If you have ever used a hot glue gun before, then you’ll feel right at home with this welder. Using 110V power, this MIG Welder is actually a gasless MIG welder, or flux core arc welder, meaning that there is no shielding gas to turn on and regulate. Instead, the welding wire has a flux core, with the flux providing the shielding gas as the wire is consumed. This means setup is a breeze, simply plug it in, set your wire feedrate and heat setting, attach the ground, dawn your safety gear, and pull the trigger!
Note: To use this machine, you will need to have taken the 1 hour Certification Course that covers the following:
- An introduction to welding, specifically MIG and Gasless MIG (FCAW)
- Demo of setting up the welder, using proper safety gear, and welding technique
- Student will practice laying weld beads with instructor checking each pass to offer advice for improvement
- Student must successfully setup the machine from scratch and safely weld two lines to become certified
