@ Home welders

I saw the post goin between Miller, Hobart, Linoln but I have been looking at the Tweco Fabricator. Does anyone have feedback on Tweco? it looks like it could be an awesome machineand most reviews I have seen seem on the up and up. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I have a hobart handler 140 with a standard 120 plug. It works great for home use. The only thing is, mine is called weld mark but it's just rebranded hobart.

Thanks for the kind words Timothale, this is a my MIG welding one.

https://www.hotrodders.com/forum/basi...els-44009.html

Print it out and read it a few times before grabbing the welder, I have been told it is very helpful.

Here's another.. https://www.hotrodders.com/forum/tip-...er-103739.html

All of this can be helpful but nothing works like getting out there and welding. But getting some basic understanding of how it works can move you ahead much faster when you do grab it.
