Because we're all carrying a torch for somebody, one way or another.
Our good friends at Summit Racing are now offering a full line of Summit-branded welding gear, including the Summit Portable MIG Welding Kit seen here. Available in 115V and 230V versions,these kits are great for welding mild steel with .023- to .035-inch-diameter wire. They feature powdercoated steel cases, positive position cam-lock power switches, illuminated thermal overload indicators with automatic reset, infinite wire speed feed controls, and forced-air cooling. The 115V welder has four power settings, produces 90 amps of welding power at a 30-percent duty cycle from a standard 115V outlet, and welds 24-gauge to 3/16-inch-thick mild steel. The 230V welder has seven power settings, produces 120 amps of welding power at a 30-percent duty cycle from a standard 230V outlet, and welds 24-gauge to 1/4-inch thick mild steel.
Each welder comes in a kit that includes a Euro-connect industrial duty MIG gun with 10 foot cable, a 300-amp work clamp and cable, a brass gas regulator with hose, mild steel and flux-cored wire, and a complete instruction manual. The 115V kit is priced at $429.95; the 230V kit is priced at $569.95. And if MIG welding is just too wimpy for you, Summit's got TIG and mack-daddy Plasma Cutter kits as well! So mosey on over to Summit's website for all the info, then fire one up and git 'er done.
