Re: [Bfix] Welder recomendations

No flames here! Everyone is entitled to there own personal preference, but
I do not believe you can weld a few times with a machine and get an accurate
assumption of the performance. If you know your machine you can lay a nice
bead, but it takes some practice with each machine. I guarantee I can lay a
MUCH cleaner weld with a Miller 185 than I can with a Lincoln 200, but its
because I am very familiar with the Miller, not because its a better
machine. I have not owned a Lincoln 200, but have owned a Lincoln 110. I
have also owned several Miller products as well. I think both are great
machines, but prefer Miller. Kinda like a "Ford VS Chevy" thing. The
Miller does not have a NASCAR sticker, but it is FORD blue! That should
carry allot of weight on this list! :)
