Finally getting settled in Daytona and had a chance to unbox the new Vulcan MIGMax 215 welder. I am not a seasoned pro fabricator by any means, but I have to say that I am really impressed. Easy to set up, stable arc, and clean welds so far. If anything, I'll change the regulator to one with a flow meter as opposed to the pressure gauge, but otherwise I am leaving it alone. It has gotten really great reviews on their site and some of the YouTube pages. I have to agree. 

FWIW I am running Blue Demon ER70S6 wire in it.

I've been eyeballing their ProTIG 200. A AC/DC tig with aluminum capability for $900 is very tempting.

In reply to Toyman01 :

Based on the experience with the mig so far, that will most likely be the next purchase.

I bought the flux 125 about 6 months ago because I’ve never welded before and I’ve had a blast. I’d love a tig I think- but is the only advantage cleaner welds and thicker metal? Please excuse my ignorance.

You can modify them to provide DC current for the flux wire which provides a better weld with less splatter.

Ditching their wire for quality stuff helps too.

Google HF Flux Welder Mods and you can get some ideas.
