Buyer Beware

I couldn't even get an arc on this welder, never mind put two pieces of metal together. It's possible I didn't have enough power going through my circuit breaker, but more likely you get what you pay for.

Great Welder, Portable and Light

I have a Lincoln Ideal Arc 250 that I hadn't move to my new shop yet. This little craftsman welder saved the day welding up a grooming mower deck I pull behind my tractor. The mower is old, and the deck is thin. This little welder set at 50 amps and using 6013 rods did just fine.

Incapable welder with incapable employees able to prove ANY information on it.

Worst part about this welder is that no one from Sears can answer questions on it. I called Sears parts to find the "optional TIG torch for DC TIG Welding on steel and stainless steel." and they didn't have any info on it - or where to obtain it from. The they transferred me to a call center overseas where I could barely communicate with the associate and she put me on hold at least 5 times. Needless to say, that was not ANY help.

Fortunately, from my own research I found out that this unit is almost identical to the Forney 298 Easy Weld™ 100 ST ARC Welder, 120V, 90A. This means that you can use the TIG torch that works with theirs with this Craftsman unit.

Another down side: great, now I can TIG weld... but you can't work with Aluminum. :-( In order to weld aluminum you need high frequency settings and this doesn't have it available. So, this is somewhat misleading as it doesn't say that anywhere in the product description and Sears employees surely don't understand the difference
