I am looking at geting a Hobart stickmate ac/dc. Airgas has it for $459 and northern has it for $419. Airgas also has a Miller thunderbolt ac/dc with the same specs for $479. My question is...Is there any difference in quality between Northern tool welders and Airgas welders? And, is there any difference in the Stickmate vs. the Thunderbolt. I got my Handler 140 from airgas and it was cheaper than Nothern at $445. Im just wondering if its worth saving a couple bucks by going with northern.
