  • Millermatic 211 Good or Not Good

    Hi Fellow Welders: Have been studying and reading info on a Millermatic 211 MIG Welder Auto. I want this welder strickly for welding Aluminum. Majority of my welding projects are 1/4 to 1/8 inch aluminum. Do any of you guys out there own such a welder? Do you have a friend that has this welder? If you are an owner are you happy with it? I will be using this mostly as hobby welding. At least this welder is within my price range.Any feedback will be appricated. Thanks

    What kind of welds???

    The MM210 would be fine for your needs, however if you are doing a lot of aluminum with small 1-2 inch beads, ie manifolds, I doubt you will be happy with the performance of a spoolgun. Biggest probelm with a spoolgun is it does not have good heat and penentration at the start of the weld. With small stich welds you would be much bettar off with a pulse on pulse machine like the 350p or bettar the lincoln 350. Or do the tig route. I just bought a Lincoln 185 tig because of this reason. I have been doing a lot of 1/8 aluminum jobs, where the spoolgun just did give the performance I liked. Just an FYI my spoolgun is a 30a hooked to a maxtron 450.
