    I might buy a lincoln 135... but it will come w/o a gun, a grounding clamp and the gas regulator. Would it be woth buying all new accessories if i got the welder for 245 bux shipped to me?

    Where can i get this stuff.

    heck yea thats anawesome deal I payed 436 for mine, you can get a good regualtor for about 50 and the gun costs about the same, and the clamp you can get at home depot or lowes and it is not that much either, so you will save money and get a better regualtor. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    when you get the tanks, don't buy them, lease them. Then when you need it refilled you just exchange it with a full tank. if you were to buy a tank, you would have to wait for them to fill it up. and depending on how busy they are, that could take a while...

    When I bought my welder online, I also bought a brand new tank, I took that tank to Airgas and they swapped it for a full one. No sweat. Maybe 'cause it was a brand new tank?
