Me too,
I would love to get the Miller DVI it has the 110 and the 220 plug it is the best of the Millermatic 135 at 110v and the Millermatic 175 at 220v. Gas or Gas less operation. plus with the two different power options it does become somewhat portable. Oh well I'll keep on wishin. With a baby commin, (I pray) I will be holding off for a while on any more toys.

What would you use it for?

I could do some small repairs for folks. Hitch installs, Make some Iron stuff. Was also thinking of building some bike trailers.
I have seen some that lool like a letter "T" And i thought that would be a good project. Dunno really. But I have rented one several times fron the Rent anything place and have had a local welder do up a thing or two for me at his house that if I just had the stupid thing myself I could hopefully make it pay for its self. Just a thought.

I just picked up a Miller Econtig. It is awsome. Can stick or tig Steel or Aluminum together. Put together a rear wheel pit stand with about $24 of steel. Adding some old roller blade wheels and fab the brackets to hold the swing arm spools and it is done, hopefully this weekend. I welded up a Vortex rear brake pedal that snap in a low side ($58 replacement cost). Have some suspension tool projects in the works as well. If you get one you'll find things to do with it. Just like a bike, you get one and you find all kind of reasons to ride.

Cool stuff Rob,
That is what I am talking about. I have always been a do it your self kinda guy for the most part. I have already wired the garage for 220v and have a helmet spark jacket, well everything but the welder. I know I want a mig and nothing less than 220v But I really like the DVI because of the 110 option. Bottom line is MILLER> :dthumb:
