I’m very excited because today we received a big shiny red package from our friends at Lincoln Electric. Lincoln is the world’s leading manufacturer of welding equipment, so you know by definition that whatever they send is going to get me excited!
Our box contained a new POWER MIG 180 Dual – Model K3018-2 MIG Welder. This welder gets its name from the fact that its a dual voltage welder, meaning that it can operate using either 110v or 220/230v. All you need to do is plug in the appropriate cable, and weld!

Lincoln Electric is Running a Special Offer
Right now Lincoln is running a $100 rebate offer, OR you can get that entire box of goodies that I opened at the end for free with the purchase of a PowerMIG 180 Dual! That basically means that if you’re just getting started you can purchase a PowerMIG plus get basically every accessory you need to literally open it up and start welding today! This is a REALLY good deal for a complete starter package on a nice little welder.
For the record – Lincoln Electric is not a sponsor, no money has changed hands here, or anything like that. I’m just telling you exactly what I think. So if you’ve been thinking about starting welding, you need something nice and portable, or you just want to upgrade from a little Harbor Freight “toy” welder, now’s not a bad time to do it.
Full POWER MIG 180 Dual Review Coming Soon
After I get it home and have a chance to play with it and get familiar we’ll do a follow up video review and I’ll give you the scoop on how it compares to others, and we’ll also do a fun project with it just for grins.
If you have specific projects that you’d like to learn how to make leave me a suggestion in the comments below and I’ll pick one to demonstrate how to do the build.
