new welder!


Brought it home today.
Lincoln Pro Mig 135 (amp) wire feed welder. Mainly using it with .035 flux core wire for now. It was $397 + tax at Lowe's. I'll post project pics as soon as I get my steel. I am still figuring this thing out. Any suggestions

also, if you haven't made the mistake yet, be carefull when you unwrap the wire, it will act like a spring!!

At least twice while setting it up and then again when the stupid wingnut got loose! Man that's agrivating! but I do love this thing, once you get the power and wire feed speed set correctly it lays a really nice weld. Looking forward to using it, have a few projects in mind for it...
