    I have never used a MM211 but have heard that they are well liked. The other thing is if you are not happy with it they hold their value well & you will get back most of your money in resale.

    You are just a BIG little kid, like so many of the rest of us on here. Now you need to start saving your pocket change to buy the other toys to make this one more fun to play with. Grinders, O/A torch, clamps, saws, tape measures, welding table, angle finders, tubing benders, spoolgun, squares, and the list goes on. You will also need a camera so you can post up pictures to show us what you are doing with the new toys.

    Don't forget a bottle of gas and consumables (contact tips, wire). That can add up to at your initial purchase.

    What size tank would you start off with. For welding it seems like you need a steel compared to aluminum?

    How about what grinder, chop saw, mask or welding helmet? I have a total of $3450.00 To invest. Maybe just a hair more.

    Or anything else I need to get started?

    125 cylinder is all I want to lift anymore. As another poster said, if you start using a lot, get a spare. I like the better DeWalt grinder and Makita chop saw.

    You say you want to build a welding table, welding cart, and a stand for the bench grinder, then maybe a helmit and other stuff. I would reccomend a helmit first, before the other stuff. Trying to weld without one will render you with no need for one as you will be blind before getting it. This can seriously affect your ability to learn how to make good weld beads. With out the welding Hood the welding machine is not much use to you, unless your eyes are immune to U/V light, in which case you can forget about buying the Hood in the first place.
