          If you had a Dynasty 200DX you would cover both tig and stick. If you got yourself a HH210 or a Passport Plus then you would be covered in the shop or a friends house
          If you chose to go bigger, any of those welders would sell on e-bay in record time.

                    i was thinking for mig the millermatic 350 or 350p. and tig probably the dynasty but i love to have a syncrowave.

                    am i missing some thing ??
                    does anyone have an opinion on what a good welder for home use would be . ill be looking at mig and tig welders, and maybe a cheap stick welder also

                    just doesn't add up ?? the 350 or 350P is very big for home use. and why would you prefer a syncro over the Dyn ??tig probably the dynasty but i love to have a syncrowave.
                    do you have the power to run a syncrowave ?? i think a Dyn200DX and a MM212 or 252 would be plenty for almost any home shop. the MM212 being first choice as the 252 is probably over kill here also. then maybe add a spec.375 if you want some cutting fun. now thats a great home shop, all for about the same $$ as a MM350P.

                    what are you planing to do at home ??? i have a MM135, in the last 7 or 8 years its coverd all my home needs except aluminum, got a TIG for that. the only reason i think going to a MM210 is needed is i want to start taking in some outside work if i can now that i finally have TIG as an option.
                    thanks for the help

                      i agree with you the mm350p is a bit overkill but it is also definatly the only thing id ever need at home lol. I know alot of people with trailers and other stuff made out of kinda thick metal, i guess i just want to be able to handle whatever my friends throw at me, not to mention i want to do some side jobs at home, But if i can go with the mm212 or 252 and save some money i may just do that if it will handle the jobs i want it to do. And im not even sure what power the syncro requires to run, but i do have 220 power avalible.

                      • as for the power i figured you had 240V power, its the Amp's that kill ya. i had to go inverter as 30Amp breaker was the best i could hope for and that was pushing it. no syncro 200 for me.but my TA-185 is doing great on what i have to offer,so i'm happy.

                        you should take a look at what size breakers/panel you have to work with when shopping for welder. don't want to spend your hole budget on welders only to find out its going to be another $2,000.oo to get the needed power to feed them. that could be a real bummer.
                        if i had just jumped on the syncro when i had the $$ i would have a brand new 300# paper wait, nice looking one but still...

                        i think a 252 is going to handle about any trailer your friends can throw at ya if they have heavy equipment. if they just have bike trailers and utility stuff the 212 will cover it. if not you can always throw a stick in the TIG/Stick welder. 8^))
