When you say you wish you could turn your wire feed into a MIG. A wire feed machine IS a mig or more correctly a short-arc. A Mig is a mig whether you use a gas shield or a flux core wire!

I'm sorry but if you keep complaining about not wanting the tools to do the job right, I'm going to have a hard time sympathizing with you. I guess I just woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.
