If you are doing non critical welds on mild steel should be fine. 1/4" or less thickness of metal.

I have one. It works great for sheet metal and quick not critical jobs. The small gun is real nice for sheet metal. I use a TIG for all of the important stuff. (roll bar tubing, rear end housing, suspension stuff, etc.)

A 110 wire feed machine is great for doing body/sheetmetal work, but I wouldn't trust it for doing chassis/roll cage work.

Welding a cage/frame with .120" or .134" wall tubing really needs a 220 wire machine with E70S-6 wire that's in the .035" range to be safe.

I use a Lincoln 135SP everyday at work, (body work) with .025 wire. I have a 220 mig with .035 and tig for anything thicker.
Cant go wrong with a Lincoln mig welder.
