i have been welding with a stick arc welder for a few years now, but i tried a MIG the other day and I am in love. it's just so easy to do a good job. does anyone else have one of these? how much does it cost to get a decent one with the tank and everything? is it easy enough to replace the wire? how much does it cost to get the tank filled? thanks :)

Im a MIG welder by profession..

Wire is super easy to change out, same with the gas
you can buy a full set for anywhere from 300 - 2000$ depending on what you need it for. I dont think they come with gas cylinders.. they can cost anywhere from 30 - 300$

I have my gas filled at praxair (locally)

Look Heer
look on the left side an put in your max price

I have a millermatic 210 with 3 foot tank that seems to last a long time. I love this machine more than my children.
Just kidding, i dont have children. If I did I would still love the machine more.

I have a 100 amp gasless wire welder that takes flux core wire. It works quite well for being a cheap welder from harbor freight. I have had it for 9 years (it was a christmas present when i was 11) and have used the hell out of it with no issues. the flux core wire burns through paint and rust with ease. I can weld 3/16 plate steel with ease with it. thats darn good for being a 120 volt welder. It welds a bit different that a gas welder. the arc seems hotter and more intense with more splatter.
