Re: Old dog learns new trick...Welding!
Looking up about the welder I bought and found out that the Hobart is made by Miller. Seems they use plastic parts for the Hobart where the Miller gets metal parts. Made on the same assembly line.
The Lincoln I bought will weld up to 1/2" thick metal. It will only weld up to 3/16" with gas and after that you have to use flux core since it burns hotter.
