Neiko Tools ( what I have )

generic brand


Lincoln Mig Pak 10- I always thought they were Hobart knockoff's but I guess there Lincoln knockoffs


My Neiko tools 1 doesn't have the curved front and looks identical to the Eastwood and the generic blue 1... you could discount the neiko in the pic being it has a slightly diffrent case. but that does not explain the generic being the exact same welder as the Eastwood, down to every feature and the writing is the same

that said, I have found mine to be very versatile, welds good and for a hobbiest welder like myself, it would be perfect.... the Ebay price for the Eastwood is not a bad price providing the shipping is reasonable. it says freight, but I paid $40 or $50 for shipping on mine and it came regular UPS truck



Very interesting!


Do you by any chance have the price on that blue TL welder? It could very easily be mistaken for the Eastwood machine if someone didn't look at the name and it would be interesting to compare the price.
