Give it a good work while it is in Warranty

especially the High frequency, being high voltage likely the weakest thing.

Hope it has IGBT transistors, likely new welders do.

Kenny Tarmac strikes again.

Note: all spammers use this same line "I'm just a happy customer".

Don't listen to those grumpy bastards--I don't think they've had their meds today...

Anyhow, Fire615, welcome aboard. Which model did you get? The $699 special isn't a bad deal at all! Feel free to ask any welding questions you may have and we will expect a full report with some weld pics once you get it up and running...
