    dan,don't matter if you aren't going to weld all day long like a fabrication shop,these mig machines really are not supposed to even be begineers welders...but if socal insists it just depends on wat color he/she wants? i used both mm210 and the esabs equiv.....and i found the esab has better features...cheaper too and i'm glad you like your mm210 but like the old saying goes opinions are always welcome

    That 60% at 120 amp duty cycle rating on the ESAB 210 doesn t look as impressive to me as the 60% at 160 amps duty cycle rating on the MM 210. Also, Im not very impressed with the fact that the ESAB only weighs 146 pounds. The MM 210 weighs in at 200 pounds. In my opinion the MM 210 is the more robust machine. The MM 210 has a very good drive roll system on it. Plus the short circuit transfer arc on it is very good.The one thing that i do like about the ESAB though is the fact that it gives you 3 more voltage taps. In the end though the MM 210 is the more impressive machine to me, so I purchased it.

    Impressive in what sense? Are they better built, less expensive, etc. My daily,weekly/monthly welding demands are not that great. Its mostly for fabricating stuff. Nothing demanding or of any significant thickness/density.

    mm210's alright but you should check out esab's impressive line

    Wooly,

    I am leaning towards an MM210 with the spoolgun and the Spectrum 375 or a Hobart equivalent. I have a good size Craftsman compressor.

    For a plasma cutter I would choose a Miller or Hypertherm.The plasma cutter that would be most valuable to the home/shop/farm would be a Spectrum 375 Cytmate that has a rated for 5/16 inch 3/8,it has a quality cut of 1/2 inch,and sever 5/8.For sheet metal work I would go with a Spectrum Thunder that has a rated cut of 1/8 and quality at 3/16 because the thickest sheet metal is 1/8....but I would suggest a pacutter with more duty cycle but it all depends on your budget.You will also need a good sized shop air compressor.I would recommend ingersoll rand or emglo in the 40-80 gallon range to provide a good supply of air!

    Thunder: $900 +tax @ www.cyberweld.com

    375: $1,185 +tax @ www.cyberweld.com

    Thunder can be used on 115 house voltage and also 230 volt to even sever 1/4 inch


    375 is used on 230 voltage
