  • Millermatic 211 Buying Advice - Part Number 907614

    So we are considering a newer machine and are looking at the Millarmatice 211 - my understanding is that it is the new model, part #907614

    This machine will be tasked for the following job.....

    Body / Sheet Metal Work

    Frame Repairs - attaching new shock mounts and brackets to frames and axles as needed as well as rust repair on frames.

    Not looking to do what I call " frame heavy repairs " but may need to weld on reinforcement plate as needed in some places.

    Not for a professional shop but for a home garage where the machine may be called to use on average one to three days a week, a few hours in each day.

    Plans are to run it on 240 Volt exclusively.

    Am I looking at an ample machine for the tasks, or not?

    If this is in the wrong place on there forum, I apologize as it has been a while since I have been here!!!!

    THANKS

      Thanks .... are there any concerns I should have about using an inverter machine over what I am used to using, as in machines like the MM210?

      I love the lightweight aspect.

        Nothing the matter with inverters

        I have a bunch of them

        they are a mature technology

        with a lot of advantages

          I remember when inverters were first hitting the streets and people were nervous about them.

          I figured they have been out long enough, to be OK.

          Can't way ti pick mine up tomorrow and start buying wire!

          I have an old rear end and some 1/4 metal to stick to it practicing before I get up under a project I am working on.

          Fun days are ahead 1

            If you're worried about penetration, use some flux core or dual shield. <br />

            I'm not sure if that machine will spray transfer or not. Might not be big enough.

              You just need to watch the duty cycle on that machine if doing bigger parts esp with dual shield. I run .035 dual shield on my MM185 but not everyday. But it does work nice...Bob
