In the near future I'm planning to expand my welding equipment to include a stick welder and after some reading have decided that an ac/dc welder would be the best choice. First, am I right? There is an ac Lincoln 225 at Lowes for under 300 dollars, but would I be sorry afterwards because I didn't have dc?
So if the ac/dc is the best route, what's the best welder?
I did some searches using ac vs dc but didn't come up with anything; I'm sure this has been discussed a million times here but I couldn't (or didn't know how) to find it.
Any help appreciated.
