Default Napa MigWelder

Ok guys i know these's arn't very good, and i wouldn't buy one!!But i was working on the north end of SantaRosa County today,And they were cleaning out the shop there.I walked past the pile at the road and there it was yelling HELP!!!! So i figured what the hay,picked it put it in the truck.I figured it was shot,when i got home i took the little welder into the shop.Looked it over it seemed ok! Pluged it in hit the power switch it just set there the fan running and no loud hummmmm.It hard a spool of 045 fluxwire in it.Little big for that so i pulled the trigger no wire!! checked the tip it had a 023 tip DUH,So i pulled the tip it took off.looks like i found a new TOY welder to play with.
It seems to be in good shape and i don't know what im going to do with it but it was free so i'll hang it somewhere!!!
