Rated 5 out of 5 by from Forney easy weld fci mig welder I have used this to weld quarter inch material. It does a fine job you just have to go a little bit slower.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t purchase this item. Don’t buy it, it’s a waste of time. First, it wouldn’t feed the wire unless the lead was in a perfectly straight line. Then when the power was set to the highest level, it wouldn’t cause enough penetration to weld a 1/4” bolt to a piece of flat iron. After almost getting enough penetration, it stopped feeding again. I attempted to remove the wire, so that I could refeed it again, but it was lodged and broke off on both ends. At this point I took it back to TSC. The staff there were very understanding and after I explained the issues I had, gladly took the item back, as it was less than 4 hours since I made the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It did the job. It's confusing why the name of this welder says MIG. It is not a MIG welder, it is a flux-core welder. There is no accommodation in the welder to ever have gas hooked up. Anyway, I knew it was an FC welder when I bought it and I was in a bind and this welder did the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Flux Core Welder I really like this welder. After borrowing a friends Ironton 125, I decided that I should have my own. I wanted a welder with a DC inverter for smoother arc and the ability to power with a generator. I considered the Titanium 125 from HF, but chose the Forney 140 FC-i for several reasons. 1. It can handle a 10lb spool. 2. The leads are 8ft long. 2ft longer than most in this class of welder. I have appreciated the extra length several times. 3. Build quality looks a little better. The wire feed looks similar on all of these welders, but the Forney has better cables and gun. 4. Forney has customer support in the US. Forney says that this welder only works with 0.030 wire. That is what i use, but you could run 0.035. The drive roller has grooves for both wire sizes, so you would just need to get a 0.035 contact tip. I have had great luck with Lincoln NR-211 MP and Hobart Fabshield 21b. The Lincoln has less spatter that is easier to clean up, but the Hobart has a little bit smoother welds. Both are fine. The edge goes to Hobart, because it come in 2 lb spools.

Does it have a spot for welding gas 

Asked by: Mttc
The Forney Easy Weld 140FC-i does not have a spot to inset inert gas. This machine is a Flux Core welder only. You may look into the Forney Easy Weld 140 MP that is a gas or gas-less MIG welder. Thank you for your question.

Can i run it off house hold 115 amp out let

Asked by: Bullfrog39
This machine was designed to be used with a 20 AMP breaker, and therefore all of the published performance data is referring to a 20 AMP system.

Is this machine ready to go right out of the box.

Asked by: Mitch52
The Forney Easy Weld 140FC-i is ready to go out of the box as long as you have .030 flux core wire and required PPE. Thank you for your question.
