Mine is an old Miller transformer based machine, but I've seen the quality of the welds it will produce.

They are great for small stuff and tacking shit, got one at a swap meet about 10yrs ago, it's been great.

Ain't got a clue who made mine but it works good as long as you don't push it beyond what it was designed for..

I picked up a Hobart 140 a year or so ago. Works pretty good for the few things I've welded so far.

My snap on works well just gotta be careful it's a 200amp machine and with .036 wire it don't like doing small stuff. But I manage. I like tig tho just gotta practice. My work machine shoots .052 dual shield wire inverter driven Lincoln with the mig suitcase.

Fuel system nearing completion. Mounted the pump, had to make it a box out of 1/8th inch plate to protect it. It hangs a bit lower then I like but I knew it would. Metal fuel line is all tucked and tethered to the frame with 3/8 hose wrapped around any where it may contact any metal. Should end up with just shy of 2 feet of rubber hose. I'm gonna jet fuel injection hose because of its sturdier construction. Got some more AN fittings tonight as well. Will add some pics tomorrow. Also when I put the fitting in the sump like a dumb ass I put it on the wrong side oh well gonna add another tomorrow. I think I'm gonna epoxy a magnet to the sump as well.
