I'm looking for a good quality compact MIG welder, I'm not too fussed about price, I'm more interested in quality and reliability.
I've got a large garage MIG welder, with a full size industrial gas bottle, but I need something that I can put in the boot and take with me. Preferably the type that use the small wire reels, and the disposable gas bottles.
It's only for doing bodywork, and general car welding.
So, can anyone suggest a good quality, compact MIG?

I think it works well enough. Don't be tempted by a second hand one though, you'll end up spending any saving on getting all the liner, swan neck and tips (and maybe motor) replaced. they're only about £100 anyway if you catch one of them VAT free days and there's sure to be someone else cheaper mail order.
I'll leave it up to you to decide if it works well enough from the photos of my welds
