    looking at one locally. primarily be used for sheetmetal type work, and tacking my K1500 frame together so that i can take it to the shop and use one of the big Millers on it. the sheetmetal work will be mostly body stuff on derby cars and enduro cars, so i dont need a huge welder. just wondering about the durability of this particuar unit, and will it fit the bill for what im looking for?

    I have a Powwer Mig 110 and it does fine for light work. You can do up to 1/4 inch with 2 passes. I use a lincoln arc for heavy stuff. The problem with the power migs is getting parts locally. I needed a new regulator and the only place I found it was on the Internet (mytools.com) Other than that it does just fine.
