Reviews

Forney Forney Easy Weld 261, 140 FC-i MIG Welder, 261 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use. Put the wire on and plugged it in. Easy to use right out of the box. Seems to well worth the price. Good for a weekend warrior.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst welder ever It wouldnt pull wire and wouldnt weld 2 paperclips together
Date published: 2020-09-09
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a MIG welder I was looking for a small, inexpensive MIG welder, so I looked at one of these in the store. This is not a MIG welder as advertised. It is simply a flux wire welder. there are no guages or controls to attach an inert shielding gas. Probably not a bad FLUX WIRE WELDER, but misleading ad!!
Date published: 2020-08-20
Rated 3 out of 5 by from They sold me a used welder Seems like a nice welder but not only does tractor supply charge $20.00 more than any other store for this welder, they sold me a used welder as if it were brand new never opened product and charged me full price. When I opened the box at home I found slag all over the ground clamp.

Questions & Answers

What thickness material will it weld?

Asked by: Nellie 71

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.

Can I use hobart contact tips with this welder? I don't see the Forney tips on the tractor supply site.

Asked by: Datasmasher
Yes,you can use Hobart contact tips with the Forney 261. The Hobart tips are Tweco style which is the same style as that is needed for the Forney 261.

Would this work for welding up a jeep frame? (i.e. the safety cap kits?)
