I received a lot of good information from my post about a welder choice. I was ready to get a Hobart Handler. Yester day I was looking one more time at Eastwood for sales. They had a short 7 hr special sale for their Mig 135 for 229.00 with shipping to my door it was 260.00. I went for it. I have a couple more patches and the duel exhaust system to do. It should be ok for that. I have been welding most of my 76 years. Certified with stick in the past, and have done tig ss tubing welding. Just never done mig. So with a machine that starts off new I should do ok. I can probably sell my no name welder for 125.00 or so with a tank, and regulator. A kid would love to have that. (if there are kids that still build things) The welder still works just not great. Stan

Mig is all about getting your settings right and a little practice. Biggest differences in Mig and tig is Tig you control filler and mig when you pull the trigger you best be moving.

I find that TIG is more like GAS welding only without the gases. Takes a wee bit more prep, time and knowledge than the MIG .

Like the TIG wish I was better at it, time will take care of that.

Have both each has its advantages .....

Yes, tig you can take your time and flow out the puddle. I now have a problem with depth perception which makes it harder to weld.

Eastwood welders

I read an article about the eastwood welder brands. When they work they work fine but when they fail good luck on service and parts. I bought a Miller 211 and I love it but its not cheap.

Try looking on www.weldersupply.com. they have all kinds of brands of mig welders. I just looked at a hobart 140 that was highly recommended for $582.00. Take look, besides you will also save the sales tax unless you are in their state.
