Clarke 130EN MIG
This was my first welder, a Clarke 130EN Gas/Gasless MIG welder. Has a range of 30-130 amps and can run on 110V. Will do up to 1/8" steel, more with a bit of prep.
I did not care for the short torch; it was just over 6'. So I modified it to use a tweco torch:
Here is the adapter I turned out of brass:
That gave me a 12' torch and I could use my other Tweco guns. I also made a Tweco connector for the original gun:
I learned a lot with it and did all kinds of projects. I sold it after getting the Miller and Airco. Actually, I miss its small size and ease of use. However, I needed the garage space.
