I'm not a welder. But after watching quite a few u tube videos I was prepared to have a go. This welder had good reviews and I'm really glad I brought it. I have used it to build various things like a barbecue and a trailer for my car. My advice would be prepare well and practice practice practice, it won't make you an expert but somewhat competent. The gasless feature is in my opinion brilliant although it spatters a bit.
Good basic level no-gas welder. Easy to use and would be ideal as a starter welder to practice with or for light work. Bought for a specific purpose which it served well and has gone on to teach two other amatures to learn mig.
I bought a transit van so this was needed for 5 weeks solid welding. After which got my van through the mot with flying colours and did'nt let me down once. Good eggies abd will probably be needed next year and do the same. Well worth it and a good product too.
