Yea by all means shop around first, I have been shopping for almost a year now , and I have learned a lot about Mig's and Tig's in the process, but my mind is made up now so I can move on to other things now

You can learn a lot just from their cataloge, good move I hope you are happy with what ever kind of welder you end up with, as long as you are happy that's all that matters,right

Let me know what you do end up with ok, Later, Bugs

I wouldn't hesistate for a minute to go with HTP, whether they are made in Italy or not. Make sure you compare the duty cycles and amperages for an apples to apples comparison also. Good luck which ever you buy!

I have the same one at home. I've owned it for about 13 years. Never had a single problem with it. I'm very happy with the quality. BTW, mine's made in Hungary. When we needed a welder at work, we also bought the 140 HTP.

I'm not a welder or bodyman by trade but an electrician. So when I was looking to buy a small MIG welder, I looked at them all! I liked the specs on the HTP the best. It was more money then I was planning to spend but it's been one of the most if not the most satisfying purchases I've made with tools. The quality I thought was excellent when I first got it and I still think so today. At 135 pounds, you KNOW that it has a real transformer! You'll be happy with it.

The welder I am getting weighs 235lbs. it has to have one nice size transformer in it too, in the picture in the cataloge of the inside of their welders is kinda scary, lots of gaggets and things, looks like a well built tool to me,

Won't be long and I will have mine, the block mason is comeing this weekend to lay my knee wall for my shop, I decided not to attemt laying them myself, after this is done it won't be long , maybe by next week end my tools will at least be in the dry, might not have a concrete floor to set them on for a while, but getting the welder means more to me than a concrete floor at this time Can't wait, thanks for your reply on it, I even got my wife to read it, her comment was , "Very good"
