The only thing I do not like about the Hobart, Is the fact that the power settings are pre-set.
Here's a tip that might help...a lot of these welding supply places have demo welders...see if you can't take one for a spin and see what it does and how it works for you...try a few different ones, you don't by a car without test driving it...right?

I don't know if it is a common thing or not, but one of the welding suppliers in the area here will sell the demo units with full warranty at deep discounts. A friend of mine bought a 180 amp Lincoln a few weeks ago for $550. Looks brand new, with warranty, just had been demo'd at the supplier's. I think he said it had about 20 hours or so on it. I'd buy a welder with 20 hours for half price.....

That's great advice Kelly, especially since he isn't in as big a hurry today as he may have been a few weeks ago. So, this might be a plan for you...go test driving welders...and don't be afraid to ask when the demo welders are coming up for sale....who knows, you might come home with a full size Cadillac and paid for an Economy Chevy.
