    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.

    Question

    migman69
    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
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. james@newyorkmetalart.com

    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.
