Re: Welder

Lincoln welders are ok, if you can get your hands on a Miller, they are excellent MIG and TIG welders. I would get a more versatile model, one that has the power to do everything from exhaust pipe, to shock mounts, to even frame rails if needed.

Re: Welder

I've got the similar unit, sold at Home Depot, without the regulator. Works great for stuff up to 3/16" thick, but thicker metal needs many passes. That's not bad if you practice and get good at it, just takes longer. I have an old arc welder I use for the thick stuff. If you have the money, go for the bigger 220V units with interchangeable tips and wire. My 2 cents......

Re: Welder

I found a Miller flux cored wire feed welder at a pawn shop for $160. Haven't had any problems with it. I used it to put one of my floor pans in. I would still like to have an arc welder just for general purpose and for welding the thick stuff.
