I would look at either the Miller or Lincoln 175amp 220V mig welders. The Miller and Lincoln 175plus have infinite variability in the current control so it's a little more tuneable. The Lincoln promig175 and Hobart are basically retail versions of the above w 4 or 5 steps between settings, so not as tuneable. Look on ebay, there's some decent deals out there.What should I be looking for to be able to fix sheetmetal and fab bumpers and whatnot?

It all started with cutting the front fenders for the sliders - funny how that works! It will all be lined and slidered by the Roundup (gotta have a goal to workon my junk)!
BTW: This all lead me to this thread - want to patch up some stuff before I line it ... hince the welder
I'm just finishing up a welding class (stick) and I'm wrestling w/ the same decision....it's not easy. Thin sheetmetal and heavy bumpers are 2 different beasts, and no one machine or method is going to do everything well.tucker74 said:Ya - that's pretty much what I thought, been looking for a smaller MIG ... but then you get into the whole thick thing.
