Best Value

Titanium

Average Finish: 1.5

Purchased for: $320

The Lincoln came in first place if one takes everything into account, including the length and quality of the clamps and cables. However, Titanium was a close second if we factor out the quality of the clamps and cables. Titanium came out on top with an average finish of 1.3. It's definitely not fair to compare a multi-process welder like the Lincoln solely on a cost basis, but we did it anyway to help those trying to decide which way to go. If you plan to buy a very affordable welder, my suggestion is to go ahead and purchase a current meter for around $30 to $40.

Best Low Cost

Hone

Average Finish: 4.1

Purchased for: $90

Hone

It's pretty rare for me to discourage people from buying a specific brand, but I would recommend avoiding the Ssimder and the S7. In my opinion, the Hone is definitely the way to go if you're looking for a welder for under a hundred dollars.
