I would prefer selling my MM 135 and paying the difference for a MM 210 but a pending divorce and becoming the primary care provider for two pre-teen daughters has me looking at alternatives.
I have read here and elsewhere that if I learn to stick weld correctly, I can do most anything. I want to be able to weld 3/16"-3/8" single pass in structural applications ie, trailers, stairs, handrails and similar projects. With the HR 20% discount, the Hobart is very affordable, even with my current situation.
What would you do?
I might add that even though I am very happy with the MM 135, a Hobart Handler 180 may be an option too. I do think that a stick welder would teach me more.
