Sorry about the blip, it's early. I have a 110 volt miller mig welder and have no trouble from it. As a suggestion, get .023 easy grind wire, and a piece of copper plate. The small diameter wire leaves less weld buildup, and is less likely to burn thru. When you have small holes to fill, back up the hole with the copper plate, and the hole will fill easy with no wiskers of wire on the backside. Have fun and good luck.

: I am preparing to purchase a MIG welder very soon to start repairing various body parts on the ole A. So far I am leaning toward a 220V version using argon gas. I am new to welding but am confident I can pick it up with practice in a short time.

: Any recommendations on brands and features would be appreciated.

: Also any welding tips from the body and fender guys, especially for sheetmetal, will come in handy too.
