    Lincoln Electric

    Very nice unit with plenty of power.

    I bought this unit to do some auto body panel replacement welding. I already have a 220 volt mig that I have used for over 10 years. It has a hard time with light welding tasks like sheetmetal. I figured this unit would be good for small welding tasks and is a good brand name in the welding world. The unit came well packed. I was not happy that the gas regulator did not have a gauge, thus making it hard to know when you were near the end of your bottle. I did end up adding a gauge since this would drive me nuts. The reason I am giving it full stars is based on its performance. It really surprised me to its ability to weld thicker material and still run on just 110 power. I love that I can plug it in anywhere and weld away on just about any size material with ease. And as predicted, it does dial down to be very good with 18 gauge sheetmetal. I wish it had a infinite dial for power output but I am able to find one of the 4 settings that will work for the job at hand.

    Lincoln Electric K2185-1 MIG Welder

    Was looking for a decent, cheap MIG welder two years ago, searched the web and found this for $267.18, delivered, Fed EX, 2 day delivery. Jumped at this price and got it in two days. I have had a Lincoln 235 Amp AC welder for about 40 Years (bought it new for $79.00 retail at Farm & Fleet) and have welded more things than I can remember. It is still going strong, so I knew I was going with a good brand name. A few months later, I bought a Argon/CO2 tank to go with it. It sat in my shop until just recently, (We moved here in 2010 and it took a while to get the shop built and arranged the way it should be) when I bought a cart for the welder. Well, I just used it about a week ago. This thing is fantastic! It is the easiest welder I have ever used. I built a cart for my OXY/Acetylene set, out of 1" square steel tubing, all miter cuts.

    Everlast

    Great for the hobbyist and homebrewer

    I really wanted to get a higher end model using IGBTs instead of the older MOSFET switching technology on this, but couldn't justify the cost. A second major consideration is the unit, an inverter type, will run on 120vac--still waiting to wire a 240 outlet I can use. I've never used a plasma torch (but do weld), and found it fairly straightforward. The "manual", a half dozen printed pages, that came with it was very poor Chinglish without much relation to anything, but the PDF from the website was thorough and complete.I did call support, a couple times, mostly to clear up my ignorance. Had to leave a message each time, but he got back to me within a couple minutes, and was _very_ helpful, knowledgeable, and local, at least to the US. The current can be set on the front panel, but it didn't go to the rated 50amps, so I called. Voltage issue. My inverter welder's output is 140amp @120v VS 150amp @240, and I expected similar with the plasma unit. Not! Higher working voltage... 4/5 R.

I was going to buy the more expensive IGBT unit but I now am glad I didn't. This 50amp cutter works better than my more expensive 75amp thermal dynamics and the big plus is it uses less parts in the torch. I gave away my old plasma cutter and kept my new Everlast Supercut 50. I love the simplicity of it and you don't need the more expensive IGBT units. I have mine wired for 230VAC. Great machine and highly recommend it. I use it to cut stainless steel and mild steel I have cut up to 3/8" thick plate with no problem and a clean smooth cut.

This review is from: Everlast PowerPro 256 250a TIG Stick Pulse 60a Plasma Cutter Multi Process Welder (Tools & Home Improvement) I've heard lots of negativity about this welder and was worried about issues. Well I couldn't be happier with it, weld everything wit ease and the arc is the main st stable I've ever seen it will light up at even 2 amps. Packing was great and they upgraded me to a 256s which has more options and a smaller torch. Have cut 3\4 " plate like butoter. So all in all Dont be scared of this machine welds as good a 4000$ miller but you also can cut metal.

    very disappointing

    I contemplated for 6 months on buying the powerpro 256 before I pulled the trigger. Now I very much wish I would not have made the purchase. The welder did not ship on the estimated date it took a month after the payment was processed to receive the unit. I was told the Tig setup would be upgraded because of the confusion but that did not happen either. When it finally did arrive it was very cheaply made and the decals were already pealing off. It almost looked as if it had been used before. I decided I could live with the cosmetic issues as long as it worked as stated. I proceeded to hook it up using the very vague and confusing instructions. I tried it on the plasma cutting set up first disappointed, then the tig welder on ac setting disappointed, then tig on dc setting this was the only setting that I could get any use out if but it was not that great. I have a friend that owns a welding company and even he could not get a quality weld out of the unit.

    Big Blue does it again

    After years of having to drag any of my welding needs to work, I finally plunked down and bought this unit 2 yrs ago. I'm a fan of Miller products from way back, having cut my welding teeth on a Syncrowave 250 multiprocess machine, and using all Miller products at work from light gauge galv. steel MIG welding (Shopmaster 300 from the 80's, 2 yr old ShopMate 300DX), to running straight SMAW stick welding with a couple of DialArc 250s that range to the late 60's, early 70's. And in my shop environment these things get beat to hell, and little if any repair work has been needed. Miller machines seem to last forever.That said, this little 120 volt MIG welder has some serious guts to it. It's more than light enough to travel with, and being 120V it can be used almost anywhere. I regularly run it on a 15amp circuit with no problems.The 20% duty cycle is overly cautious - this machine doesn't quit. Doesn't cut off, either, just keeps going. Welded the doors... 5/5 M.

    There is nothing that comes close to this tool

    0 5/5 Philscbx (Mpls, Minnesota) - See all my reviews I have had my Millermatic 140 unit for a little over a year now, and it gets used more than my much larger Miller 250 220 volt. I can weld as small as I want to 1/2".It's rated for 3/16's.But if you know what your doing, 1/2" is no big deal.This guy can plow along like the baddest units out there.You also need to go to welder supply to get bottled gas mix for it.Not cheap, but there's no way around it unless your going with flux core.Then you also need the electronic mask.Grinders, clamps, safety equipment, safe storage high on a solid cart.I always forget to make a video for items here.So next project with this guy gets a video of 1/2" steel for those that have no clue. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 6, 2009

Welder showed up on my door step about 1 week after ordering.After everything is said and done, it totaled about $1,200 for the welder, a bottle of argon from a local supplier, safety gear(gloves and a helmet), extra wire, and a welding cart.The welder works perfectly. I have had trouble with it tripping the 15 amp breaker when cranked all the way up. If you are welding heavy, make certain you have a 20 amp breaker available.Overall, its a Miller and hard to beat. The only bad part was the local supplier harassed me for not buying the welder from him. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 16, 2012
