I didn't set it up AJ. I'd honestly have to look at it because I don't remember what unit it is but I do know it's several years old now. Century is a good one as well as Hobart. The 110 units are very useful and to be honest I'd like to have a 220 unit but this is what we've got right now so it's what we use. I'd also suggest that you get one for gas because you can use flux core in it if you have to do some welding outside. Just disconnect the gas and you're ready to go.


Agree definitely get a gas unit.

Just thought to add something.

A lot of the cheap units leave the wire HOT !

You need to be very careful with that type of unit.

I had one and it was a pain. . .

Gotta agree 1000% here. My first one was hot all the time and you had to be very careful where you put it or you had sparks fly everywhere. Not fun. :vom:

best bet to purchase is http://www.weldingmart.com/

we do not do the volume they do so the pricing is great..

get a gas unit..and there are plenty of 110 units that work fine...I have both...for quick jobs such welding a bung into a down pipe I use the gasless with flux coated wire..but for panels and large jobs I use the Argon welder...If I had the extra $$$ I would go Tig...
