    Welding machine brand

    I’m a newly certified welder in MIG. I’m looking for some advice on the best welding brand. Which brand of welding machine should I invest in? Also, where are the best place to buy welding machines? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Oh man, askjeeves....probably powered by google. I wouldn't be surprised if all of them are.

    Now you're just being silly, of course it doesn't have to be true, but you gotta admit it has a lot more credibility.

    If you really want to be contrary, try a Yahoo search instead

    Anybody know where I can get a grant to do a study of the inside of my eyelids? I'll need a new recliner, and a nice pillow and a blankie might be nice. I don't have a thermostat with remote and once I get all reclined I might not be inclined to jump up and change the thermostat. Of course changing the thermostat won't do diddle since I disconnected it and replaced it with a switch to make the little woman happy.

    I can double down and do a study of women and thermostats in a single recline.

    I'm highly qualified cause I say I am.

    No...attaching a study doesn't make it true, but it beats the heck out of a guess or an assumption in my books? Add in that occupation injuries rise in extreme cold or excessive heat, and trade unions support efforts to improve conditions... A class room should be a place where learning is enhanced not distracted from with sweating kids or chattering teeth.

    Of course it does, especially if a study says so. Anything that has a study done on it must be true.

    Or it could be the school system had put together a program with old used donated equipment, with a low budget, in a broke community in the hopes it translated to an opportunity for a student? Weld quality doesn't always improve with expensive.

    Studies show air temperature has an effect on the learning environment.

    Cut backs you see, the school probably had to buy some sort of classroom air temperature monitoring device as demanded by the teachers union.

    I'm kind of curious about being a certified welder in MIG? Which certification did you receive? What kind of test?
    This notion may sound kind of crazy but why buy a machine? I mention that because doesn't certification mean a job that provides a welder? Anyways, your not buying to invest. Spend money on, I'll go there. As Franz mentioned, depends on what your going to do with it? Get lots of practice at work you may not want to do it at home? Other wise it's not earning interest, saving a buck or making one. Just sits there.

    Always seemed to me you pick the machine based on what you intend to weld with it.

    May I recommend Millermatic 252 or 255 or the Multimatic 255 these are good machines.

    I have a 252 and a XMT 350 MPa in my shop. The 252 is the go to machine for my guys, I'm the only one that uses the XMT. Maybe it's the set up time they don't like.
    Good Luck,
    Bob
