Good home use welder
This is the first Synergic welder I've used with only the one adjustment knob. I have had to adjust my technique a little to adapt to changing my travel speed instead of wire feed speed like on my commercial MIG welder at work. After about 20 minutes of welding I was producing good welds, don't be deterred by the single knob. I was impressed by the amount of power that a compact welder on a 10amp plug was capable of. I have set mine up to use argon blend of gas and have had very good results of weld quality and penetration. Don't expect this we...lder to penetrate into the heavier steel above about 5mm thick easily. It's best used for lighter duty work like rust repair and home fabrication. It's simplicity to use is stand out, I have taught both my teenagers how to do some basic welding and they both picked it up without much trouble. One bit of feedback for the UniMig designer, can you add a handle at the back and front of the case? The strap that it comes with is fine for carrying it, however its easier to grab the cables and the welder when moving it across a bench.

My first mig
It’s a nice little welder, some parts are a bit cheaply made and will need replacing like the handle/ trigger as these will break if dropped or stood on. All in all it’s easy to use, lite and functions well.

Questions & Answers
can you get a gasless stainless steel wire? If so what is the product number
Do you have a chart for recommended settings for different steel thicknesses, i.e what should I set the synergic control to for 3mm mild steel using 0.8 solid core wire.
no chart just let viper do the job
No I don’t, I put up to 3/4 strength power for 5-6mm plate and down to about 1/4 power for 2mm. As Wayne said, just let the viper do the job. Every mig welder needs adjustment for metal thickness until you get to know your welder and what settings are best, a chart is only a guide.
