It's ok. It does join the material together.
This welder is about as cheap as they get. I have had this welder for a number of years now. I actually got it for free and replaced the dodgy wire feeder with a quality metal gear drive one for about $ 43 from eBay seller in au. Then it functions as good as can be expected for what it is. It's only got high and low power. Heat and penetration is governed by wire speed and pass speed. Would be great to have more control over volts and amps to suit different material thicknesses but it is what it is . I'm a Heavy vehicle body builder and experi...enced with a number of welding processes so all in all I'm not totally disappointed in its performance for its price point. It was free after all. Mine is the old yellow version. A bit bigger than the newer model. Since upgrading the wire feeder results have been acceptable. not great but not too shoddy either. Fairly stable arc but not as good as a more expensive machine. Takes practice to get desired results. Spatter can be accepted. Used anti spatter spray and things turn out okay with minimal cleanup. I have found the bossweld flux core wire to perform the best and cleanest . Im due for an upgrade shortly and will invest in a much better quality machine with gas and gasless mig stick Tig inverter. But overall the little ozito mwr090 has performed well enough over the years from car body and trailer repairs to building a boat windscreen and steering console. Mower repairs. Fencing repairs. Car port structure to Fire pits and wood heaters. Welding cart trolley. Hundreds of jobs. Nothing broken yet. Sometimes I back it up with the little stick welder on thicker materials just to be sure but it works fine for general light repair jobs and light fab work at home. My 8 yr old son can even use it. Great as a first mig welder, just take care of it and it serves its purpose well enough. Would I recommend? Yeah why not. When I upgrade I'm not getting rid of it .
