I have been lurking on this great group for a long time. I have
decided to begin welding with a 110V MIG package...I have an immediate
need for patching sheet metal on my old Subaru. I love auto repair, so
I am sure I will use it for other sheet metal in the future.
After reviewing this group, I am confident that either the Lincoln 135T
(ProMig or 3200HD) or Hobart Handler 140 will serve me well. But I
have seen in a few places comments that the Lincoln has a more
stable/sweeter arc than the Hobart (or Miller) in this category. Since
I am a beginner and will be working in some tough positions, I want the
most stable arc I can get.
Can anyone comment from recent experience about the arc quality among
the 110V migs (Miller, Lincoln, Hobart, even HTP)?
