 Need info on Mig Welder

I had a Hobart 135/175 Mig welder given to me this evening - can anyone tell if this is a decent welder?
Any tips on using would be helpful as I have never used one.

Thanks

Good machine for welding up to 1/4" steel, can weld up to 3/8" with some pre-heat and some practice. I believe that machine can run MiG or FCAW wire. You may want to start with the FC wire to get a little practice before using solid. If you can start making decent welds with the FC wire, you will be happy with what you get when you start running MiG.

Good luck.

Thanks for the info Beagle. In my book, anything free (most of the time) is decent.

I've been looking around my new garage and the only thing I have here right now is wood! Couldn't find any scrap metal to play with.

Well,are you familar with any welding? M.I.G.,STANDS FOR METALLIC INERT GAS,there are several ways to weld with mig,,bare wire with a gas shielding,flux in the wire without a gas shielding,,short circuiting transfer,globular transfer,spray transfer,you can weld,steel,stainless steel,aluminum with this process,,skill level required is generally considered less than with stick rod,,,but,,this is not actually the case,,it just seems easier to the beginner,,takes a lot of skill to make a top quality weld with it,,,hobart is one of the top brands,,you will need probably a 220 electric source,to plug it in,,shielding gas would be co-2,unless you are using a flux cored wire,[than you may or may not need additional shielding],,argon gas for aluminum,,,,and if it was given to you,,than of course its a good one.

I was at my local welding shop the other day and saw a mig wire designed for very thin metal. I have a Lincoln Weldpack 100 with the argon/CO2 for mild steel. I have been involved in go kart racing for several years. I build the chassis and roll cages and my children crash them. They are really good racers, no major wrecks (daughter is a former track champ) but I have to joke with them a little bit. Check out the link for this wire, it may solve your problem on the thin steel. I have not used this product, my materials are .083 or .095 thickness.
