yeah sorry about that mix up ... i meant 3/16" not 3/8" lol. that would be a little much for a bumper.
i've talked myself into getting a little better quality ... i reallly like the hh140 my friend has one and he loves it.
i've found it for $490 locally with setups for gas or flux core (or the welder, autodimming mask, and leather welding gloves for $550)
after i get the exhaust manifold replaced, rear pinion seal replaced, and track bar replaced, i'll be gettin this i think.
whaddaya think of the price?
edit: what do you think about getting factory refurbished welders? i honestly wouldn't care if it wasn't new. http://www.toolking.com/products/517...ebase=500500AR
