    I will give two of the plates to a man with a Harbor Freight welder who has 30 years experience in welding.
    I will give the other two plates to a guy with very little experience but he gets a Miller 215.

    Once they are both done welding you have to choose which plate will hold you over the lava.

    Which plate will you choose?

    Whats more important in welding, the man or the machine?
    And for the math guys, what percentage would you say is man / machine?
    NEITHER ONE......

    I would not be comfortable in either case

    IMHO Man = 60% Machine = 40% But really depends on the man and machine... highly subjective
