  • WooHoo! I got a new toy today!

    I ordered a MillerMatic 211 last week and it finally came in today, WOOHOO! I haven't had time to play with it yet though. But, I have got it setup. My dad gave me a 30' piece of 10ga wire and I bought male and female plugs for both ends to make a nice long, 230V extension chord. I got a tank, a new set of gloves, a 12lb spool of wire and a free welders cap with it, too. I need to get a cart made for it, I'm really liking the shopping cart ideas that I have seen in the projects forum. Now, I just need to snag me a cart. I've also got a welding table I'm working on too.

    Now I have an excuse to get more projects finished. (Welding cart and table, plasma cutter cart, 55gal drum bbq grill, custom mount to put tow hooks on the front of my truck, redo the front door gate on my house, build window bars and whatever else comes along).

    I'm a long-time Tig guy (LOVE my Maxstar 200dx), but I have been wishing to be able to buy a 211. Maybe with my new job this year'll be the year.

          Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, and proudly proclaiming, "Wow, what a ride!" 2B1ASK1

            Thanks for the complements guys, I used it yesterday, to build a custom tow hook mount for my truck. I love my 211, its great. I grew up with a harbor freight 110v fmaw, but its no comparison to the 211.

            Greenshovel, you will love the 211. That 875 will be great too. I have a Spectrum 2050, the predecessor to the 875, its a monster compared to the size of the 875. Nice grill, BTW!
