OH yeah another thing... Watch for rebates. Between Miller and Lincomnthey ae always doing some kind of rebate. If you want to wait and nit jump the gun see of one has a rebate coming up. Do some online shopping between competitors in the same machine and look for their own deals. Welders supply has the multimatic for like $6 less then welding supplies from ioc, but the ioc website has a $15 discount for one time use if you sign up for their email notifications. Little stuff like that may lead you one way or another since they are both capable and quality machines.
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything.
warning!! Bad English may be in post. It's off a phone/autocorrect. I've had teachers with worse spelling!
