You can pick up a used Lincoln "tombstone" or "buzz-box" AC arc welder for $100, sometimes less. That would be far better than a 120v flux core machine.

I wouldn't trust a 3pt welded with flux core wire.... but it's your machine. Just out of curiosity, what exactly do you use the 3pt for? Just a York rake?

Old doesn't mean obsolete, and new doesn't mean better.
