Interested in welding? Ready to try your hand at wire welding? Have we got the welder for you the Handy MIG from Lincoln Electric! This compact, portable and lightweight wire feed welder plugs into a 115V, 20 amp outlet and is user friendly. Four voltage settings and continuous wire feed speed adjustment allow you to weld mild steel from 24 gauge to 1/8" thick. And, it's easy to get started since practically everything you'll need to MIG weld is in the box gun and cable assembly, work cable and clamp, gas nozzle, gas regulator and hose, spool of solid wire, contact tips and hand shield with filter plate and lens. Just add a cylinder of shielding gas. But that's not all there's also a spool of self-shielded, flux-cored wire, contact tips, and chipping hammer/brush so you can use your Handy MIG to weld with gasless, flux-cored wire too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mig wire feed welder It did a great job of welding a quad frame back together. Easy to use . The face mask works just fine but a proper welders mask would be easier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the beginner Perfect for the beginner, great value. Just wish I would have gone with 1 step bigger to be able to weld up to 1/4 material.

Is this welder good for autobody repairs?

I have never welded before and I was wondering, if I buy this welder using 25%Co, and 75% Argon with .023 wire, will this do a good job welding autobody sheetmetal? Looking to replace cab corners and rocker panels.
Asked by: Anonymous
The Handy MIG wire feed welder is capable of welding from as thin as 24 gauge to as thick as 1/8". If you use the gas mentioned in your question along with Lincoln Electric 0.025" wire sold at Home Depot (item #174185) then you should not have any problems welding autobody sheet metal provided it is within the range indicated above. From what I know of rocker panels and cab corners you will not have any problems with this machine. Please be sure to check out the setup chart on the inside of the door where the welding wire is mounted for proper setup instructions for MIG and the metal thickness you are working on. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to call Lincoln Electric at 1-800-268-6114..

What accessories are included?

To confirm, is a mask included and does it auto-darken, what wire sizes and nozzle sizes are included (which are flux-core and which are regular), is the needed regulator included for MIG gas bottle?
Asked by: Anonymous
The mask is a hand held faceshield that does not auto darken. The wire diameter is .035 flux-core (gasless) & .025 MIG (gas). The nozzles are our Lincoln standard gas & gasless nozzles that fit all Magnum 100L guns. The unit includes a preset regulator for MIG welding.
