Re: cheap entry level welder ????
$900.00 for a circuit board!!!??? Not trying start an argument but this is not even close to being an actual price for most of the Miller/Hobart wire feeders repacement circuit boards IF you should need one.
I think if most people compared a HF welder to a Miller/Hobart or Lincoln
the quality becomes pretty obvious. Welders are unlike a lot of other tools in the shop where often a cheap tool will do the same job as a more expensive one. Welding is a "process" and a good welder has more going for it than just the fact that it makes an arc and feeds wire. I'm not saying a person can't do quality work with a HF welder but the quality, service and support of a Miller/Hobart make the extra price worth it to me.
