OT - Welders ?

I really wanted to buy a Lincoln AC 225 arc welder from sears, but I don't know if they carry it anymore, if they do not, do you think a craftsman brand welder would be any good? Thanks for any info!

Basically to compare them, just look at items like max. amperage available and the duty cycle at that amperage. The lincoln may be 255 amp at 35% duty cycle, but the sears could be 260 amp at 15% duty cycle which = bad. These are numbers I just pulled off the top of my head so I'm not sure what the actual numbers are, but you get the idea. I like my lincoln 255 alot though.

I think they are both rated at 20% full capacity actually...
