You use different gas for thick material? Real question is will he be welding indoors or out. if outside with any wind, OP don't waste your money on gas and regs.

I picked up a 110 volt Forney to learn with. And will be using it for stiffeners vs the 220v Hobart I recently acquired.

Buy once, cry once. get a good machine that can do thick stuff and be turned down for thin stuff like stiffeners/frame rail. Don't be like me and end up with 3 welders.
