I know new welders have affected my credit card,a new mig,a new tig & a 3in1. But I pay it off when due. Them & banks don't make a nickel off me. So what do I drag home tonight? A Lincoln Ideal-Arc 300 amp AC, 250amp DC with the round top, round wheel with a knob to infinatly adjust the amps built into a 4 wheel welding cart on wheels & a steel top to weld on,& hooks for the cables. This one didn't affect the card $200/Cash with extra long leads,an extra cord & 4 8" HD BB castors for another project. This thing weighs a ton but it does have the power. Sorry for getting off topic.
