I'm locked into a indecision corner...You guys have seen my Junk Art, much of which relies on my MIG welding of thin sheet meta' the rest pretty conventional MIG stuff.
I'm just about deadlocked in placing my order today for either:
The ESAB Caddy 200 (what's with the C160 u, anyways?) (sounds all-around GREAT!)
The Thermal ARC 181 i ( I'm not that interested in doing MIG right now, but it is Spool Gun Capable with a $280.00 gun)
(I keep having visions of building an all-aluminum, ultra light teardrop camper)
The Handler 190 w/Spool Gun
The Handler 210 MVP (the portability appeals to me. I did go down to the store and pick one up, and move around with it a bit...I think my Right Arm is now 1 1/2 Inches longer than my left, but its not too bad!
I sold my H180 (trusty, welded good enough for me!, just to get into a MVP, so I could dispose of my 125 EZ (a GEM!), and just have the one machine.
I would have to keep the EZ if I went with the TA or ESAB (no 110, and I do a fair amount of that for a client of mine).
