Judging from what I've seen on the SnapOn truck lately, whoever was the lowest bidder on that batch.
Snap On Tools, favored by *******s around the world.

I do like some of the same thing *******s do!!!! Namely women!!

Back to the welder...I know its not Century..it is some other lesser known that builds quality welders!!

I had their "other" models too....they suck! This is one of the best 120 volt welders I have ever used-owned...

The reason I want to know is that I was givin a tig kit for another model made by the same company...and I need a different plug for it! I am no longer serviced by a Snap-Off dealer... thank god!!!

I think the SnapOn 140 is made in Italy by SIP.

I have had this welder for years...I think at least 10...not one once of problems...until now

I need an insulator for the gun!! ($18.00)

I think I gave around $1500.00 when I purchased it!!

It is by far the BEST 110 welder (although pricey) I have ever used and I have used many!! (25+ years in the Autobody biz)

There is even a TIG kit available..scratch start and limited to 12ga to 1/4' steel only!!
