    Been using this Miller Mig for a couple of years now. You can find them for $1000.

    Wood, I went from a 15 year old Snap-on YA205A (made by Century) to this one. Happy so far. Its made by Miller.

    I would recommend getting at least a 250 Amp welder, so you can put down some beads with excellent penetration, and no splatter.

    I've had a Hobart Handler from Northern Tool for about 3 years and it's worked flawlessly.
