I just purchased a lincoln SP 175 plus, and am very pleased with it so far. If you go with a Lincoln I'd recommend the SP series over the Weldpaks you find at farm stores etc. The SP 175 plus has better features (constant voltage for one) and comes ready to weld with gas or flux core wire. I purchased it from a welding supply store and it was only a few dollars more than the Weldpak 155 anyways. I also looked at the Miller 170, and it is a fine machine, however it only goes down to 40 amps whereas the Lincoln will go down to 25. If you really want 110 volt input, than the Miller 130 seems like the best one out there to me.
