Hobart Welder
« on: June 30, 2014, 09:33:10 PM »
Well I bought the Hobart 210 Mig welder  its 120 or 230 volts. That could be handy. I will build a cart for it tomorrow and let you know how it works.

cool! congrats! what wire do you generally use? I run .35 generally but I have some .45 for some big stuff. it welds completely different.
It seems I am a coarse thread bolt in a world of fine threaded nuts!

Is that a gas mig or a flux core mig. I have always stick welded but the migs look interesting.
Life is too short or my list is too long, not sure which. Dec 2014

That will work mighty fine. Probably mentioned it in another thread,I made a box on a 2 wheeler for my welder. Most of mine welding is done outside. I just unwrap what ever I need for cord.

It can be either one. I use gas. If i need flux I use the stick.

going to run .035.  I have a couple of spools of .045 for the big mig but have never used them. If its needs heavier I will stick it. So have you been busy ?

Mine is the MVP. I would have liked to get the Ironman but a little more than I needed to spend.

I'm jealous.  Wonder if they would take a 187 on trade? :D  I saw in the paper one of the farm stores has the 210 on sale this week.

My cart and I really like the tricycle wheel arrangement.

I love your cart. I had to buy one on June 30 as the fiscal yr ended and to get the tax break had to be done on that day. The local farm storm had them on sale for 100.00 less today. Just my luck.
