That said, this little 120 volt MIG welder has some serious guts to it. It's more than light enough to travel with, and being 120V it can be used almost anywhere. I regularly run it on a 15amp circuit with no problems.
The 20% duty cycle is overly cautious - this machine doesn't quit. Doesn't cut off, either, just keeps going. Welded the doors shut on a demo derby vehicle - nonstop welds. It's insane.
The M-10 gun is smaller but is perfect with this machine. I would probably replace the ground clamp with something a little heavier duty, but thus far it's been fine for my usage. The wire feed motor is a bit on the louder side, but has no problem pushing 0.030" wire at full speed off of a ten lb spool. Spool changes are quick, which is a good thing, I seem to alternate back and forth between 0.023" and 0.030 all the time.
I haven't really had an opportunity to run the Auto-Set as much as I'd like to comment on it. It seems to work well, but I rarely use this machine to weld equal thickness steels. Example - welding 3/16 wall tubing to auto body sheetmetal to replace rocker panels on an off road Jeep.
If you need to do any kind of welding at home, this machine is excellent. And you can get replacement parts (tips, nozzles) at just about any weld supply shop.
It's rated for 3/16's.
But if you know what your doing, 1/2" is no big deal.
This guy can plow along like the baddest units out there.
You also need to go to welder supply to get bottled gas mix for it.
Not cheap, but there's no way around it unless your going with flux core.
Then you also need the electronic mask.
Grinders, clamps, safety equipment, safe storage high on a solid cart.
I always forget to make a video for items here.
So next project with this guy gets a video of 1/2" steel for those that have no clue.
After everything is said and done, it totaled about $1,200 for the welder, a bottle of argon from a local supplier, safety gear(gloves and a helmet), extra wire, and a welding cart.
The welder works perfectly. I have had trouble with it tripping the 15 amp breaker when cranked all the way up. If you are welding heavy, make certain you have a 20 amp breaker available.
Overall, its a Miller and hard to beat. The only bad part was the local supplier harassed me for not buying the welder from him.
The Millermatic is a dream. Controls for various thicknesses of material. Feed controls that keep up with whatever setting you need. Right out of the box I put a bead down between to pieces of 14 gauge tube. It was beautiful. Welded 24 gauge sheet with no burn through, not even a dimple.
Used flux core and gas/steel with both welders 0.030
Bottom line is you get what you pay for.
The auto feature for wire speed is very handy.
