I am in the market for a welder. It been some time since I used one. I know I do not want a buzzbox. A unit with variable feed, 220V and at least a 70ish and 90ish settings.
Why is there a large range of pricing? I and planning to only usde flux core. Would this be good enough on the 90Amp setting for welding Mustang frame work?
Any advice is welcome!

Also keep your eyes peeled for someone selling a used commercial machine, like the SP 200 I use in the shop. If I were to sell it, it would likely be priced in the range of many of the new personal welders, but with much more adjustability, duty cycle, and stitch-weld and spot-weld timers.

IMO, once you start welding, you'll vastly prefer gas shielding, which is what MIG means (metal inert gas). I only use flux core wire for deep penetration fab work, like steel shapes.

There's a lot of VMF'ers out there welding, so I'm sure you'll get lots of advice...

I also have a Hobart and I like it. Here is a good site to do some research one, but I found that the local welding supply store could get it just as cheap. They are also a good source to ask questions.

I also have a Hobart Plasma cutter, but wish I would have bought a bigger one. This one runs on 110 and cuts body panels ok, but struggles with the bigger stuff.
