I am looking at about $300 then get the tank in a couple weeks. Possibly borrow one until then.
I Ran across a Hobart handler 135 on cgslst for less than 200. But it needs repairs. The seller claims it is not performing well. It still works but not like it should. Something about a weak arc. He said the part costs 100. What are these worth in good working condition. Are they any good?
From what I have read on the forums gas is defiantly the way to go.
I really don't think I need to go up to the 220 v unit. If I am welding bigger stuff I will use my stick welder or do multiple pass.
