Miller, hypertherm and Airco at school and Lincoln on the farm. I've realized somethings in these endeavors though. I like Lincolnshire lower end tigs but not their larger machines and vice versa with Miller. I like millers small mig machines but not their large machines and vice versa with Lincoln.

A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything. Want to become a knower of all and master of none.

All Lincoln. Eat that! Haha!
Just kidding. I've only got two machines and one of them is a Lincoln 225 tombstone that everyone probably has one of. The other is a 210 MP. Love it!
