spot welder

i have a 67 mustang that i currently have stripped down, the body only has rust in the cowl and i also need to install a new radiator support due to an accident the car had. i was thinking of buying a spot welder from eastwood to do the repairs. im new to bodywork and just wanted something to help me repair those 2 spots and also shave the doors. will this product work or is it a waste of money.

Junk, childrens toys. Before I bit the bullet and bought a MIG I bought one of these pieces of junk. Forget it, there is no cheap way out.

The ONLY thing amazing about that piece of crap is that they can still sell it after all these years. It is junk, you would be far better off with a good name brand Mig outfit like a Lincoln, Miller or Hobart. My personal favorite is the Lincoln but most people like Miller, either way anything will beat that junk even a cheap Harbor Freight Mig.

Wow.

For the price of those you could get you a really nice mig welder on EBAY. I got a Lincoln Weld Pak 100 delivered to my door (slightly used) for 180. I later converted it to mig and use the snot out of if. I love that mig welder. Check out ebay
