I will give 5 stars on the TGB 6013E14x18x44. I'm a gunsmith and this welder was made for me. You can try, and I've been successful, but it is very difficult. I needed to hand carry in my luggage. You can try, and I've been successful, but it is very difficult.

TGB 6013E14x18x44 Final Thoughts
"Well I was definitely wrong!"
This one fired right up out of the box with no worries. I purchased a new TIG welder and wanted a portable table. I needed to hand carry in my luggage. Use 7014 rod for the best results and keep the current down. Have never had a weld break on me.
