The gas shielded mig is even better, but costs more to buy and use. Fluxcore is a good compromise between price and ease of use.
Thanks so much.
So I did a quick search between Northern Tool and Harbor Frieght
What's the difference between these two



I'm thinking leaning toward the NT because they have 1 year extra warranty. Learners break stuff

They both are generally in the same price bracket (sub 200)
