt up in the gun/hose.. a nice dc arc welder will burn through thick oiley painted dirty t-1 steel and thats what you see on underground pipes dozers ships bridges ect. use it for your light stuff and have fun, practice and keep an eye on that wheel and dont tighten it too much good luck! dennis
