Re: tell me which to buy
search "welder" on ebay, and look around. if you have 220v power get a 175 machine = best bang for the buck. 110v only, get a lincoln 135, or miller 135. i also HIGHLY recomend a good auto darkening helmet. they cost more, but are WELL worth it. i have a Miller big window elite, but a xlix is almost as nice. and you will need a bottle of gas, 80cf of C25, 75%argon/25%oxygen. this will be about $150usa. don't forget you are going to need cutting & grinding tools.
flux-core is good for its intended usage, but is messy.
the lincoln 3200hd is a fine welder.
welding is cool & fun. but it can get expensive. but paying someone to weld for you is even more expensive.
