Anyone one with experience owning and using a century 125gs, and would like to advise a novice on its capabilities, it would be greatly appreciated.
I have been tempted to buy a mig welder setup for some time, was looking at the lincoln weldpak (120v feed) with gas hookup. I prefer this brand because it is well recognized and has a web site, i can find little information about the century online. But the lincoln with gas kit will cost me around ~CDN800 bucks. I have the chance to buy the century unit on clearance for CDN375 still in the box, never used.
I want to know whether it would be really worth to spend the extra money for the lincoln, in particular:
-any significant features on the lincoln lacking on the century unit
-century's capability to weld aluminum (the lincoln datasheet mentions this capability, no mention on the century)
Also, it looks like the century has only 4 heat settings, and a fixed gas regulator. Not sure if this means too much.
Any tips greatly appreciated. Thanks, Bryan
