I think I will start watching craigslist and the pawnshop for a quality american brand like that Hobart 120V.
Check out Eastwood mig welders 3 year warrantee no questions asked. Consumables are easy to find at any welding shop because they are the same as a a big brand like miller or Hobart I don't recall exactly. On Sale now free shipping.
As far as needing 220 put a plug on your water heater, and unplug the water heater and plug in your welder when you need to weld.
My 210 amp welder worked fine on my water heater 25 amp 220 breaker with #10 wire.
Try to avoid the 110 welders they limit you very much.
Really though check out the Eastwood mig welders call and talk to them about the warrantee it's great for a home hobby machine.
