hi,ive bought 2 lincoln welders from home depot (different sizes,both great machines),i seriously doubt that there would be a lincoln welder built to home depot specs,for 2 reasons,HD is not in the welding business,so they wouldnt know how to spec it,and Lincoln,would tell them we dont build OUR welders to ANYONES SPECS ONLY OURS.

Bought a new Lincoln 180 yesterday.. Sweet machine!!! Dealer gave me 30 days to try it out or return it no questions asked. I had him write it out on the reciept. He knew I was looking online for a while and he got me with the 30 day trial.
After using the machine last night, I don't think I'll be returning it. I'll actually be looking for a spool gun for it.

I here you! The problem I'm having is Eastwood wants to charge me $219.00 for shipping!
Kind of forces me to either shop locally or Free shipping with Everlast.

My Eastwood 175 mig welder works great!
I had been doing a lot of research on mig welders. I found nothing bad about Eastwood welders and they came highly recommended. I did find out that Home Depot and Lowe's models of Lincoln welders are inferior to welders sold at welding stores because they are made to Home Depot specs so when I saw an Eastwood 175 mig welder supposedly new in the box on craigs list with the aluminum spool gun for $325 I jumped on it. It was in an opened box but still wrapped up. When I got home it didn't work! After a little investigation, I found the terminals in the plug from the gun were pushed in too far. It looked like someone just jammed it together when they tryed to use it for the first time. I pulled the terminals back out, screwed it into the unit and it works perfectly! I can't imagine a welder working any better than this one, I love it! I can't say anything about the spool gun because I haven't used it yet. Would I recommend one to a friend? You bet I would!

Looks like i'm getting better response on Everlast Welders. Seems they have a great 5 yr replacement warranty and free shipping to Hawaii.
Anyone here use the Everlast welders?

I would love to buy a Eastwood 175. The Prices here (Hawaii) for welders are a lot higher here than in the Lower 48.
Shipping a Eastwood to Hawaii is almost a deal killer. I could buy a Lincoln or Hobart for almost the same price.
Not sure how a warranty would be covered.
Can ayone from Hawaii that has a Eastwood 175 chime in?
Is there another source that has cheap shipping?
BTW: I need a welder soon....... I'll be searching for one online. Price point (including shipping ) will sway me from a Box store 220v welder.

Hi I build monster trucks I build a lot of tube frames and my 4 link bars are 1/2 inch thick can your Eastwood welder handle that thick of steel to weld I'm looking for a new welder and seen your welders they look nice and all and backed up with your warranty sounds good but my ? Is can it handle welding 1/2 it only says welds up to 5/16

If you have no welder now and are a hobbyist like most here, then the ThemalArc 181i is dollar for dollar your best bet.
MIG,TIG, STICK, all in one package.
lift start tig.
Spool gun compatible.
$909 w free shipping.
made in Malaysia
The next 2 sizes up are more money and are made in the USA.

I'm 99% certain "overseas" will be the answer.
|02-09-2012 07:40 PM|
Just one question Matt. You stated your welders are designed and tested in house. Where are the welders made.

|Aboveall4x4||Hello what size steel can your welder weld up to I was looking at the 175 220v welder almost was about to by it then I saw it welds 5/16 steel that's not enough for me I need to weld up to 1/2 inch steel I seen a Lincoln welder at lowes home improvement center that can weld up to 1/2 sells for $650 not a bad prize for a Lincoln if you ask me if Eastwood welder can weld 1/2 I might go with it but right now I think the Lincoln is my choice for sure|

|Ricola||I just wanted to comment on this topic. I just received my Eastwood Tig 200. I haven't tig welded since welding trade school 30 years ago. I fired this machine up and right out of the box it preformed well. I haven't used it much yet but I ran a bead on 1/4" plate and 1/8 aluminum and the beads were consistent. I was getting the feel of the machine. The heat range with the foot peddle is a challange to get used to. In a 8" bead I managed to almost burn through the 1/4" plate in the last 1/4" With practice I can see this welder will be a great asset to my hobby shop.|
