Lincoln is the way to go. I settled for a Blue Hawk MIG. Does the job but wish I would've invested in a REAL welder.
I was wondering if anyone could point out some examples of popular Mig welder models
used in shops to weld brackets/cages etc.
Most SHOPS around here run Miller's. If you are looking to pick something up, I would go for a Lincoln, Miller, or Hobart. And definately over 180 amps if you want to do anything structural (220 volt).
Miller for professional/ Hobart or Lincoln for home use. (Hobart is Miller with a few less bells and whistles) As said above, stick with a 220v. I have never met someone with a 110 that didn't wish they had more power at one time or another.
I have 220V ready to go. Miller does seem very popular.
I'm looking at the "Millermatic 211". I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post a link. What do you guys think of the specs ? Or save up for 212 which is like 600$ more ? I was hoping to be completely set up for under 1500$usd.

Every body shop I've ever worked in had either or both Lincoln and Miller. I prefer Lincoln the feed is much smoother.

I prefer Miller over them all. I have a Miller 210. Love it
Miller 211 is a great machine.
