This Lincoln Electric Handy MIG welder kit is ideal for the beginning fabricator. The welder is compact, portable and lightweight, uses standard household current, and can handle 24-gauge to 1/8-inch thick mild steel. The kit includes the gun and cable assembly, work cable and clamp, gas nozzle, gas regulator and hose, a two-pound spool of .025-inch solid wire, .025 and .035 inch contact tips, and hand shield with filter plate and lens. You also get a one-pound spool of self-shielded, flux-cored .035-inch wire, and chipping hammer/brush so you can use your Handy MIG to weld with gasless, flux-cored wire.
