I have a Hobart 187. Its small but welds on 220v. Got it on eBay for 400

At front sight you either don't pass, graduate, or distinguished graduate.

If you DG the course you are allowed to take the advanced courses for that type of weapon. If you have DG certs in pistol rifle and shotgun you can take the advanced 3 gun classes, yadda yadda

  • Hobart 190
  • Miller 180
  • miller 211 (awesome machine cause it can run 110 or 220.)
  • Lincoln 175/180 (I think the new ones can run 110 or 220 also)


They all should be able to run fluxcore wire but most if not all of those come with a set of gauges. All you'd need is the bottle itself and you're welding with gas then. I personally like having both options. In the garage 100% of the time I use gas. If I'm outside where it's breezy I can use the fluxcore without the gas and still weld. To change up between fluxcore and gas takes probably about 20 minutes. It's been so long since I've done it but I think I had to change out the liner real quick, change the power polarity, disconnect the gas solenoid and then just swap wires.




I'm 99% most modern day 220V welders will come with everything you need to run either and the only additional cost is the bottle. The MIG (gas) wire is cheaper then fluxcore though. I know I broke even and am now saving money running gas over fluxcore wire just by the cost savings on the wire alone. It paid for my bottle purchase ages ago. As long as you remember to turn the gas off when you're done the gas lasts quite a while assuming you have a reasonable sized bottle. Once you buy the bottle the first time, the gas is cheap considering how long it lasts.


SMOKING DEAL!!! If he still has it? If it comes with that stand and bottle too that's beyond smoking!!! That's pretty much the exact setup I've built my whole truck, the race truck, and every welding job I've done for anyone on this forum as well...

My pup is sick :-(

He was wheezy when we brought him home but seemed more like allergies or something. Sneezed a bit. Saturday night he started hacking a lil. Sunday he had a little hacking session (4 or 5 hacks) 4 or 5 times, and then last night I woke up to him hacking a few times. Poor fella. Otherwise he's acting 100% normal.

Good thing we had his initial check up and stitches removal appointment scheduled for this afternoon.

Haha and you said that you don't want kids.


Stitches? Did he have his bean bags cut off?

Yup. They get the chop when they are brought into the SPCA.

?If it was a kid I'd let it ride a bit longer since they'll likely get better and can tell me whats wrong. i have no idea how dogs work, this could be something or it could be nothing.

Khris - thanks for the recommendations; I just got back from Vegas 4X4 where the same subject came up and they also strongly recommended using the Miller 211 (they have it in their shop) because it is so easy to use including the "automatic" setting. I will look into that lincon one too.

Marn - perhaps he has kennel cough (common for dogs in shelters)? Good plan to get it checked right away. I hope all turns out well.


On a good note; after a few minutes of poking around underneath my rig, LarryN @ Vegas4X4 nailed the problem with my death wobble, the trackbar mounting bolt was a tad too long so while it gave the appearance of being good and tight, it was running into the axle tube instead of completely tightening the trackbar down. A shorter bolt and a nice bumpy/curvy test drive later and all is well

Just wanted to say that my wife and I had a great time on the trails and at the Pioneer Saloon. Good to meet some cool new people. We're looking forward to the next trip.

Khris, I replied to the CL ad, if I end up buying, I expect welding lessons!


Seriously though.. Given the choice, would you go for the Miller 211 or the Lincoln 180 HD. The 211 seems like a better machine and more dummy proof, but there doesn't seem to be as many people selling them cheap.

I honestly have zero experience with the 211, I've just heard it's an excellent machine at still sorta kinda somewhat of an entry level price!

I bought my lincoln as a refurbed unit back in about '06. I've built a bumper to bumper caged Ranger, my toyota, the TPF race truck, My exploder stuff, 2 caged jeeps, a few bumpers, and countless misc little small projects here and there for me and other friends/people.

The two jeep cages I've done...








And the other...











I've had virtually no issues with my refurbed Lincoln! The stuff I had going on a few months ago was literally a cleaning issue. I really can't complain at all with my lincoln. I think mine is actually a 175HD and I think the one in that CL ad is just a newer version of my welder.


As for lessons, it would take me probably 10 minutes at the most to show you what I do... Then really it's just a matter of grabbing a bunch of scrap metal and practicing. I don't honestly know if I do it right or wrong, I've never been taught, I just got a welder and started welding and what I do is what I've figured out over time. I can't remember having a weld fail though because of the weld itself, any failures have always been design flaws, not the weld's fault. LOL
