Default Re: Harbor Freight Mig welder

I just got to using my HF Cheapo mig welder $109 delivered. It worked great for the few pieces I practiced on. Lots of spatter and ugly welds (ugliness was mostly operator induced) but some people weld pretty, the rest of us grind. I love my little unit, but it has to be said that I was the guy that started the post about building your own welder, and after fighting with my home made machine, that HF Cheapo works like a dream. Never having used the quality Hobarts or Lincolns I figure it is kinda like drug use if I never try it I will never know what I am missing so I will be happy with what I got.
