After some research on this sight and taking lawngodfather and arc burns advise, I decided to buy the Lincoln weld pack 100. Sears had it on sale for $315(regular price $350). I took the add to Home Depot and asked if they would match price(there reg price is $325). They not only matched it but knocked off 10% of the SELLING price. Walked out the door paying $283 + tax. Also got a 10 lbs of flux core wire and adaptor as a bonus from Lincoln included in the box. Cant beat that deal anywhere on this welder. Anybody have any advice on this welder. Im going to start using it pretty soon.
