Excited Review by Dale

Having never owned a welder of my own, now that I've purchased the Hobart Autoarc 130 Value Pack Kit, I can finally finish some of my projects. Having to weld in my job upwards of 30 hours per week with other commercial size wire feed gas welders I can say this welder does a great job for home use. The extra items in the kit are a must for any welder and I recommend the package. The price plus shipping still beat all prices and searches I've done in Calif. Thank you
Rural King for ending my search.

Couldn't beat the price on this value pack anywhere else. Shipping was fast for an 80+ pound package.

The welder works awesome. I use it almost every day.

    • Q: Why does my spool constantly stick have tried every adjustment
    • Show Answer
    • A: Hello Carl,

      I think this may answer your question about your spool constantly sticking:

      Aluminum welding using a spool gun is much more difficult than mig welding steel.
      2. Stickout: with mig welding steel using spray transer, , a short stickout is the way to go. A longer stickout is needed for Aluminum Welding with mig. about 3/4" seems to work, but sometimes slightly more works better.
