    it is Lincon's counterpart to it. Better? Eh I think the Miller/Lincoln thing generally boils down to what you like better. I like Lincolns, even though I've never had a problem with a Miller(or used them extensively). I just love this machinea fter using it at school. Ours isn't the C(no 120 outlets on it). I'll likely get the C whenever I get around to getting one. I had a Lincoln 175 and this machine blows it away in adjustment and power. I can lay SUCH a nice bead compared to the 4 or 5 preset settings machines. I never realized what I was missing.

    Oh Pete, I never asked, what did you pay for this thing? Retail is 2100 I see just wondering what you got it for. We have a local dealer that usually pretty good under MSRP. There was a used on on Ebay very recently for $1000 I really wish I had jumped on.
