Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Welder for my projects! This works great to get all my projects made. Finishing a custom barbeque now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Operate I was looking for an inexpensive machine for smaller jobs and this Hobart fits the bill. I don’t quite have a whole 2 lb roll through it yet but so far it’s smooth and appropriate for the smaller fabrication jobs I’ve completed with it. $240 well spent.
Date published: 2018-10-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and Convenient. It’s smaller size and compactness makes it easy to store and haul around to other jobs. Good unit for the light to medium duty jobs.

Is this a good welder to build a pipe fence?

The Toolmate 100 will be OK if higher duty cycle is not needed and material thicknesses are under 3/16”.

Would this be good to use on 16 gauge steel which is also located at tractor supply?

Asked by: Burnsq
Thank you for your question. The Toolmate can weld 18 gauge up to 3/16”. So yes it can weld 16 gauge. Please let us know of any other questions we can assist you with.

I would like to weld a jack onto the tongue of a 10 ft disc. Would I be able to weld the jack onto the tongue which is about 1/2" to 3/4" thick steel.

Asked by: rao1811
The Toolmate 100 would be too small for this application.

I just opened the box and it seems that the welding tip and gun are pre assembled. Is this common, as the instructions tell you how to assemble it? Also, how many tips come with it? I have a .30 attached and two spare .30 tips. No .35 tips, however.

Asked by: New guy
The gun does come assembled and it will only include two .030 tips, no .035 tips.
