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
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.
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.
Home Depot sells about 4 different Lincoln welders. I decided to spend a little more thinking I would get better quality . My Lincoln 140HD lasted about 2 hours before it went junk. Stopped working completely right in the middle of a project. Fortunately Home Depot refunded my money and now I can buy the Miller welder that I should have bought in the first place. This was my first and last Lincoln product I will ever own.
Cons: Not Durable

Review 14 for Weld Pak 140 HD Wire-Feed Welder
PostedOctober 22, 2011
I have never welded in my life and i found this to be very simply to use and it does a great job.
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.
Purchased the 140 two weeks ago. it overloaded the 15 am breaker in the garage so I added a dedicated 20 amp circuit for the welder - problem solved. I've been welding a work bench and a beer making cart. largest is 1/4" thick A36 sheet. The welder works great. I like the result of the gas vs flux. using a 75/25 argon He mix.
this is my first welder, and i am amazed at the ease of learning the basics. i did research all the brands i could find out about and really pleased with this welder, i was torn between this and the 88a weldpack, glad i was able to step up to at least this one, with youtube teaching and practice you can do really good welds with unit, i am redoing a brush hog with it now and it handles 1/4 inch no problem. i have played with 5/16 and it does it fine with multi passes. dont think you can find a better welder in this size. and home depot has the best prices on all their lincoln welders hands down.
Pros: Durable, Lots of Features, Easy to Use, Sturdy, High Quality, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
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.
