I am looking at the 211 to do some light aluminum work, stainless and mostly mild steel.

Question; is it worth the extra money to get the 212 (same specs except for increased duty cycle).

Was looking at 252 but spool option is big increase in $$.

Main uses are home fabrication for myself with small compact tractor implement work.

I currently own a Lincoln sp170-T and a Canox sparkler AC/DC 225/150

Was going to keep the stick but if 1 welder can replace the 2 I have I am open to that.

Any and all positive opinions are welcome!
