Default Re: Anyone use supere cheap harbor freight type welders for their bikes??

I have the 240 volt one from HF.

But, my buddy has that 110 volt one you're talking about. I'll tell you, for less then $100, they're great. The crappy wire you get with it is good for nothing but practice. Get a good Lincoln wire, and you're in business. My buddy build a motorcycle trailer from scratch using that welder. Then he took apart his boat trailer and put it back together using that welder. He was welding cold steal with it, too.

Like other said, it's mostly skill, not just welder. And if you're not a certified welder, you're not going to notice a difference. I purchased mine for 200 bucks after tax, used it 3 times in the last 1.5 years of ownership. So, with that being said, who cares, just buy it and have fun...
