I also bought a MM211AS and I love it. I used it on welding 1/8 steel on 110v and very smooth and easy. Now I welded the same thickness on 220v and I had to move fast. I think it had deeper penatration on 220v. Maybe I should have dropped the heat a little,but it did a great job. Have to say I think what I like most about this machine is the smoothness of it, and the flexability of having 110 or 220 volts.

new Millermatic 211
Thanks Arnold, I have been racking my brain trying to decide between the Miller 211 and 212. Tell me, have you had any trouble with the spoolmatic 100? I have heard some talk about trouble sometimes with this gun.

I bought a new spoolmate 100 when I bought the unit, but I haven't used it yet. I only bought it because it was recomended because aluminum gets caught in the torch. It does not want to slide through the torch as easy as steel does. And I will not be using the spoolmate untill I get to AZ. I have alot of aluminum welding to do on my carport. I won't get there till Oct 2009. If you use yours let me know how you like it. I have not found anyone who has used a spoolmate 100 with a M211 yet. All the feedback that I have read about on the M211 have been positive. I haven't done any MIG welding since 1980. But I tll you I love this machine. Once you get back in the groove of things its great.Lincoln Idealarc 250

The on/off switch is on the back, upper right side facing the machine.
I have found the chart inside the door is pretty much "spot on" for the .023 wire. I just got used to using the AutoSet feature on my 140AS, so it is kind of aggravating to open the side and look up each setting. Maybe I will memorize them by the time I use up all of my .023 and switch to .030.Burt

Bought the 211 and absolutly love it.....works great on 110v and 220v. Auto set gives great results and the inside cover chart is accurate too. I got the spool gun also but haven't had a chance to try it out.
