No, I do not recommend this product.
I bought this welder on the reviews I read, but it was nothing like the reviews !!....I bought 3 different rods that it says on the label on it, I could not get a weld going to save my life !!....took it to a friends place and he could not do it as well....even with the small dia rods all it did was stick the rod to the steel after it sparked once....I even tried ramming the rod into the steel but nothing but sticking rod to metal....I have been welding for years at my job and this welder did not work right !!!!!!!....I should have went with lincolns 255 stick welder I was going to first....

I got this for my birthday and this thing awesome . It has done everything I've wanted it to do. I got it so I don't get rusty when I'm not gonna be at boces for a while. I haven't reached the duty cycle yet but I think that's because I trip the breaker before layin down a whole rod. I've welded only mild steel so far but it says it can weld up to a 1/4inch thick steel and lemme tell ya that's a lie. Today I welded half inch steel and it got plenty of penetration and it was perfect. I used 3/16 7018 and 6013 and I've used 1/8 6011 and it worked fantastic. If you're lookin to buy a 120v stick welder this is the one you should buy with out a doubt. And century is owned by Lincoln so you know its good
Pros: Easy to Use, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design

Ive done alot of welding with this little jewel. I find myself using it as much as my lincoln 225 220 volt welder. Most of my welding has been utility trailers and snow plows for lawn tractors. and a few repairs on a 8N ford tractor. Ive welded 1/8 to 1/4in pipe and had excellent results. The most important thing to remember is. The welds you do depending on the rod you use,(6013,6011,6010) will have atensile strength of 60 thousand pounds per square in. ( welded properly) I wouldnt try welding a backhoe bucket with this machine but for building 5x8 utility trailers, Excellent. Im the kinda guy who will stretch a machine to the limit and beyond so ive been impressed so far. Id recommend itto a beginner or a veteran welder if it were the only choice. Of coarse a veteran may have a better unit but just sayin.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, has excellent potential

I purchased this product to do some light sheet metal work on a vehicle I am restoring, boy does she work like a charm, the low duty cycle is an issue but this little unit is great. I also found that it is far more than capable of welding up to 3/16 or 1/4 inch steel its not limited to only 1/8 inch steel. Great little unit I would definitely purchase it again.

I have been welding for over 12 years and have never used a 120V welding machine. I was impressed at how well it ran and how it performed. All in all, great buy!
Pros: Easy to Use, High Quality, Good Size & Weight

This is a good welder for what it is. It is perfect for what I wanted. It does short welds on light material. It's low duty cycle limits its usefulness, but I knew that when I ordered it. I like it and would buy it again.
