He didn't want to spend $300 or so for a Lincoln or better name brand. Kind of funny to me, he was a welder through his entire working career and would use almost nothing but Lincoln. Now that he's not a "prefessional tradesman" he will settle for less.
Hey no prob.`s.....
If your dad has welding experience then the 220v dual mig will suit him just fine....I went to LOWE`s and was gonna spend the $300 for their welder But I only need it for part time hobby work....I just got a HB flyer in the mail today and the 220v welder is on sale again, so go get one before they sell out.....I just welded up my kickstand and a exhaust muffler, and a few other parts and it works excellant for me.....
Good luck,
Life in the Fast Lane......
