Overview plus

Whether you’re an experienced welder, a DIY enthusiast, or a complete beginner, a stick welder is an excellent tool to have. The PrimeWeld STICK160 110v/220v Dual Voltage Stick Welder is ultra-compact; about the size of a lunch box. On top of that, it is a super lightweight welding machine. This 12-pound, 110v/220v welding machine has the 160-amp power to weld 3/8-inch steel.

“Unbelievable how something so small and portable works as well as the larger machines. And at such a great price. Great Buy!”

— Jennifer, Proud Owner of a STICK160

This 110v stick welder can run up to 120 amps, enough to weld a 1/4-inch plate. Furthermore, this welder is TIG-capable, giving you a choice of processes for every job. You’ll be able to weld sheet metal as thin as 24 gauge. This is a perfect welding scenario where you’ll be grateful for the TIG function.

Dual Voltage Feature

The STICK160's lightweight build and compact size works well with its dual-voltage input power. Because it runs on either 120 or 240 volts, this is a great machine when you’re doing repairs for family and friends. Put this little box in the trunk with some leads, a batch of rods, and you’re on your way. This shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) machine is also a great choice for farm, fabrication, or construction. The possibilities are endless.

“Love this little welder! Very good little stick welder and definitely worth the money. Dual voltage and packs a big punch, yet can still handle thin stock without burning through.”

— Henry, Happy PrimeWeld Customer.

Regardless of the power situation at your job site, this PrimeWeld stick welder has you covered. Included in the box is an adapter pigtail to plug the 240-power cord into a 120 outlet. You can work just about anywhere because the STICK160 is generator-ready as well.

Voltage Reduction Device

The Voltage Reduction Device (VRD) built in to the electrode circuit lets you reduce the stick’s voltage when you’re not welding. The power at the exposed stick lowers from 62 volts to 16 volts by touching a button. VRD lessens the danger of contacting the electrode when you’re working in tight or cluttered places. As every good welder knows, safety is key.

Welding Applications

Adding a TIG welding kit to your STICK160 gives you the power to handcraft those fine-quality welds that the TIG process excels at. Especially on auto body sheet metal. When appearance is important — as with flower racks, gating, motorcycles, and outdoor furniture — TIG is the way to go. It’ll let you finish those visible joints for a clean, professional look.

How to Use plus

How to Use the STICK160

Installation Setup for SMAW (Stick) Welding

stick160 set up

  1. Turn the power source on and select the MMA function with the TIG/MMA selector button.
  2. Connection of Output Cables: Two weld output receptacles are available on this welding machine. For Stick welding, the electrode holder is connected to the positive receptacle, while the ground lead (workpiece) is connected to the negative receptacle. This is known as DC+ polarity. However, various electrodes require a different polarity for optimum results and careful attention should be paid to the polarity. Refer to the electrode manufacturer’s information for the correct polarity.
  3. Set the welding current relevant to the electrode type and size being used as recommended by the electrode manufacturer.
  4. Place the electrode into the electrode holder and clamp tight.
  5. Scratch the electrode against the workpiece to create an arc and hold the electrode steady to maintain the arc.
  6. Hold the electrode slightly above the workpiece to maintain the arc while traveling at an even speed to create an even weld deposition.
  7. To finish the weld, break the arc by quickly snapping the electrode away from the workpiece.
  8. Wait for the weld to cool and carefully chip away the slag to reveal the weld metal underneath.

Selector Switches plus

Selector Switches

stick160 stick welder selector switch functions

  1. Abnormal Indicator: Lights up if there is a problem with the welder operation.
  2. VRD Indicator: Under MMA mode, long press the MMA/TIG selector button for 8 seconds to turn on or off VRD function. Lights means VRD function is on. Lights out means VRD function is off
  3. MMA/Lift TIG Selector Button: Provides selection of TIG or MMA (Stick) welding modes. Selecting TIG position provides for TIG welding function. Selecting MMA position provides for Stick welding function.
  4. Power Switch: This switch powers the machine up when switched to the on position and powers the machine down when switched to the off position. NOTE: The On/Off switch is on the back of the STICK160.
