MIG welder purchases seem to be a re-current topic on this list.
I know I asked a few months ago, and was thankfully for the replies
(I'm very happy with my Lincoln SP125....). A net-less friend is
also in the market for a welder, but is on a more limited budget.
He found a "Pocket MIG" welder from Daytona MIG that he is interested
in, and wanted to get some opinions about; I've never heard of the
brand, and was wondering if anyone here has.
The basic spec's of the machine is:
115V, 15amp input
110 amp output
4 heat ranges, infinitely adjustable wire speed
torch, 2 extra tips
single gauge regulator
2 lbs of wire
20 cf argon/CO2 mix bottle, filled
The price was $423 for the package, $478.25 shipped to his door. There's
a 1 year warranty on all internal parts, and 2 year warranty on the
transformer. This unit is suppposed to have been available for the past
12 years now and has a .3% warranty rate (how'd he get that info from them???)
It looks pretty complete to me (other than gloves), and sounds like a good
deal. Has anyone here had any experiences with the company and their products,
both good and negative?
Thanks in advance,
Mike (for Tim)
