    As for the 212, i've yet to be around one. However, we do have a 210 here at the school and I have used it to weld 3/8" before without any problems. I wouldn't want to go much higher but it handled the 3/8" ok. I prefer the 251/252 series machines for their added capacity and digital readout.

      the MM210 is an excellent welder well spoken for. the MM212 is the new version with a few changes, mostly cosmetic but the arc is just as nice and it should in time show to be just as nice as the MM210. its an excellent choice.
      thanks for the help
      hope i helped
      feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat.
      summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

        I own the 210 and love it; doesn't make me dinner so it will never replace the wife but it was money well spent!-)

            A search on MM210/212 will give you as much info as you want to read.

            MM210/212 is a well respected line. As the basic specs say, it's rated to weld 3/8" steel in a single pass.

              I have both and they both weld great. As far as welding 3/8, No problem.
              Good luck,

                I'm very happy with my Millermatic 210. It's all the GMAW machine I'll ever need, and the way it runs, I'd say it'll be around for my grandsons.
