We had a bad break on the trail this weekend, which ended up being repaired with a welder that another guy was carrying. It looked like the pictures that Metaltec put up of the Ready Welder but it said Lincoln on it I think. We had 2 batteries on the ground, connected in series and that welder rocked! So my question is, which welder to get for trail use? The battery based welder seemed perfectly adequate-without any hard mount alternater based complexity. So which portable welder to buy and why? I want to buy only one, and I have 3 rigs that I go places in. I want to spend this $ only once. That is going to be my Christmas present to myself. Christmas may be early this year!
