Reviewer’s Thoughts:

A well thought out design for an MIG welder. I do wish they included the spool gun as part of the package, though. As it was, I ordered it separately at the same time and It makes my welds passable, as my hands are not so steady anymore. I finished building a custom ladder for my daughter's tree house. It also made short work in building and outdoor jungle gym as well. So, this reviewer gives it double thumbs up and it makes a great present for that DIYer on your shopping list.
