    replied to New 190, terrible welds!
    Trying to weld with bifocals is probably not helping. I am 51, without my eye-glasses I am extremely near sighted. With my distance eye-glasses I am far sighted. I tried welding with my Bifocals in the past and it was very annoying and increased the difficulty in producing a quality weld. For welding...

    As simple as...

    For anything beyond yard art that Handler 100 is going to be best on 1/8" and thinner.

    You gave up a significant amount of amperage going with the 100 over the 125 EZ.

    With an .030 wire the 125 EZ is an excellent little self-shielded fluxcore unit

    For what...
