I have the HH187 and the reviews are right on. Most projects you will desire to accomplish will require more power than the 115V outfits can provide. Look for a used 220 unit if money is a problem otherwise keep saving.

Try posting a wanted ad on Craigslist with your budget and you might get a bite quicker than watching.

As you can see from the last few posts, the 175- 180 amp size seems to be about right for us non-professional home welders. I think you will like MIG as even an amateur like me can produce some nice looking welds on occasion. The secret to finding a great bargain is ever the same - keep looking
