Which model? I want it to be 220V, none of that 110 crap. Needs to weld 1/4 and/or 3/8" in one pass.

me too, i've got a cheapy home depot lincoln right now, I can make some nice welds with it, but i'm sick of brushing the flux off of every weld I make. When I could just make a nice clean weld and leave it for the world to see.

I have a Millermatic 250. Does a good job for me.

there millermatic 175 is perfect for home and will do anything you need and more. it is a smaller machine but size doesn't matter and it is 220v.

i'd run .030 wire in it but if you are welding alot of 3/8" i'd go up to .035 wire.

you can get it for around 700 without the cart.

another option

hobart is made by miller and you'll get the same excellent customer service if you ever need it. they are almost identical with the exception of a few plastic parts vs. metal. i haven't heard anything bad about the hobart stuff. it really just depends on how your budget looks. if they made a hobart tig similar to the syncrowave i would definately consider it.

hope this helps.

I think that would do for my use at home. Is this the same place that you bought your miller?

no, but i have bought stuff from them. i bought mine from the place on ebay but the price difference wasn't much. i want to say like maybe 20 bucks or something. i think i got my shipping for free but see what cyberweld has to offer. i am going to order another plasma cutter from them next week.

I have a millermatic 210 and couldnt be happier. I've welded up to 3/8 with it in one pass and the welds came out perfect. I would not hesitate to do 1/2 or maybe a little heavier.
