It looks like it would cost $180.00 for the K586-1 kit plus $200.00 for a bottle. That's why it would be cheaper to make the miller work better for auto body panels. Thanks for very bodies input. No I'm not crying about being on a budget. Just frugal!
if it will turn down to 30 amps, I think you could use it.
mine goes from 210 amps - 30 amps, and I dont weld on the very lowest settings, for sheetmetal.
