I recently bought a 1966 Mustang project car and I need to replace the rear subframe, floor panels and body panels. Which welder should I buy that will work for all three projects. I do not want to spend a fortune. Thanks for the help.
I bought a Century 110 volt model. It has a two way switch for light jobs and heavier jobs. It also has infinite settings for wire speed and heat range ( not the detented ones on some). I also use the gas with it with .023 wire. Years ago I paid around $750 bucks for the whole kaboodle. It will weld up to 1/4 inch plate.
The 110V makes it adaptable for any location. The two way switch allows extra power when welding thicker steel ( this unit can blow a hole through anything on a early Mustang). The infinite settings allow you to set it so you can weld the thinnest or thickest of metal and/or transistion to any thickness inbetween. The gas allows a better weld both structurally and cosmetically. I only run it off a outlet box or a heavy cord I run for 220V using only one leg.
This is based on my personal experience. I'm sure others will have different "tastes".
