best mig welder under $ 300 ?
I was looking to find a decent mig welder for under $ 300.
I need something that can weld bicycle frames for custom projects such as tall bikes and cargo bikes.
Last weekend I borrowed a mig welder from a friend of a friend, and it plugged into a regular outlet in my shed, another friend of mine did the welding on the frame and it seemed to penetrate the seat post and bottom bracket with ease. There was no gas used, and I don't know if the wire was flux core or just regular plain steel wire...
From my recollection, the settings on the maching were quite low, I don't recall the brand or any of the specs and I've already returned it witout much hope of getting more info about it...
I was looking at Amazon's mig welder products and I don't know which one I will need to do these projets... I see 110-120v units from 70amp all the way to 135 amps ...
Which one should I get ?
