I swear this machine is pissing me off to no end. I bought it at the end of October and didn't really get to use it until the middle of November. I used it for three days for about 10-15 minutes each day (I was just tacking some sheetmetal) and then the wire feed stopped. I called Hobart tech and then took it to the service center. The circuit board had gone bad and they replaced it for free under warranty. Oh well, two weeks later and my welder is back, although that put me two weeks behind on the project I am working on.
So I get back at it and I weld maybe 4-5 days for about 30 minutes each day, probably less actually.
Tonight I go out to weld on my spring perches on the the axle so I can fab up my rear frame and suspension this weekend and CLICK - SAME PROBLEM AS BEFORE!
It is doing the exact same thing and now I NEED this welder for this weekend. I am pissed. I had a cheapie Campbell Housefield flux-core unit that I sold to get this Hobart with gas capability and that thing lasted me for years with no problems.
I am pissed. I am building a Camaro to give me brother-in-law when he gets home from Iraq (http://www.patriotdream.org ) and I am on a tight time crunch, I can't waste another two weeks on this freaking welder!
