Lincoln 210

Hey guys, anyone running s Lincoln 210 welder? I've run mostly a cheepo flux core and looking to upgrade to a welder that can develop as my skills grow (i.e aluminum mig, aluminum tig etc.). I've read a lot of great reviews about Miller products, but the similar model (Miller multimatic 215) is slightly more expensive than the 210 mp model. Not looking for a Lincoln vs. Miller debate, but rather feedback based on day-to-day usage. Thanks.

Buying a new welder both have the same 3 year warranty !!

Go with what ever color has the best support in your area .

Lincoln has been cutting costs to be able to undersell Miller at least in this area .

No matter which way you go sit down and read the owners manual

I recently bought a Hobart 110v with gas. I checked around at several different models and they all seemed to be comparable. I think Hobart is made by Miller or Lincoln. I think Lincoln makes another brand. For me it came down to the best price for what I was looking for. For the hobbyist, I feel most will meet their needs. My friends have different models and I have used them they do the same as mine.

A professional welder might have a different opinion. Since you are just learning ( same as me) I think any good brand welder will work.

Hey Terry, yeah as far as I know Horbart is made by Miller. I've heard some hobart machines actually having miller stamped parts. Price is important but I'm drawn to the versitility in these multi process machines. Hobart has one as well called the handler 210. Also seems to be a good machine

Hobart is built by the same parent company that owns Miller

All the parts have Miller part numbers

The only minor downside and not critical for the hobby type use is the wire drive assembly .

Hobart would be my choice for the Hobby type use
