    There will probably be more thin steel than really heavy, not sure what the aluminum will be. The performance curves on the 350P look more stable/controlled than the 252....

    My scope might notice a subtle difference, but as a operator, not a chance. Really if you have extra coin burning a hole in your pants. buy what ever you want. However in this case buy new, or its going to cost you more than what you bargained for

    Yea, the new MM252 might be the best way to go... I can use the saved money to upgrade to a water cooled TIG setup...

    Make sure to post some pictures in this thread when you get it. Sure you won't be disappointed with the 252

    The more time I have the more options I try to rationalize... at present, I have directed my thoughts towards a used XMT 304 or 350 CC/CV and a new or used 24A wire-feeder with the Bernard Q-gun. This would cost close to the new 252 but yield many more options for expansion. The used Invision 352MPa/S-74MPa Plus is also under consideration if the price is right.

    When I upgrade my mig machine for work I have my eye on an xmt 304 with an rc-12 feeder. Powerful, lightweight, light on input power, and can stick and dc tig.

    I replaced my 252 MM with a XMT 350 and a s74dx feeder. Its a hoss. When you pull the trigger it means business. After using this and then using a 252 and my friends 256 Lincoln those feel like toys. My opinion is for a home you couldn't go wrong with a 252 tho.
