    I own an older ESAB Tig and trying to decide between the Miller and Lincoln TIGs................already have two Miller welders (CST 280 --- stick and DC Tig) and the MillerMatic 211 --- both OUTSTANDING. Also have an older Lincoln PRO 175 MIG --- also outstanding...............so it comes down to warranties.

    Lincoln's Warranty now beats Miller's

    I'm considering a new TIG and when you look at the whole machine, Miller's warranty is very selective (in bold below) , only covering certain items. Lincoln's, on the other hand, appears to cover the entire machine for 3 years (in bold below).
