    dude, if you have any plans at all for your ride, buy a welder. shock mounts are the easiest thing to learn on

    110s are really borderline. My dad has 2 110 units, they aren't good enough for me. I am getting my own 220 unit, but I also get into welding a lot more heavy steel. a 110 unit can do well enough if you crank the heat all the way up and practice before you weld.

    If worst comes to worst, you can bring it down here and I'll weld it up for you (Baltimore, MD area), but look to spend atleast $500 for a "cheap" welder. Any less and you'll be wishing you had a bigger welder in a couple years... (but you'll probably think the same with a welder in that price range anyway??)
    I wouldn't go any lower than the Miller 175.
    But I agree, Hobarts are ok too, just lower in quality than Millers or Lincolns, but the prices are much more attractive.

    i have a lincoln 110 amp. whatever we cant do with that we do with the stick welder... but there is a fine line right under 3/16 thats too big for the 110 and too small for the stick
