    Where's the best place to buy a 110V Lincoln Mig welder? I'm tired of using my friend's tools and I got lot's more patch panels to weld in. I'm trying to find the best price I can before I drop some cash.

    I bought my welder on ebay. A bunch of suppliers have "new-in-the-box" welders of almost every style. And they go much cheaper than most retail stores (including Harbor Freight and Northern Tool). I got a new Hobart 175 Mig for under $500.
    Good luck. JT

    How do you like your hobart? I stopped by the welding supply store today and the salesman was pretty high on Hobarts. Does it have four power settings or are the settings infinitely adjustable?

    I bought a Hobart 135 (110volt model). I like it. Very simple design-works well. The temp setting is only 4 position which may be a little limiting for sheet metal, but I have done some body work with it on 1 and it works great. I got mine at Harbor Freight on sale for $375 I think.
