A current observation. We aren't so attached to brands as most make it out to be. Everyone makes it seem like we can only buy one brand. It seems like most of us mix brands or have one of everything and like each and it depends more on process for preference. That's kind of neat to me that we don't buy only one brand.
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.

Most of the places I e worked used either Lincoln or Miller but the place I'm at now uses Esab. I've not found too many major problems with any of them. Some of the machines were old models too and worked fine.

Lincoln 180 using flux core only. --Hypertherm 30 Air --- Wen 5/8 variable speed drill press ---20 ton air operated press---2 ton cherry picker/engine hoist --Evolution 380 14in dry cut saw --Homebuilt air compressor ( 35 years ago ) and a pile of grinders -drills-air tools -wrenches -vise -clamps -anvil etc. etc. Then homebuilt stuff --layout and welding and cutting tables- set of 4 work stands adjustable from 30in to 4ft with various inserts --twin screw adjustable movable roller stock supports for cutting table and drill press --cart for welder and plasma --shop air cleaner etc, etc, No wonder my wife wonders why it took a few years to set up my shop so I like it. Other than paying for it buying the basic power tool part is fairly easy and quick --it's designing and building the support infrastructure so you can actually use the tools efficiently that takes the time. Best job I ever had!! :D :D :ugeek:

Ha! Nice pun.

I've never really been campy about what was better, mainly because I noticed that when you go somewhere to work, there really isn't a choice. You simply use what is there at that work position.

I currently have a Miller Dialarc 250 HF tig/stick welder, a Miller 211 mig, a Lincoln Weld-Pak HD flux core wire machine, and a Chicago Electric 40 amp plasma cutter...

I also have 3 oxyfuel torch rigs, 2 are Victors, the other is a Smith, I think, (I acquired it as part of a bulk lot of welding equipment almost 2 years ago and haven't even unpacked it to check it out)... :shock:
