In this video I try out my brand new Miller Millermatic 211 welder I just purchased to replace my old and broken Mac Tools MW135. It appears this one should fit the needs of the shop and hopefully lasts a long time. -Enjoy!

    Nice job Mr. O !……..My step dad & uncles shoved a stick (old Lincoln buzz box) in my hand when I was in my late single digits. I thought they were doing me a favor and being nice teaching me. Turns out they wanted me to learn so they could push stuff off on me….lol. It started me out on a life of it all…..I attended Ag classes and welding schools throughout my school years and it's been an amazing skill to learn…….new stuff all the time. Learning never stops……and a fun part of life.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chuck Schmutz says:

    First time using sweet welds I like what i am looking to buy a mig and I am a miller fan anyways I weld stick all the time and I have a miller inverter DC and love it. Been welding 40 years mostly stick welder, looking to get into mig just for the fun of it. I like what I am seeing on the Miller 211. Thank you for the video

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cecilia Chan says:

    How is it holding up 1 yr later? ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dom Johnson says:

    It's obvious that eric isn't a welder otherwise he would have noticed that those weld beads were as good as you get for welding dirty uncleaned metal. Speaks to how nice that machine is.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Kennemer says:

    Beautiful

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug Mottert says:

    nice

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Bob says:

    Thanks for the demo. Those welds look really good for first welder use.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gerardo Lira says:

    Holy shit! Thatโ€™s what Iโ€™m aiming for!!! Thatโ€™s textbook, IMO.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron Newby says:

    Not bad for a mechanic

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matthew Wisenbaugh says:

    I really like the box!!!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jc Sosa says:

    The Millermatic 211 is great machine. I have been welding since high school mid 90th and the 211 I use it for outside installations( fluxcore or gas) great video ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Temo B says:

    THE BEST MECHANIC + SUPER GOOD WELDER. GOOD JOB Sr.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Smith says:

    Dang nice weld! Thanks man.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kevin childress says:

    Itโ€™s called a boilermakers Hat

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Weitlauf says:

    nice welds Mr O, i have a Miller 175 im going to check out the 211. looks like a nice welder.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The mechanic Man says:

    I like his channel in the work he does but why does it always sound like he has a slur or his nose is plugged up when he talks

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrReadandlearn says:

    How's that 211 workin ? Mine sucks and after warranty it's not going to get used after the fix. I'll sell it before it whacks me again.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jonathan says:

    unfortunately that skipping is a characteristic of our miller 269455welders. I cant stand it. i'm hoping when i get one of those big ground clamps from Hazard Fraud that it will eliminate the skipping but I have my doubts, I think miller dropped the ball and id yet to pick it up..
    Send my regards to the boys in cooperate

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ray Voorhies says:

    I predict a Wrought Iron Railing fence getting built at Eric's house. ๐Ÿ‘ That welder is the perfect size for jobs like that.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jussi Kuusela says:

    Welding is something I never got a good hold of… can't even compare to your "un"professional results. I only ever got some passable results with sticks 46 and 63 (not sure if you have them named so, 46 is a "black" steel, somewhat porous, and 63 is acid resistant).

    63 gave a neat silvery and bluish bead, was easy to strike and never stuck.

    For the 48 stick, I can well relate to why it is called stick welding. It kept sticking and it was hard to strike.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Martin Kucic says:

    Nice mig welder Eric.
    As long as you donโ€™t burn through.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Frank Heiss says:

    Hey Erik Good luck Miller is a Great Machine ,,,I have one and after using 3 other Mig welders ,,Its the best and smoothest welder i have ever used ,,,One sugestion,,My welding suppliers , tell me i should run on the 220 Volt phase as it will give me more stable welding and penetration on all different modes from lite sheetmetal to heavy 1/4 inch frames or even castings,,One other things to check make sure the correct feed roller was put in for whatever wire you are running ,,When i started with mine it ran ok but just seemed to pulse a little ,,i checked and it had an .030 and Since mostly welding sheet metal I like 023 for liter welds ,,Am sure it will give you many years of service

    My new Miller 211 is waiting for me at my local vendor. Picking her up on Tuesday, 6-30-2020. Iโ€™m a car hauler. Cracks are a certainty on car hauler trailers. Thx for the video. Enjoyed it.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nemg says:

    you should never go towards youre ground while welding it create a magnetic force thats why it was skipping or what ever ahah ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott P. says:

    Been a mechanic since i was a teenager too

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott P. says:

    And as for wire lincon makes the best as for gas 90/10 mixture 90 argon 10 co2

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott P. says:

    Been a professional welder for 27 years it sounds good u could back the wire speed up a little too get it too spray more but your beads look good always run good wire miller is the top of the line

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 135SoHc says:

    Picked up one of these from the local supply shop today. Set it up and on the very first weld it came out perfect. The auto set mode is like cheating.
    I started learning on a HTP 2400 and that is also a good machine but the stepped power settings on thinner stuff were just not good enough. Too cold or too hot I found a lot of the time. Last year I bought their new 220 pro pulse and that thing was a total POS from day one. Never ran right and the only thing it was good at was burning the wire into the tip and burning your patience right along with it.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars S. J. says:

    Thanks for the demo Mr. O. Now I have an idea of which welder to either buy or compare it too.
