    Welder looking for guidance.

    Hey guys,

    WE need more info and your budget. There are a lot of choices out there now days. What processes do want it to be capable of? What type of work do you want it to be capable of ? Does it need to be portable , does it need to be able to run off a generator ?

    If you want a stick welder, we have a bunch of the MILLER CST 280's. Great machines and run daily for pipe welding. Have plenty of duty cycle.

    We use them for tig too doing stainless.

    Welcome!

    You can't go wrong with Lincoln and Miller. Esab would be my 3rd choice as dealer support is not as common as Lincoln and Miller.
    Weld like a "WELDOR", not a wel-"DERR"
