Is the millermatic challenger 172 a decent MIG welder?
I am about to get me a welder. I have about $700 in the budget for it. I don't forsee welding anything bigger than 1/4 inch since this will be used mainly for fab work (bumpers, sheetmetal, brackets, rollcages eventually). I am about to go out and get the millermatic challenger 172 and am wondering if any of y'all have any experience with it. Would I do better to save up a few more months and get the millermatic 185 or will this work well enough. The last thing I want to do is get one that will not do what I need it to do. That's why I'm not getting the $300 craftsman. Thanks
