My Pro Mig 175 was stolen. I wont get enough insurance money to get a new one, so I'm looking at getting a less expensive 120v MIG, so that I can still have a welder.

Honestly, after having one, I dont think I could go without. I was looking @ the Clarke 130EN Package on Weldingdepot and it comes with the 130EN, an autodark helmet, cart, and 20cf cylinder, for under $500.

How does that welder do? It more than likely will never be used for framework, but merely for sheetmetal work and practice stuff.

Its a very good machine, just don''t use an extension cord with it. John

Cool. Thanks guys! Insurance is cutting me a check for $500 very soon, so I may pick this up, or get an alarm on the truck. Not sure which one.

I have one and it is excellent. They have the best warranty in the market segment. You CAN use an extension cord with one but it must be at the very minimum a 12/3 cord to work. It will absolutely NOT work with a 14/3 cord or lower.

Text book definition:
"The purpose for segmenting a market is to allow your marketing/sales program to focus on the subset of prospects that are "most likely" to purchase your offering. If done properly this will help to insure the highest return for your marketing/sales expenditures. "

In this case, the market segment is 110v hobby type welders.

I didn't major in marketing but I hope this helps clear up any confusion. :)
