So I don't know how to weld but I hate paying people to do stuff I know I could learn. So I have a list of things I need to do to the truck and lots of it invloves welding, so I was thinking about putting these repairs off and putting the money toward a unit and doing this stuff myself. Just read a good review in Custom Trucks about the HTP MIG 140. I know very little about welding and the equipment available so please help educate me with you experiences. A wire fed welder, seems like it would be easy to learn. Sound like MIG is the way to go but its a lot more expensive (and the machines more complex). Help me out. I know there has got to be an older thread on this subject so perhaps someone could just direct me to it. Thanks!
