If he is interested in SMAW he should look at purchasing a AC/DC machine. I know that there are 7018 AC electodes out there, but 7018 DC is the ticket. I don't even remember the last time i used a 6013 rod, even though i have 10lbs of them. Also, if he does end up with a stick welder i would highly recommend an oven for his 7018 electrodes. I use a Keen oven, which is a piece of garbage, but i got what i paid for. It costs about 60 dollars a year to run my oven 24/7. I paid about 400 for Hobart's Stickmate LX, which is a step down from Miller's comparable machine that is quite a bit more. If i would have done it again i would have bought a used AC/DC machine.

To be honest I haven't really considered any other type of welder besides a MIG bc i was told mig is the easiest to learn on.

It is the easiest to learn on. It is also good to know how to stick weld.

Bringing an old thread up. When you posted in my build thread I realized you're local. Did you ever snag a welder? I have 3 at my house in Jville. A Lincoln A/C 225, a Hobart 140 and a Millermatic 175.

I picked up the Millermatic a little over a month ago from a guy in Wilmington for $500. Keep searching craigslist, deals are out there
