    Just recently sold my old,old Blue point 135 which I had no issues with in regards to small work that I needed to do.

    It worked on everything I encountered, within my skill range, but I was using shielding gas.

    Recently picked up a Hobart Multi handler 200 and haven't had a chance to take it out of the box.

    Still have a Hobart stickmate LX for the old school dirty work.
