This is the one I was thinking about. I'm just tired of buying everything made overseas...
I saw that one and almost pulled the trigger on it. Then I found the almost exact same thing at Amazon for almost half the price. Compare the pics. Quite a few re-badged ones. 1659817403949.png https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07W6D23PR/?tag=gbody-20Also imported which I dislike. The Lincoln FC90 looks bad-*ss but I already have a Lincoln MIG. I need a tiny stick welder. Now check this out a guy on Jeep-Forum posted. A Karnage MIG in a suitcase!!! He takes it on the trails. 1659817867190.png

I might try this one. Made in USA 125 amp $99.00
The Yeswelder ARC125 looks nice too. I am not a fan of digital displays since when they quit they are not fixable. A simple dial is all I need. Here is a pretty good review
I checked the entire site. I found this buried in the warranty so it is indeed NOT made in USA. SECTION 18 - GOVERNING LAW These Terms of Service and any separate agreements whereby we provide you Services shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of China.

I own an Everlast Inverter (3-in-1) machine and have had it for almost 5 years now and absolutely love it. But am guessing that's not the price point you want to be at. My brothers and I bought my dad an Amico 160 machine and it came in a hair under $200. Was actually really impressed how well it ran 3/32 rod, though it was plugged into a 240 outlet. It had the arc force feature too. The downside to it? It blew a resister one day using it, and this was maybe after a year and a half. So I ended up finding him a replacement machine, but not sure what brand that one was.

I just ordered an Everlast power 211si with tig package. The list of stuff to fix and built is growing fast.

It figures...
You can also tell by the text who made it. When you see stuff like "Your welding experience will be most pleasurable! Many times better than less better ones".

It figures... The marketing presentation makes it seem that the unit is made by a group of welder afficianoes bringing a their item to market.

I found where it said tested in USA, nothing about made in USA.

And any time the word "kindly" is used as an adverb.

Very few welders are made in USA. Even the big names are having some of there welders made overseas. I have been trying To choose which one to buy for weeks . If you want a cheap welder it’s not make in USA.
