My New MIG Welder

Howdy Chaps.

I've been considering getting something more compact and so this one came about on special from SCA. 
I still have my original Mig O Mag 220 from back in the early 90's which has been in storage for the last 24 years. That gave me several years of great service and want to give it a going over before putting back in to service as it's been a while since firing it up. It has been stored well so I don't anticipate any real issues. The inner torch liner may need replacing as the welding wire used to snag and birds nest inside at the roller, but apart from that it was an amazing machine.

This little CIG 130 has many good reviews and hopefully should be a great addition to my tool family. When I need to do those odd little weld jobs, I don't really want to have to bring out the behemoth just to do 5 minutes work. This is where this little guy comes in.
Also, going to keep it a gasless Mig too for ease of use and no bottles to deal with. I have also purchased gasless wire as you will see in the pics.

Here's my original Mig Welder
