I weld on some weekends in my buddies truck garage. And he has the prince spool gun and i hate it. Always working on it. I told him never again so i take my miller and spool gun with me. Just the high priced tips are enough not to buy one...Bob

Lincoln makes some exceptional products...
Unfortunately their spools guns are not . The units i had experience with were very clunky and looked like some elementary school student put it together as a school experiment. That being said, i dont bash the entire brand, The spoolmatic 30 a is a very good rugged and reliable unit that will give good service for many years. I like the newer gun body design that has the hinged lid as apposed to the old slide off cover, and the compatibility with the newer consumables are a definite plus.I have a welding addiction
...the only stupid question is the one you didn't ask

Ahhh, most of Lincoln spool guns are made by MK products, Lincoln doesn't even warranty them.. I refuse to do a MK products warranty, its just a hassle.
parts are expensive, consumable are expensive, as well as, few LWS's carry consumables for them.
