Miller 211

Bought a Miller 211 Mig. Dual power 110 and 220 and it has the auto weld haven't used that yet You set the thickness of steel and it sets the current and wire feed for you. So far I would recommend.

I'd be interested in giving that a test run. I have a buddy that has an auto set welder, sets current automatically by voltage sensing through the mig gun.
Not all welders are the same, gun movement, etc. I wonder how the auto feed would affect this. Id like to know how different movement speeds would look...

I had a old Decamig I bought used in 1992 that I used till it burned up.So when I got the Miller it was relearning big time.I used the auto set and it is alot better then I was doing with the adjustments to voltage and wire feed I was doing.
