A Quick Look At the Miller Millermatic Series
The Classic Miller welding helmet offers some of the essentials you’ll need in a top welding helmet: such as two arc censors, a magnifying lens holder, extra protective lens covers, and a hard hat adaptor. It weighs in at a light 16 oz, reducing neck strain for welding over long periods of time and it flips on the shade in a speedy 1/10,000 of a second. While it doesn’t offer four sensors or X mode options like the higher end Miller Digital Elite welding helmet, it’s a great value for welders who want to get started with welding projects, and you can’t beat the price.
Overview of the Millermatic Series
The Millermatic 140 Auto-Set and 180 Auto-Set are Miller’s most popular MIG welders and stand among the best welders in their class with their patented auto-set technology that makes it easy to input your material and wire details so that the machine can set your amperage and wire speed for you. This takes a lot of guess work out of the welding process, and is one the of the reasons why MIG welders say that the Miller machines make it possible to ‘point and shoot’ their welds.
Keep in mind that Auto-Set is designed to work with mild steel and solid core wire that is .024 and .030 while welding with C25 shielding gas (75% Argon, 25% CO2). Of course you can adjust your settings on a Millermatic depending on your situation, and it still remains one of the easiest welders to use.
Both welding machines come ready for a spool gun addition so that you can easily work with aluminum without the wire getting bunched up in the feeder. They also offer thermal overload protection, which acts as an insurance policy of sorts for your welding machine, ensuring that it never becomes overheated when you weld past your duty cycle.
Remember that most welders at Baker’s Gas and Welding come with free shipping and a steep price discount, saving customers nearly $200 for most Miller welding machines.
The Millermatic 141 Auto-Set Welder
With the Millermatic 141 Auto-set, you’ll have a premium all-in-one wire welder that welds 24 gauge – 3/16 in. (0.8-4.8mm) mild steel and can switch between solid core wire and flux core wire.
This is the ideal machine for lighter welding projects around the home or in a shop. Some reviewers noted that this welding machine can even weld metals thicker that specified in its ratings, so keep that in mind as you review both of these trusted machines.
