matt167 said:y it takes Tweco torch parts and liners, and it is a Hobart Handler 140 knockoff/ can use some of those parts for repair if need be
matt167 said:Well, it seems very fishy that I know of 3 brands of these welders and they are all identical.. I think you may have in house testing, and they meet your quality standards, but I do belive they are not made specifically for Eastwood
Neiko Tools ( what I have )
Lincoln Mig Pak 10- I always thought they were Hobart knockoff's but I guess there Lincoln knockoffs
My Neiko tools 1 doesn't have the curved front and looks identical to the Eastwood and the generic blue 1... you could discount the neiko in the pic being it has a slightly diffrent case. but that does not explain the generic being the exact same welder as the Eastwood, down to every feature and the writing is the same
that said, I have found mine to be very versatile, welds good and for a hobbiest welder like myself, it would be perfect.... the Ebay price for the Eastwood is not a bad price providing the shipping is reasonable. it says freight, but I paid $40 or $50 for shipping on mine and it came regular UPS truck
Sure do. Took these for another forum that asked for them. Also included is a pic of the feed system for the spool gun.matt167 said:it's not that they look simmilar.. it's that they look identical and quite obviously from the same manufacture at the very least, regardless I realize you could have better internals specified... like I said before, even assuming the machines are identical as they seem. the $50 price diffrence is worth it for the 3 year warranty
got a picture of the Feed system?
