    hi all,

    in the near future i plan to buy a new welder, it dosnt have to be brand new but that is what i am looking at right now. Unless something comes up before i buy one.
    anyone that knows about welders, could you go to this page and tell me if the one to the left is any good or not?

    oops, i just glanced at the addy i posted here and i see there is more than one welder to the left, doh!

    i mean the blue one closer to the bottom
    CLARKE MIG 130E
    $549 CDN

    The Clark's aren't bad...but I've seen the Lincoln machines at Home depot for about the same money. IMHO the Lincoln is a better machine. I have just had great luck with Lincoln's...I love the way they run.

    Either machine will do a fine job on body repair etc etc.

    Just my .02...go with one of the big 3, miller, lincoln, or hobart. Of course if you've got the cash, get an ESAB like we have at work...sweet wire machines!
