  • Hello NEW to the forum

    Hello all i wanted to introduce myself to the group. Im 30 years old and just gout out of the Marine Corps. I did 11 years and decided it was enough. I start school in a few days for welding. I bout a millermatic 180 that i taught myself to mig weld with and i love that machine. and i just bought the other day a syncrowave 200 and teaching myself how to tig/stick weld. I am the type that lieks to learn things on my own but school is going to help a lot as well not to mention allow me to get paid more when i finish school. I do ask a lot of questions to be prepaired to see a lot of my posts .lol

    Is that a Millermatic 175? I had one for several years and loved it. Finally replaced it (sold it to a friend who still has it) with a Passport.

        That's an older one, significantly more powerful, too. I hear lots of good things about it. I think even spray transfer is possible for you with that.
