    I guess I was more interested in what amperages I would need, more than what machine is better. I plan on getting a used one (for now), just got my mm211 6 months ago, so I have to save up again.
    Anyway I will need to weld 1/2" thick flange on a king pin slug through a hole 1/2" plate. So from what I'm seeing is id need 250 amps or so. Also is dc the way to go?
    250 amps is a good number... there should be somethig on the used market..

    If you have the input power to run it, buy that Dialarc 250. It's been posted for a month so maybe the price is negotiable.
