I don't have a 220amp plug so is there a good machine that I can get to do some basic welding? Mild steel nothing thicker than 1/4". I'm looking to keep costs down, any ideas?
The Hobart Handler 140 will weld up to 1/4" steel. With proper preparation of the workpiece, including multi-pass, it could go over 1/4", as long you get molecular fusion. I don't see a comparable machine from Miller.
