Millermatic 211, ESAB Rebel or Lincoln 210 MP
OK so I'm about ready to take the plunge and make the big purchase. Wondering what if any experience you all have with any of the title welders.
Millermatic 211: is a stand alone Mig Welder.
ESAB Rebel: Is a multi function machine that does mig, stick and tig welding.
Lincoln 210 MP: Is a multi function machine that does mig, stick and tig welding.
They all seem like very capable machines. My primary goal when doing my research was to get the best Mig welder I could for the type of welding I plan on doing. While finalizing my decision I was introduced to ESAB Rebel. That took me back to square one. Now I don't know if I want a single unit that does all 3 Mig Stick and Tig or do I want to keep my processes separate so if one machine becomes dysfunctional for what ever reason I still have others to fall back on?
After looking at some of the ESAB Rebel videos I have to say I like what I see.
