Anybody used the HF 120 volt **INVERTER** welder?

$129 on sale
Tiny (8 pounds), reasonable duty cycle (35% at full 80 amps, 100% at 50
amps) and DC (not AC) I'm looking for something that would work on .065
and .083" wall tube frames at the races so 3/32 rod would be just fine.
This thing would fit in the bottom of the tool box instead of lugging
around the flux core wire feed!
PS: how about the 240 volt/2.4 kva spot welder for $159??? Supposed to
go to 3/16" (yeh right! but 1/8" maybe?? ie two 16 ga sheets. )

I have another version purchased from HF

to learn to weld. It is very light and does the job for small stuff. It looks like they don't carry the Arcone welder anymore.
I've run a few pounds of rods through mine with no problems and have never set off the thermal shutdown.
