Re: Best welder for the $$$
I bought a Lincoln 135 this summer as well. I got it on the internet, (welder, regulator, gas solenoid, all the goodies you need to weld out of the box except gas for 499 bucks)
I had to pay another 23 dollars and some change for the barge freight to alaska, but for the price I thought I would give it a try.
So far I have used it weld lots of stuff on the jeep. It is my first mig machine, and I have been completely happy. It was cheap (relative I guess), it works great, I would buy it again, and it has "stick on amperage" worth at least 500 amps.... (theres a nascar sticker on the side, but I can't remeber if the blue sticker or the red sticker gives you more amps....) so all you guys that have those 220v machines, you aint got nothing on me!

For a first welder, a 110v machine is probably an excellent choice. I will hang on to mine as long I can weld...
