Third time was a charm, or at least it wasn't beat until it was useless. I did spool it up and ran a few welds on some scrap. It welds very well, very similar to the L56. I'll post back after I have run it for a wee while, but looks good so far. It was $70 shipped, which is about $20 more than the store brand at the LWS, but about $40 less than the L56.

$52.69 for my last roll.. Amazon is kind of funny.. Timing is everything.. I just bought two Nitto Kohki tools for about $130.00 total.. $255.00 Sander, and a $300.00 air drill.. Missed out on two other ones though..
