I purchased a used Hobart Handler 140 and I think it might have a problem. No matter what Amperage setting and wire speed I can't get any penetration. I am using .30 flux core wire, no shielding gas....


Hi there,
Sounds like you liner may be bad.There is a plastic tube that the wire travels through to the gun.The teeth marks from the feed wheel acts like a saw and can cause a short.Then the liner carry's part of the voltage.Look for a blue color on the liner. Here is a video that shows how to change a Hobart liner .You may want to multi test first for contanity with the power off.

Wire keeps jambing in hose


Make sure you are using a high quality brand of wire. Don't use the junk Harbor Freight sells. Use Hobart or Lincoln Electric. Also make sure your wire feed setting isn't too fast.

Im looking into getting a mig and have come across the century (by lincoln) welders for 299. is this a quality welder and of same quality as a Lincoln brand.


No, it's not going to be equal to the Lincoln in all ways- but if Lincoln built it it'll be a decent machine.

In all honesty, if you can only have one welder it should be a stick welder. Mig welders are full of problems and, while ideally suited to 8 hour a day 7 days a week use, can be finicky as heck when used infrequently.

The stick welder allows you to work in all positions and all conditions, it's generally cheaper than Mig welding and it's usually faster.
