thanks map for posting the welder info

the harbor freight is improved model 90 amp knurled wire feed rollers 89 bucks!!! on special
but no gas shielding capacity all the welders you referenced have the gas regulator

i will sit tight a few days and see if anyone has a used unit with gas
local to los angeles and then make my decision if nothing turns up that makes sense

having fun with all my grinders, angle iron cutters, and various wire brushes found that the wire brush -twisted wires on a polisher works great for removing paint or? to clean and prep to bear metal
not too fast with the variable speed of the polisher that things are prone to flying off or at you
always wear good gloves and great full face shield!!!
also loving various mandrels to shape the cut frame tubes and stays to round for sleeve reinforced connections

stay safe
