I had a few used Lincoln's over the years and lost them to theft so I bought a Miller 140 and still have it 15 years later, been an awesome machine.

Nice job. I had the same visor original on the Jimmy. The other half snapped off at 60 MPH and I never went back to get it. It was one of those things where I only remembered to fix the crack when I jumped in the truck..

So who is ESAB? I never heard of or used one. I see on their site, they don't look like a fly by night CKO company. Definitely a try before you buy on these things. I don't trust those little small welders for holding upto much. The big test, is how it does on thin stuff, any of the Chinese stuff just sucked on that.

Hmm, could always send money and someone could ship you one The sales tax saved would probably be the same as shipping. But then again, they do sell welders online.

Millers are about the top, Lincoln's are good if you buy the top stuff, but you really get what you pay for. The cheaper consumer stuff is just a name on cheaper junk.

It was explained to me that they don't own Hobart, they just make a lot of the Hobart machines.

esab machines are made in sweden, great machines, just got machines price.... $ 3326.00... it doesnt seem right, hes going to recheck it, and let me know....

thanks for the offer diaric, but the simple fact is that we are cash poor, but have contracts, and an account at the machine shop, so either take a machine from there, or just tough it out with this piece of junk lincoln.... weld 15 minutes til it looses all it guts, let it sit for an hour, and start again...

your hobart is a handler 140?

Hobart 140 is basically the bargain version of the Miller 140. Almost everything is the same hardware wise between them.
