Since I hadn't welded since high school (well .. a little stick welding last year), not much to complain about.
Maturity seems to have helped, even with no practice. I suppose it's patience and a better understanding of the process. Didn't say that I didn't study it, just no practice.
Everthing that I have done with the Weld-Pak has been 3/16 to 1/4 mild steel. No sheet metal yet. Don't even have a project possibility in mind.
Most of my planned use is to fix tractor implements that I am too rough on.
I welded the split weldings on the rotary cuttyer deck, the spindle on my rake and the most interesting, replacement pins that hold the rake tines.
I selected this unit based on a relatives 'Weld-Pak' recommendation and the fact that this particular unit was $300 as a returned/refurbished unit at a Home Depot. Seemed like enough of a good deal for now.
