I have spent time on Super Duty sites, Chevy sites and TDI sites. THIS ONE has more useful information than the others combined! Now with that out of the way..
I am planning,,,and planning...for my project build. Like others I am restricted on voltage. I own my condo but do not wish to have 220V ran into the garage though it is in my place. So 110V it is for me. I spent some time on the big 3 sites. Here is what I came up with as possibilites:
SP-140T Wire Feeder 18ga to 5/16" (MP)
Power Mig 140C 18ga to 5/16" (MP)
Millermatic Passport Plus MIG/Wire kicks *** cause its small 24ga to 3/16"
Millermatic 140 auto-set 24ga to 3/16"
Millermatic 211 auto-set w/ MVP 24ga to 3/16" & 18ga to 3/8" aluminum
Handler 140 24ga to 1/4" limited on aluminum
They are all within $1,000 of each other. I want to do exhaust, frame, sheet metal and such. I also want to do aluminum such as diamond plate and angle. I have seen many of these mentioned in this thread. I suppose they all have their pros and cons. Space is a big concern of mine as I have a 1-car garage.
I am also thinking of getting a small stick welder for thicker metals. Neither site for these below say how thick they can go. Do any of you know?
