I have recently become a proud member of the Hobart EZ 125 family. I am impressed with what this little welder can do...as seems to be the general consensus from other members on this board as well.. I will be putting it through its paces the next couple of months, on a bunch of projects involving implements and attachments that I want to make/repair for a garden tractor. The weekend project is replacing some panels on a brushcutter.
The flux core wire seems to be quite expensive. I am paying just over $19 for a 2 lb. Hobart brand spool at Fleet Farm. Is there a better, common place out there that has better pricing on wire? I know it would be more economical to go to an 8" spool, instead of the 4", but I plan on using the welder at home and the cottage, so weight is a factor.
Also, I am a little confused on setting the tension for the rollers on this machine. Can someone explain the proper setting for the wire tension knob above the rollers?
