    Home Improvement (Lincoln Electric)

    Rating (26 reviews):

    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. I have plugged into... 5/5 hankbear - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    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. The fact that you can see exactly where the weld is immediately, is great, no chipping off slag to see the results.

    Great , plasma cutter and welder great packing yes yes yes yes buy buy buy

    0 5/5 Brian Maxwell - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) 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. Good luck 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 31, 2014

    Great TIG Plasma Cutter combo welder

    0 5/5 Frugality - See all my reviews This review is from: Everlast PowerPro 256 250a TIG Stick Pulse 60a Plasma Cutter Multi Process Welder (Tools & Home Improvement) This is a good welder cutter for people like me who want a portable all-in-one to take on the road and not take a lot of space in the truck or in the garage. It is both AC and DC so it can weld aluminum and stainless steel which I needed. The plasma cutter is powerful too. The tig welder has all of the features I wanted like pulse and postflow and has great power and it came with all of the accessories included to get started. Tough little welder. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 11, 2013

    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.

The cardboard is thick and all of the cables and consumables are packaged in their own box so they don't rattle around during shipping.2. AccessoriesThe accessories include a nice quality water separator. The work clamp has copper faces and a strong spring. The torch is comfortable to use and appears to be high quality.3. Plasma Cutter power supplyThe plasma cutter has a full 60 amp power supply with 60% duty cycle. Amperage control is digital and easy to adjust. Post flow is also adjustable for torch cooling after the cut. Air pressure gauge is right on the front for easy verification.4. Case and handleThe case is top notch thick steel for durability. The handle is strong too to make this plasma cutter portable.5. Cut qualityCuts are fast! I can put down the power on aluminum and steel and it cuts good! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 19, 2013

    I just received my supposed to be new everlast powerplasma 60 IGBT cutter 60 amp cutting system.

    0 5/5 Dan L - See all my reviews This review is from: Everlast PowerPlasma 60 IGBT Plasma Cutter 60amp Cutting System (Tools & Home Improvement) I have been using this plasma cutter for a few months. I have it plugged to a 220v circuit in my work shop and connected to the shop compressed air. Make sure you use clean dry air for the absolute best consumable life and cleanest cuts. I used to use this plasma cutter only when I had a lot of repeat cuts with material already laid out and marked but now I grab the plasma torch for just about every cut I make. I don't reach for a grinder with cutting disk or for the gas cutting torch much anymore. I haven't hit the duty cycle yet even with many repeat cuts or cutting long sections of thick steel. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 23, 2013
