I am new to the forum and this is my first post...
Just wanted to share my experience with the new welder I bought:
A few days ago I bought the new "black" 90 amp welder for $75... Immediately I noticed differences in this welder from the older "blue" 90 A models. The spool holder is better made, the wire feed mechanism has been enhanced and has a 2 sided feed wheel for either .030" wire or .035" wire. It feeds pretty steady and smooth.
The box says it's a hot tip welder, but it is only hot when the trigger is pulled.
I also noticed the manual says it's AC, but on the welder itself, it states it is a DCEN.
I used Lincoln .035" wire in it, and I was very pleased with how it worked. I would recommend this welder to anyone that wanted to weld as a hobby and just for fun. For the price I couldn't pass it up.
