i anm gonna weld the steel drums for the proscessor any advice on what welding machine i should get i wanna weld the drums but i also want the welder to be able to weld like a car frame so it needs to able to do diffrent things
If you are welding drums and want to do actual frame work, a MIG over 200 amps (either Lincoln or Miller) would do the job.
Practice for many, many hours before welding anything on which life depends, and visit welding forums like weldingweb, the Hobart forums, and the millerwelds forum.
I like stick welding, but would get a stick machine with DC capability so I could run a much greater variety of rods. The AC225 Lincoln has a brother that does DC too, or get a used Lincoln Idealarc 250/Miller Dialarc 250 (large, heavy, very nice, last forever).
