I guess my point is you can have the same flexibility as that lincoln for less money ... It is like buying snap-on tools ... yes the quality is there but sometimes you pay more only for the name. (of course this coming from someone with 95% snap-on hand tools LOL ) Which by the way if you or someone you know is interested I have 40k plus in tools I would let go for 6k ... heck the boxes alone (3 of them) are almost worth that
What could POSSIBLY go wrong?

Ya right now I have a Lincoln 140. Been running flux core through it but it's MIG capable. Plenty of power for my needs but I want a TIG at some point. Just took a short class at EMCC that wetted my whistle. Not high on the money list at the moment though

Check out Matheson gas on outer hammond street they have a similar unit (can't remember the name brand) for around $750 if I recall correctly. The guy I spoke to (about a year ago) said they have a few out in the field and everybody that has them are very satisfied. ... after seeing what Bill's old purse welder would do I think I am going to end up with one of these http://www.eastwood.com/mig-welder-110vac-135a-output.html

I think I just found my next welder. Too bad I don't have $1000 lying around lol. Lincoln just came out with it and it combines all three processes (MIG, TIG, and Stick)
