I think you'd be better off getting a good stick welder, the MIGs are fine for thinner stuff... I bought my AC/DC Miller used from a free ad shopper paper, many years ago, small, but it don't eat much, is tucked in the garage where I can use the dryer ckt, or I added another outlet on the shop outside wall so I can stay clear of the fumes.. Ive a 50 HEAVY extension cord, must be 10ga.. So far have not been limited, but it's been a while, I'd have to either buy new sticks or at least dry the ones I have.. I think I paid $200... Also have a small MIG, only way to go fir sheet metal, simple repairs... $35 at the flea market, was set up for gas, I wanted it simple, cored wire, so I had to reverse polarity, fiddle a bit.. Some, Lincolns have it simpler, I had to rewire the internals, add a relay to get the feed motor going.. Check craiglist in your area, I've seen real deals, locally, guys moving up or out... weco
