I’ve finally reached the breaking point with my cheap MIG welder. It was a Walmart special and has never worked well. It is wildly inconsistent, and has only 4 temp settings which always seem to be exactly the wrong ones.

I am looking for a welder that can work on a 110v circuit and has an adjustable temp setting. I’ll be using it for 90% sheet metal welding, with a little bit of heavier welding here and there. I’d like to get into it for under $500 new or used.

I saw the Eastwood 135, which seems to have very good reviews from people who got a good one(there seems to be QC issues at the factory).

Thoughts? Suggestions?
