I can't believe how light weight the light-duty welders are these days..
I think mine must weigh about 15 pounds. Now I have to do is learn to make good welds!

Xringer, Does your welder have a switch mode power supply or is it all solid state without large heavy transformers?

Yeah, it all solid state and that makes it very light to carry. I hear they have one just like it
for less money at HF, when it's on sale. I saw a comparison video youtube
but didn't watch it yet.. There are a bunch.

I picked a HF (Harbor Freight) portable welding table a few months back,
but have not started practicing welding yet. (Due to medical problems).
I'm planning on starting up when the weather isn't so cold..
