If you haven't, get your self an auto darkening helmet, you won't regret it. You will also need a welding stand, I made a cheap one out of 3/4 conduit that will fold up when not in use.
I hope you get it up and running be careful and have fun.

instruction manual for your welder.
My wife bought this little gem for me 4 or 5 christmas's ago. It's a 110 volt mig welder from Chraftsman.

From what Ive read all welders like this are all made in italy and have various name brands put on but all are the same.

Do they work???


I welded a motorcycle stand with it.

Cheapskate Riders Board • View topic - Bike stand

Another project was to weld a Harbor Freight trailer together and a hitch that sits under the rear fender of my motorcycle, Pulled that thing to Sturgis and back!

Basically all I can say is these little units work wonderful!
