Forney Easy Weld? 110V DC Stick

I'm looking for a 110v stick welder for around the house stuff. Have a 110v MIG for sheet metal and an old Tombstone but neither are very portable.

I see the Forney Easyweld 110V DC stick is pretty cheap and Forney is a known brand, although I don't think they are built by Forney anymore, just the name.. But it's $140 on Home Depots site which is cheaper than Harbor Freights version..

I want a D/C stick so that I can convert to scratch start Tig if I ever wanted to

I actually used to have a Century/ Lincoln 110v " Buzz Box " for a long time so I know the 110v stick limitations, at least to an A/C box.. I gave it to my dad because he needed a welder and I wasn't using it. It was an older unit from the early 90's. It would burn with 3/32" 6013 pretty much all day long but had a trick to getting it to scratch without sticking.


My MIG is 110v, so I don't need another 110V wire feed welder, and a Generator welder, along with being expensive is not really the kind of portable I was thinking of.

I have a Clarke 110 welder did a good job not many hours on it better range of adjustment than the Harbor Freight stuff it is made in Italy not China,done with my project PM me if interested. Clarke welders are made in the same factory in Italy as Forney.

What about something like the Everlast ST140? It's not a lot more but has 220v capability and a digital readout and comes with most of the stuff needed for TIG. Reading on the little Forney and I don't think it will do what I need. A 110v transformer box ( like I'm used to ) would be best for project at hand but I want more versatility than that..

I've thought about just getting a new Lincoln AC/DC Tombstone since the old one does need new leads and has a rusted out bottom from where it was leaked on years ago. But that old AC 225 just keeps going and I know it's way better than the new ones, just limited to AC
