    I just got a new toy yesterday. It's a Millermatic 135 welder. I would post up some pics, but I don't have a camera. I bought it for doing my patch panels. I got it set up with .024" wire and gold gas. I figured I couldn't go wrong with a miller.

    I got it at a welding suppy shop around here. It's called Rockford Industrial Welding Supply. The welder itself was $525 and it included like 4 different tips, the gun and a 2 lb. spool of .024" wire. The bottle was about $120. Go for it. I love it. I'm so glad I went with the Miller. The Millers are only $25 more than the Hobarts, but to me it was definately worth it.
