I use a Hobart Mig Machine 175 amp 220 volt with Argon/co2 shield gas. If I were you I would buy from a local weld supply shop. Get a machine with gas to shield, yes its more expensive but well worth it. Wire feed without gas plain out sucks in comparison. Stay mainline with lincoln ,miller or hobart. The little 100 amp machine is ok for bicycle building but you really need 150 or more to do most jobs. Welding is a skill so you will need to practice on scrapp
