I know a bottle of gas is like $75, then plus the helmet, and you're over 400. I think a 500 budget is easier. I remember a few guys on here saying that the 110v MIGs blow balls compared to the 220v. I don't know. It depends on what you're doing, sheetmetal or some structural welding. I know quite a few guys who are happy with 110v MIGs. I'm too broke to get either, but I think for what you like to do a 110v would be fine from what I gathered. I'm sure Nick has all the stats and has already preplotted them.
