What exactly are you gong to do ? That will really decide what you need. I have a stick welder, a small 110 mig welder, a 210 mig welder and brazing tips for my torches, Each one will do seperate jobs, but the 220 mig will do just about anything. Its also all about practice.
"I love my country, I love my guns, I love my family, I love the way it is now. And anybody that tries to change it, has to come through me. That should be all of our attitudes.
Cause this is America and a country boy is good enough for me, son."
