Re: [Bfix] Welder recomendations

I guess that I will go trade my Lincoln in on a miller since Ive been
educated. I wish I would have known all this before I bought it. Not that
the different reps at the welding places I went knew anything by
recommending it, or that more than a couple professional welders said would
not own anything but a Lincoln. And not that the lincoln sure feels like a
better welder, since Ive used both, including the Miller 185 and 210... I
wonder why it costs a bit more since its such an inferior machine. Kinda
makes ya wonder though....
