I have had a Hobart MIG welder for over 10 years, its a 130 amp , 120V unit works great for what I need most of the time. A friend of mine got a older stick welder in a trade bundle and didn't need it. He felt like he owed me something from a heavy duty ball hitch I gave him that I had sitting around so he ask if I wanted it and I said sure, he did say that he wasn't sure it if worked. I got it today and plugged it in and tried it out and it works like a champ. I tried a few different rods with good results on mild steel. The only thing is that it needs a ground clamp and a new stinger lead, the one it has is made up mostly of electrical tape. After I seen it worked, I just couldn't not give him something for it, so I showed up at his work and slipped him some cash for it, he tried to refuse, but I said he had no choice. Here is a pic of one I found on the net, mine is just like it except the dial indicator is missing on the handle, no biggie.
