Re: Thinking about buying a mig-welder...
i have a lincoln sp160.it performs very well,using mig mix.
you can cheap out,but if you want quality welds you wont regret
spending the extra.
its a practice thing,for the most part.
i've been reviving my stick welding skills,learned if i slow down on my passes
the welds improve dramatically.
cannot stress enough how important safety gear is.
even the footwear is important,get one blob of molten metal in your boot
and it will cause a world of hurt and suffering.
even with the good boots,i find myself checking for good foot placement.
when shopping for electronic helmet,compare a few,the faster they switch the longer it takes to get a headache.
