I'm trying to choose between 2 120 volt Lincoln MIG welders. One has 4 voltage settings and the other has continuously variable voltage settings and costs a bit more. Is it worth the extra dollars for this feature for a home welder? Thanks for any advice.

Mine has infinite heat selection, and it's very handy. I think it's worth the extra cost. Be sure to get a welder that uses gas. Flux core sucks.

Good Luck!

I recently bought a Lincon 110 volt welder. After a lot of searching and pricing, I found the best deal was actually at Home Depot. They carry a 110 unit called Lincon 3200HD. It comes with everything for gas except obviously the tank. All the other Lincon 110 migs that I found were rated at up to 1/4" steel, this one is rated at 5/16" steel. The cost was around $480.00. It works way better than my expectations!! Good luck

Thanks, I'll check out Home Depot. I think I'm leaning toward the model with the infinite adjustment. Hey Mike, I just checked out your web page. Really nice Mustang you got there.
