    If you live close to oswego illinois i would buy it! Clear coat it as it sits, then put a mailbox in it, have a perfect house to mount it. Put the unit on a timer set for night, hook stinger to door, ground to mailbox, boom no more stolen mail!

    arc welder

    The Lincoln Idealarc 250 or the Miller Dialarc 250 would get my vote. Both are great machines

Guess id have to get a restored Sa-200 with a countertop for an island in the kitchen or man cave to match it then. I might be onto something i think..... Gotta have some blue ones to balance it out though.
    Thats a great idea. I have my dads old mid 60's Westinghouse CV supply that isn't being used. It could sit right next to my recliner with a glass top on it. Maybe shorten up the spool gun wires and make a wall hanger out of it...Bob

If your doing steel and depending on thickness can help determine where you want to be looking. If your in to learn and have the possibilities for growth and expanded options also will help you determine your ideal machine. Their are numerous options, you could go with a small mig unit for lightweight fab and repairs or you could choose a stick / Tig machine that can do more specialty work. How often do you intend to be welding? If you have done any welding before? I would try to borrow or rent a few types that best suit your needs instead of forking out a bunch of cash on a new one.
    Well put... +1

    If you are looking for a decent entry level stick machine... USMCPOP's list will be useful as well...

    We all had to start learning somewhere.... no shame in that...

    In addition... there is a lot of useful free info in the "Improve Your Skills" area of "Resources" that you might find useful..

    This thread is cracking me up. Starting to sound like comedy central.

    I would recommend a dynasty 700. You can hook up a stinger and really burn some rod.

    Also, you will only be able to buy it if you drive a Chevy. All other trucks will break the welder. You can also only use it around john Deere tractors while carrying smith and Wesson for protection. If you deviate from these rules at all the welder will break and will not be covered by warranty

    In some areas, used AC "buzzboxes" go from $50. - $150. and AC-DC versions are $150. - $250. Some of the common ones:

    Lincoln AC 180, AC225
    Miller Thunderbolt
    Hobart Stickmate
    AIRCO Bumblebee - crank type (Miller)
    Century
    Sears/Wards (many are rebadged Century)
    Marquette
    Mid-States
    Forney
    Dayton

    Next up $250. - $500 would be Lincoln Idealarc 250, Miller Dialarc 250, AIRCO (rebadged Dialarc or Miller 250).

    Not necessarily. Look at very old books printed before 1800. "Welders" were people who forge welded stuff because there were no welding machines.

    Seriously, if buying new, I would recommend the Hobart AC/DC Stickmate.
