        My whole thing was ,

        having a mildly capable MIG feature on a nice machine like mine.
        I'll probablly just buy a MM series to top off my Syncro............ Now that I am changing jobs, with almost double the pay. Oh yeah and one of those nice Miller Plasma boxes too.

          just talked to the guy over at the local Red e arc and he's telling me you won't like how a CC welder and a voltage sensing wire feeder work. I quote "it's only used on thick sections because it requires a lot of heat to make it forgiving"
          I guess the voltage sensing aspect of it makes it a bit troublesome at lower amperage settings.
          And it is typically used with flux core only, they will work with solid wire but are even more problematic at lower settings
          So I guess it's a MM252 or I could pick up on of the lease returns they have. They got five MM251's and are only looking to get $1300 each.
