Hello guys & gals, I had a quick question. Iím a company pipeline welder & have a Lincoln 300 on my rig, at home in the shop I have a Sync 350 for mostly any aluminum tig projects with no complaints. Iíve found myself doing more & more aluminum projects, so Iíve decided to purchase a mig. Even though the Millermatic 212 will be plenty, Iíve talked myself into purchasing the 252. Before I pull the trigger on this purchase, do you guys think I should consider any other machine? Any & all comments or suggestions would greatly be appreciated! Thank you in advance!
No announcement yet.
