    Don't know about the Northern brand but I have a Hobart Handler 135, great machine for the size.
    I would rather spend a little more for a Miller or Hobart than a "house" brand welder.

    2tay530, One of my smaller migs is a Lincoln HD3200 and going by the pictures shown, that is the same welder as mine, just different colors. It has the same exterior case, drive assembly, hose, regulator, etc... it's all the same. Either Lincoln makes them for other people or other people make them for Lincoln, don't know which. I can't speak for the one pictured but, mine is great for sheet metal and light gauge materials. Dave

    Cool Cheap tools

    It's $130 cheaper than their Hobart for a reason.

    Don't buy cheap tools. You'll get to cuss them for the rest of your life.

    Find a way to get yourself a Miller, Lincoln, or Hobart. And get one that you can add a bottle to later. Buy from your local weld shop, you want those guys on your side.

    For what it's worth: dabar39 welds race cars, I weld brackets.

    They are cheap copies of lincoln's....they even say right on the front panel made in China.....I know of a guy that got the plasma....after the second one he returned it for a refund..... never got them to work at all.
