yes, mine was a diffrent model and was flux only. I never said it was the same model.. it was the " Mig 100 "I can't remember the model number. but aside from adding functions and stuff, there all the same basic unit.. I know the deal with getting the parts. I'v had to do it a couple times. and if they have to come over from china you might as well just say the parts are unavailable.. a slow boat doesn't take 8 months but that's how long I'v had to wait for stuff to arrive.. not to mention, only 4 heat settings??.. the machines are just a re- badge of a complete china no name as seen here http://cgi.ebay.com/DUAL-MIG-WELDER-...item518f87f56d

with the machine I have now, if anything happens to it, gas liners and torch parts are all genuine Tweco so a run to my local TSC or welding supply will get me whatever I need, and northern tools can get internal parts for the welder as it's the same thing without the Northern tools label.. this is the unit I bought, just at a lower price http://cgi.ebay.com/Industrial-flux-...item35a63070e4
with the widely variable heat ranges, I can weld most anything very easilly
I still say, the HF welders are garbage.. when I bought mine, I saw the price tag, but over the 5 years I had it, I used it about 5 hours and watched the dust collect on it most of those 5 years because it was almost completly and totally useless.. there are just some things they sell that arn't worth it
