    Re: 110 volt migs

    I know this is an old post but I must say that the Millermatic 211 is nice little machine. It runs on either 220v or 110v simply by switching out the quick disconnect plug. Works great in the field running off a generator or a customers 110v outlet and I use it in my shop to do stainless or aluminum with the Spoolmate 100 spoolgun. I do all my shop steel work with the Millermatic 252. Between my 211, 252, Bobcat 250, and Syncrowave 350 LX, I think I'm pretty well covered!

    One case involved a four-year-old girl, Lynn Abdelal, who was given a cup of blisteringly hot coffee to give to her grandma, and suffered a second-degree burn when its lid fell off.


    umm... now what? laugh?

    there's a lot more to the Micky D case than the 79-years-old "fool" who spilled coffee on her.

    A tragic event, but still an act of stupid that should not have been rewarded.

    who was stupid enough to give a 4 yr old that hot of a liquid?

    Anyhow,,,i have used a hobart 140 for about 8-10 years around our place. It has been a fantastic welder that I was bragging about last week to a friend. My sons have welded uncounted exhaust systems with it. I even fixed a bobcat bucket with it one day.

    The duty cycle does suck on a 15 amp circuit. I put a 20 amp plug on a 15 amp circuit once just to use it for a repair at a friends house. I could blow that breaker fast!

    Re: 110 volt migs

    I just bought a Lincoln Power Mig 256 and love it. But I still own my Lincoln HD 140 and plan to keep both around. Both machines have their uses and I don't think the 110v machine is bad at all. It sure it a whole lot more portable. I can take it over to my bother's house and run it there which I would never consider doing with my 240 lb PM 256.

    My Miller 130XP has a lot of hours on it and a lot of use, I've used bigger and still its really easy to grab the little 110 box and a generator and go. I don't put up buildings and I might be trading 50 feet of a seam weld / grind on automotive sheet metal for a new 200 amp house panel install and a 150 amp sub to the garage.

    I've bought two (used) one was functional & the other required a new switch. It was cheap just time consuming. I sold both since I have 5-6 different stick welders already that are old and work every time.

    That said;

    They do work ,BUT... You ought to be able to find a good name brand AC welder for $75-$150 thru Craigs List easily. One of the older standard welders will work forever and be functional for years to come... They are almost bulletproof

    Good Luck !

    I use my 110 for field tacks all the time. I only run fluxcore though. Hardwire will not stick to anything unless its really thin wall tubing.

    idk how long you been welding has to do with anything but 220 is the way to go if you have 220. my 110 mig comes in real handy on occasion.

    i have the lincoln sp125 plus for home/light fab work. with the proper breaker and wire (innershield) and some common sense it has paid for itself several times over.

    I have a HH 140 and I feel the same on the 110 welders, with proper prep on your metal and the right wire, things should fall in to place for great welds on any giving job around the Home or small farm..

    I am another here that agree's: I have no use for a 110 or 120v machine, they serve not much use other than a toy in welding anything but sheet metal.

    You did a perfect job of preparing this weldment and welding this thick metal with the 110V MIG welder.
    You got complete joint penetration.

    If you want more evidence of that ,cut through it transversely with the appropiate tool and you can see the penetration by using some dye. I would not try this unless you have a secure way to hold it so you do not get hurt.

    i bet julia child could make some amazing food with a broken down george foreman grill. could it be that this concept is beyond the 110v naysayers?

    Re: 110 volt migs

    Im gonna give my opinion a 120v welders. U can agree or not agree I dolt care Its jut a opinion.

    "quality" 110v or what ever machines are good. U gonna mount it to a truck and do a pipeline? or open a fab shop with one? No!

    U can however do ALOT with a good small machine when U have a grasp of what your doing. Most hobbiest and home owner welders dont need to weld 1/2 steel ever.

    I had EVERYONE tell me I couldnt weld a motormount perch on a chevy pickup cause My HH140 didnt have enough power to do it and I HAD to have a stick welder on high amps to do it. BS! the motor mount perches are fricken sheet metal with a rolled edge. I literally only had it on voltage tap 3. I did do a multipass. Did I need to? NO! I just like to do multipass on anything that important. The weld to this day have had zero probs even with heavy offroad use. I have built a bumper with my lil HH140 for a buddies Ford Ranger and its still intact and un cracked or broken or demounted to this day even after he has used that same bumper to yank out tree stumps, backing up into a tree. pulling loads of quickcrete and lumber with his trailor hooked with it. jacking up thhe rear with a hi lift on it. and no structure damage. Only thing we had to do was make new bumper mounts cause we tried cuting and using the stock ones and there pretty much sheet metal and not up to the task of a heavy peice of still. Ranger brackets and frames are pretty thin and only part boxed in at all is the front end.

    We also have made doors with it. welding angle iron for a frame with 2x6 as the body of it with round stock going through it at 4 places welded to the angle iron frame. Doors help up fin but they weight a grip and even barn door hinges sag. I have made jewelry anvils on a stand with a ring sizer for silver work and even though the little snvil is over a inch thick and the small welder wont even get close to enough penetration for structual integrity its plenty for silver work since your not smacking it witha sledge or alot of weight to break it. I have done quite a bit of exhaust work without a prob running .030 flux core with it too. I will sayy I have not used it for bodywork cause that does take some skills. very very easy to burn holes or cut thin metal witha little wire feeder too. I have done artsy crap too with it making coat hangers with horseshoes where I only welded the backside of the horseshoes so it looked like they were not welded and that they just float and weld is not seen and and ground down so it mounts flush to a wall and weld is plenty strong still for the application.

    I have also noticed that there are 220v machine owners that have never even tried a 110v unit who hate on them cause they somehow feel there of higher status because they own a 300amp+ machine and anything less capable is junk. Reality is how often do you really run 300amps? most people even on SMAW only run 90-120amp and sometime 150+amp.

    I have "real" buddies not just internet peeps who have used cheap POS units who were not able to weld diddly with it and didnt respect the HH140 because of past experience with crappy machine but then tried a "quality" 110v machine and fell in love with it.

    Cause in point is there are tons of POS bargain bin units that give quality built machines a bad name but to call all 110v machines useless or junk is narrow minded. A good quality 110v machine can be just as usefull and great as a $6K dollar 220v or gen set as a 110v depending on project or application. There nor need to drag ur 300lbs+ machine plus bottles and crap out to weld 10guage metal if u got a good 110v machine right? u aint gonna run any more voltage/amps to weld it on a small machine vs a big machine right.

    Re: 110 volt migs

    Well. I kinda lean toward the 1 amp per .001 "rile" when it comes to MIG.Stick---not so much.
    That being said I've certainly seen people do some amazingly ingnunt chit !

    Re: 110 volt migs

    I never realized how sketchy 110v migs can be till this past year.
    I was spoiled with machines like my lincoln and the hh140.
    Someone can just as easily get the impression that all 110v migs are junk from seeing some of the made in china garbage out there. Where you have fcaw only, hot all the time wire guns and ac only power output.

    Re: 110 volt migs

    I have owned, used and loved 110 wirefeed (Hobart Handler) Currently own and use Hobart Ironman. Love it. Sometimes I need a tack hammer, sometimes I need a 12# sledge hammer, sometimes a splitting maul, sometimes a 32oz ball pein. They all have their use if you know the limitations of them and yourself.
