  2. Sorry if this wasn't quick enough. That is a decent welder for the price, but I believe you could find something comparible from Lincoln (much better welder in my opinion) for about $300, that would suit your needs. Also they are a lot more user friendly, which will help the rookie. Yes, I have welded for a living, but now I inspect others welds.

    One of the welders I have here at work is a Miller 130.Its a great little welder.You should have no problem welding sheet metal with it.It just takes a little practice to get the hang of it.

    I just got done welding up the mounts on my 14ff with a Miller 130. It did a great job.
