Description
The Smarter Tools MIG-135 Welding Kit includes: MIG-135 welding power source, MIG torch with 8ft. (2.44m) lead, ground clamp with 10ft. (3m) lead, 2 extra contact tips, a 1lb. spool of flux wire, a 2lb. spool of MIG wire, 0.6mm and 0.8mm (0.025 in. and 0.031 in.) drive roll, 0.9mm and 1.0mm (0.035 - 0.040 in.) drive roll, and adjustable gas regulator with a hose, ST-1S Auto-darkening welding helmet, gloves, users manual, and welding cart. The MIG-135 Kit is the perfect choice to do projects and repairs around the home, farm and shop. This MIG welder will produce a cleaner bead with less splatter than a regular flux core wire welder. The welder runs off of a standard 120 volt household outlet and produces an output range of 20-135 amps. It uses standard flux-core wire (E71-GS) or steel wire 0.6mm, 0.8mm, 0.9mm in diameter and has 4 heat settings to easily adjust the output according to the thickness of metal you are welding. The welder can easily switch between gas-less flux-cored welding for deep penetration on thick steel or gas-shielded MIG welding on thin-gauge steel, stainless steel or aluminum. Package includes: MIG-135 welding power source, MIG torch with 8ft. (2.44m) lead, ground clamp with10ft. (3m) lead, 2 extra contact tips, a 1lb spool of flux wire, a 2lb spool of MIG wire, 0.6mm and 0.8mm (0.025 in. and 0.031 in.) drive roll, 0.9mm and 1.0mm (0.035 - 0.040 in.) drive roll, an adjustable gas regulator with a hose, ST-1S Auto-darkening welding helmet, gloves, users

Was a good value
4 Star Review   By Stan on Home Depot - Jun 4, 2013   

I have used this welder two time and it works as it should. I was impressed with the quality compared to some name branch welder.

2 Star Review   By FirstInFlight on Home Depot - May 30, 2013   

At first, I thought this combo welder was a great deal...but I realized there was a reason it was so cheap; Because It is Cheap. It has worked, but not effortlessly. Conditions have to be ideal with the thing to arc. I have to use needle nose pliers to change the contact tip. The Flux core wire that comes with it is only suitable for sheet metal (I guess, since it didn't work on steel plate). The gloves are super thin and don't provide much insulation from hot objects. The cart barely goes together because the assembly screws are so short. The only benefit, other than the cost, is that you can integrate gas into the process...but I haven't tried that yet so who knows?

missing parts
3 Star Review   By djcode on Home Depot - May 5, 2013   

all in all the welder works like a charm However the kart that came with the kit was missing 6 bolts so i had to rob 4 from the casters to hold it together, and it was missing the Extra tips,,, the Flux cord that came with the welder was 0.23 but the tip on the gun is 0.30 no biggie

Great Value
4 Star Review   By joeynose on Home Depot - Nov 13, 2012   

I've had no problems with the welder. It worked out of the box perfectly. I changed the standard 120 v, 3 prong plug to a heavy duty 30 amp rated twist lock. Other than that, it welds sheet metal and body panels fantastically using the MIG welder. To weld thick metal using the MIG, pushes the 120v capabilities, but it still welds solid. Flux core weld thicker pieces. Overall, great value.

1 Star Review   By Marc on Home Depot - Jul 30, 2012   

The quality of the product is poor. I have had to buy a better ground clamp and the gauge and hose leak (yes i used Teflon tape). It will take two weeks for the parts come in. The only piece I can say anything good about is the cart. Unfortunately I am still unable to test the welder but it looks like I will be dumping more money into it. The parts are very cheaply made and I could have done better going to Harbor Freight. It does not say much for Home Depot to sell products of this poor quality.

Do not use the welding wire that comes with the welder. Get good quality wire and the machine works great. Had a question for customer service, left two messages, never got a call back

1 Star Review   By cwilliams on Home Depot - Jun 7, 2012

Lot of welder and accessories for the money..Great starter kit
4 Star Review   By Fabricator on Home Depot - May 29, 2012   

Overall a nice package. Out of the box it didn't feed wire, had to take the panels off and finally figured out that the fuse holder wasn't properly holding one end of the fuse. Once cinched up it works great. Super auto-darkening helmut provided. Side door to wire feed area doesn't close well and could be better designed. I bought a CO2/Argon tank and all is working well. I had to put in a 30 amp circuit into the garage for the welder but allowed me to add some other outlets as well. Satisfied with this purchase

great value, easy to use
5 Star Review   By novicewelderll on Home Depot - May 28, 2012   

I looked at many wire feed welders before purchasing one. seen this one on line at home depot site. was a little worried because of the brand name. The value was there because you got every thing you needed to start welding. have used it several times, realy like it a lot, easy to use. makes good welds with very little practice.

The135ASolid wire is a good welder for around the farm
5 Star Review   By JB530 on Home Depot - Apr 21, 2012   

i've had mine for just about a year, and it's a little hard getting use to the setting, ( I was using a 3200 gas welder before were the setting were different, eaiser to use) but this welder, welds everything that I need it too, the weld's don't look like they did with the other welder, but I guess that will just take some more time. I'm happy I got this product, just don't give up I haven't.

Great online price
4 Star Review   By Miner49er on Home Depot - Apr 20, 2012   

Seems to be a good product so far. I am a brand new welder so I have a lot to learn. I was impressed by the starter tools that came with the welder as they were the deciding factor in the purchase of this machine.
