And I agree that bigger is better, but I don't intend on using MIG for anything more than body panels that are hard to access as I like TIG (of course I have never used MIG). If this was going to be my primary welder, I would have just bought a Miller/Lincoln and been done with it

I have both a Mig and a Tig, and as sorry as I am to say it, I like Mig better 90% of the time-if I'm metal finishing a panel, then I use Tig . For along time I was a Welding snob, and it was Tig or nothing. I love the looks of the Tig, the ultimate control, penetration and such, but I am just too impatient-when I sit down to do something I want to get it done. I am sorry that I didn't buy a 250 Amp + Mig (mine is a Lincoln 175), but I will buy at least a 200 Amp next time-
