That is a very good point and one that I should have made when talking about using that 110 machine to weld 1/4" and thicker, I just assumed that his primary purpose was to weld thin sheet. My point was that the 110 outfit could weld heavier stuff in a pinch with proper prep but you are exactly right a 110 volt MIG should not be considered for heavier than light sheet metal except for an occasional small job.
