    What makes you so sure? It's a MAIL in rebate. They just happen to sell the machine below MSRP.

And just a few months later here I am about to spring for the tig kit. The Lincoln gives you room to grow, and unless you go into welding professionally it will handle anything you'll ever want to do, except AC tig.

    Yea true but all the features (including lcd screen) seem like 1 more thing to break. How do u like the lincoln 210 mp. Have you ever had wire feeding issues i hear some people do with the lincoln.

    As far as I am concerned the wire drive issue is a non-issue generated by people who spend more time trying to critique their machine than they do welding. One person on here found the "wire drive issue" on a 210MP and then subsequently found that a Miller 211 was doing the same thing. My 210MP drives wire fine and any wobble if it exists has little or no effect on what I'm doing. I suspect that most people who have found the "wire drive issue", found it because they saw a video not because their machine was being peculiar.

    I never liked the older MM211. Folks do like them but maybe I was spoiled or just used to using the Passport Plus before getting a MM211. The Passport was one of the first inverters in a small package offered
    by Miller.

    We went with red just to try it out their vision of an inverter based machine. I'm a big fan of them.

    I like the way it welds. I've done more stick than anything with it but I have been playing with Mig, Tig and Flux core. I've had no problem with the way it feeds wire.
    I will give you one heads up though. I was told by the store where I bought mine that the local Lincoln repair depot had seen a couple of them in with the main knob broken off. That kind of damage is not covered by warranty and the repair is almost $1000(I'm in Canada) because the knob is mounted directly on the main circuit board. The repair depot doesn't do component level repair on this and the circuit board is listed at $946 when I looked. I'm not concerned about the screen, it has a replaceable clear cover and the new Miller Multimatic also has a similar screen. I don't think the MM 211 does.
    Would I recommend it? Yes, if it fits what you need to do. Understand it is not a football. Don't drop it off your truck or throw things at it. Personally I believe this applies to any tool you pay that kind of money for.
    I built a cart for mine to specifically reduce the chance of accidental damage to mostly the front of the machine but still leave it accessible. Maybe I'll get around to posting a few pics in the cart thread. I think it has a few useful ideas.
    Ed(Broccoli 1) has likely done more wire fed work than me so I'd give his recommendation more weight than mine if that will be your main use.
