What brands of MIG welders would be good for the home DIYer? I'm looking at doing mostly patch panels. I know Lincoln is a good brand. Any others?

Miller, Hobart, and HTP are all good quality machines. I havn't ever tried to use the foreign brands so I can't say much about them.

I've got a millermatic 130 that does a very good job and I have no complaints. I've welded very thin sheet metal and frame rails with no problem at all. My first project was a welding cart out of 2" angle iron 1/8" thick. It turned out great. Lincoln also makes a very good welder. Can't go wrong with either of the two.

I've been trying to decide on whether to buy a Lincoln MIG Pak 10, 15, or just get the AC 100 and add a spot welding gun.

I'd like a MIG set-up, but the $200 price of the AC 100/spot welding set-up is tempting.
