Hello, new here but long time lurker looking at peoples advice on welding machines. Im somewhat new to welding with 1 years on the job experiance and a Lvl 1-2 C&G Mig and currently studying lvl 1 C&G MMA, still learning and still wet behind the ears ! Welding machines rebranded & branded. Im in the market for a 200-250amp MIG/MMA machine and have been looking in to the cheaper sub £500 area for some time now and from what i have read from you guys you seem to not ''HATE'' Sherman, Static Arc and the Rohr brand. From reviews i find on these brands they seem pretty decent for a home user and not using it in and industrial setting. Another question is, is there any good cheaper brands that give you full knobbed control of Volts & Feed for both MIG and MMA, the switch type are just pointless as they dont give you fine control of either functions.
