If you had a few more year's under your belt,, And made a weld one time with a ''Better'' machine,, Then you would understand what I'm getting at.. Shane.. I'm not trying to dis what you know by all means.. So don't take it the wrong way.. I just hate to see people try to save a $100.00 buck's in don't know there's a big difference.. Sorry.. I was lucky enough to weld with a lot of different machine's over a 25 + years period,,to be able to know there's a big difference.. But you have to like it.. Good luck..

I have been looking around at some used ones and I found a Century that is made by Lincoln. He did not have the model but it is the 230v 180a version. It has a feed problem. It also has the Spot and Stitch feature. Should I stay away from Century or are they truly comparable to the Lincolns.

I would spend your money on a Lincoln or Miller 220.. I wouldn't mess with Century..

Century is Lincoln's economy line. I belive originally marketed for Sears but now sold elsewhere also... my dad has a 110v 110 amp Century Arc welder that was bought new in 1991 and it's still working good but theres a big diffrence between an Arc welder and a Mig welder

My old man has a Century he bought new from TSC 110v flex core. When you are welding the flex core pops all the time, and the gun has power to it all the time even with the trigger not pulled. I would take hood off and look at work peice and toach vice or table and get a flash.....I bought a 220 Volt Lincoln on the bottle
