    Not all brands of breaker boxes can accomodate 1/2 breakers. Depending on the brand this could be a viable solution. Again, you do not have a 30 amp 240 volt dryer circuit? No additional circuits needed just switch the cord cap and viola.

    I have a question also, why are you limited to exclusively 110V? Any 110 service can be doubled to 220V.. Is the panel completely filled? The last issue on the electrical side, my service panel was in my opinion maxed out. The "Licensed Electrican" arrives and low and behold has these nice little breakers that double up each breaker to create two circuits. He put in 4, Walla 4 open spots to create 2 - 220 circuits Compressor & Lathe, problem solved. Just food for thought..

    Arcburn,

    Let's get a few questions answered. What is the use of your welded material. How imperative is it to be structurally sound? Do you have any option for 220 VAC power like a dryer outlet? Will you have an option for 220 VAC in the future?

    Here is some food for thought: Millermania is correct that it will take a 220 vac machine to get good solid structural welds on 1/4 material in a single pass. My first thought is a Miller MM210 for a 220 VAC machine.

    Being limited to 120 VAC you have the MM 135, the MM DVI, and the MM PASSPORT. Take a look at them on the Miller Website to get familiar with their features and the list prices. Most dealers will discount 10-20% off of list. Some will discount a little more and some a little less. It really depends on the area.

    Millermatic DVI

    Miller PASSPORT

    I don't think there's any MIG that runs on 110V that can weld 1/4". The Millermatic DVI will run on 110V and 220V, and can do up to 3/8", but I'm pretty sure you have to be running it on 220V to get it to do 1/4". You'll probably have to settle for multi-passes to do 1/4".

    I need some help to decide what MIG welder to buy. First of all I am limited to 115 V power because I will be welding at home, Second I will be welding 1/8 to 1/4 mild steel. I will be primarily useing .030 wire with 25/75 gas.
Working...
