Millermatic 124 Hobby

This cycle we are featuring MILLER ELECTRIC Millermatic 125 Hobby (MLR907692) . There are many small MIG hobby units on the market. Some are good and some not so good. They will all strike an arc and weld but if you want something that will last and be able to get parts for years from now, I strongly suggest that you buy a name brand. This unit is well built, when you open it up you will see a heavy cast aluminum drive system. This unit will weld 24 gauge -1/8 inch steel with hard wire and 18 gauge – 3/16 steel using a flux core wire. The auto-set feature provides the right settings. Just turn the wire speed to auto-set position, a blue light will light up showing it is activated. Dial the metal thickness and start welding with the exact parameters you need. This unit comes with a built in gas solenoid, for MIG welding. For welding with flux core wire you will not need any gas. The unit is protected by a thermal overload. An overload light will indicate an overload and will reset when the unit cools off. This unit operates on 115 VAC 20 Amps single phase. The package comes with the Power source, power cord and plug, 8 ft. M80 MIG gun and cable, 8 ft. work cable and clamp, argon and AR/Co2 mix flow gauge regulator with hose, a spool of HOBART .030 solid wire, two contact tips for .030 solid wire, quick set drive roll for .024 /.030/.035 solid and flux core wire. A metal thickness gauge is included.

We now stock the VOLTEC Pro LED Work Light (EXT08-00624). This unit uses the high power COB LED. It is a 300 lumen spot light. When you extend the body it exposes the COB LED to produce a 250 lumen flood light to light up the entire area. It has a high and low setting, magnetic base and is constructed of heavy aluminum alloy. It uses 4 AAA Batteries (Not Included)
