I have an old Hobart Handler 135 which they don't make anymore. LUV IT! Still does everything I need up to 3/8" and still 110v. The newer Handler 140, etc. are after Hobart was bought out and windings and such are not as they used to be back then. (This from the welder repair people, they say some other major welder MFG bought them, kept the name, and cheapened the lower end units to compete w/chinese, etc.). If I were buying today, I would look hard at Miller 175 for all around. When I got the Handler 135 I needed something to plug in to 110. Bob
