The Lincoln Electric Easy MIG has the right name, as it’s an easy-to-use welder with the Lincoln credentials to attract the serious hobbyist. Built to last, this substantial unit is also portable although it’s a bit of a heavyweight. But that aside, you get a lot of decent welding for your 600 or so bucks.
You have the option of gas-shielded MIG or flux-core welding, with a slick action that with a little practice, enables you to lay down some neat beads. And at such a good mid-range price, this excellent Lincoln MIG welder can also step it up for more serious jobs, making it a good investment as you develop your welding and project skills.
