We bought this welder to do light repairs to our equipment. up to 1/4 We use it more than we thought we would and it works great. Simple to use and cost effective well worth the money. After welding for a while with inner shield wire. We got the co2/argon tank and has made welding even better. Now we have been building anything that we need saving us money.
I am primarily a woodworker. However, one of my clients wanted a combination of wood and steel in some designs I made. From years gone by, I have welded with a Stick welder and had minimal experience with a MIG welder. This Lincoln 145 fit a budget need and has preformed excellently. Out of the box, I started welding and completed the table in the photograph with this review. Having owned Lincolns in the past, I felt I would get good results with this welder. It has surpassed my expectation. Just before checking my e-mail today, I was welding with this machine and walked away pleased with the finish I achieved.
Pros: Durable, Lots of Features, Easy to Use, High Quality, quality tools produce quality results

This is one of the tables I made for a client using the Lincoln 145 welder.
I was looking for an affordable welder that ran on 120V for small household projects, and I found this one online at Home Depot. Forty years ago, I used to do some arc welding, but I have never done any wire-feed welding before. Once I set this machine up, I was welding like a pro in no time. The welds are nice and professional looking, not to mention strong. My only advice to beginners is to slow down your speed a little, and use one weld setting lower than the manufacturer suggests. Practice, practice, practice, and you will be welding like a pro in no time. My first project was building mounting brackets out of 1/8" angle iron and 3/16" flat steel for an air horn kit that I mounted underneath my truck. The brackets are very sturdy, and it was very satisfying building them myself and not having to rely on someone else to build them for me. The welder is economical, and it is great for small projects. I can't wait to find a reason to do some MIG welding, so I can see how it works with gas!
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Sturdy, High Quality, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
I actually bought my Lincoln 140 in 2008 with the intent of using it for automotive repairs. It sat new in the box, to include two moves (one to Germany) before I used it this year for an automotive restoration project. So far (despite sitting in a box for 6 years and traveling across the globe), the welder is working nicely. There are a couple drawbacks. The welder ships and is set up for flux core wire welding. Great for general purpose, but automotive panels are too thin to use this effectively. In addition, the face shield supplied with the welder is so dark I couldn't even see my intended weld area unless in direct sunlight, not to mention it takes a hand to hold the shield to your face. I have since purchased a cylinder for Argon/CO2 ($175 + an auto-darkening helmet $125). Both purchases were more in the "necessary" range for the work I'm doing than niceties. Otherwise, it delivers as advertised.
Outstanding welder from Lincoln Electric. I know it can be intimidating to purchase a MIG with little to no experience, but for those out there interested, take a simple course at a local school a couple days a week, and learn the right way. I did just that, and wanted my own. HD had this in stock and gave me a fair price. It comes with two spools (2lbs) and everything, besides gas tank, gas, and mask/gloves that you need to rock and roll. It's simple to use and was built with quality. PLugs right into your 110 V home outlets as well, no custom huge plugs like my stick welder has. Highly recommended.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Lots of Features, Easy to Use, Sturdy, High Quality, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Stylish, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
I do welding, machining & fabrication for a living. Went for this when my home 220V went out. I've used a Lincoln 110V and 220V with spool gun at work for years now. This one's just as good. Not as hogging on gas either. Uses half the gas my 220V did. Tried it a little with fluxcore then hooked up gas & changed over to steel wire then finished 2 jobs with it. Just as good as the 2 Lincoln welders at work. I love that you can hook up a spool gun to it. Handy for doing aluminum and stainless if you don't have a TIG. I do aluminum work even at home.
Pros: Durable, Lots of Features, Easy to Use, Sturdy, High Quality, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, spool gun ready, good price
The welding shop I worked at had this unit set up with MIG and they let me use it to weld up some body and floor panels on my truck. It's quality matched the industrial sized Lincolns we used, in just a minute I got it's settings good enough to make trigger-pulls look like production TIG welds! I feel this unit is the best deal in the 110v class, and I'm certainly going to purchase one in the near future.
I use this for auto body repair and other hobbies that require welding 20 ga. to 1\4 in. The spools change quickly and switching thickness is simple. I have only had this for 1 week but have used it a lot. So far I have not found anything that did perform as advertised. Has exceeded my expectations.
I did a ton of research on 120v welders since I don't have access to a 220v line. This Lincoln 140 was the winner. You can find cheaper welders but they’ll only be 110v, (every bit helps) will not have the gas kit, less voltage settings and don’t include any supplies. Complete beginners will appreciate this and the DVD that’s included as well. With the right gas/wire set up and proper prep work, I found it to be no problem welding thin sheet metal to ¼ inch plate.
This is my first "New" welder. Ordered it online and picked it up the same day. The store couldn't find the welder when I got to the store to pick it up. It would have been faster to just go to the store to pick up and pay at the same time. Bad form on home Depot for offering a service of convince just to make the process more inconvenient. I use a welder for home and automotive projects. That said, when I splurge on a product I expect it to work. Especially if it is new. This particular welder is giving me trouble and it isn’t even a year old. There is a whining sound that has developed with use (gas shielded wire being used in ten pound spool). The welder has to be turn off and back on to make the sound go away. Now the welder has to be sent to Lincoln for service. Very unhappy that this has to be done at my own expense, at least this is what Home Depot is telling me. I unfortunately need this welder for a project currently underway. I am just hoping it doesn't break completely. Bottom line, works as advertised but I have had used welders work just as well for half the cost. Also I have not used the gas feed function yet.
I had gotten this because my mom was going to make some lawn art, and I could weld it for her. I thought that it might be a good idea other then going over to a friends house and doing it. The only thing that I didn't like was that the flux core wire that had come with the welder was NOT put on the spool right. I might have gotten a bad spool of wire or something but I do love this welder.
Pros: Durable, Lots of Features, Easy to Use, Easy to Install
I bought this welder and could not figure out how to get it to feed wire. Followed instructions perfectly and would not work. Disgusted, I wrote a bad review. Well, it turns out that the voltage setting knob was in between settings and that is why the wire would not feed. This was NOT covered in the troubleshooting section of the manual. (Lincoln, take note!) I was packaging the welder back up to return it when I found the problem. Since then, have used the welder for hours with flawless operation. I like it! Wish the feed cable and ground cables were a little longer, and the gun seems a little cheap, but it works well and makes fine welds. If someone reads this that knows how to delete that bad review, please do.
