Re: Welder for Christmas! What kind?
I'll second Jaffer's comment on the Miller 175/185 they are great boxes.
A suitable substitue would be the Hobart in the same range, are made by same company with slightly less heavy-duty parts.
Coming in significantly cheaper and in the 110 arena is the Lincoln weldpack 3200 HD it's a 135 amp rig that will run you about $430 at Homie Despot. This is what I use currently. It's nicely portable. My plans are to augment it with a Miller 210 for serious work as funds allow.
