Ill be starting to work on fabrication on my uni course and im looking to buy a mig welder and start learning at home. Need some advice on what to buy. Will be aiming to do a bit of work on some car body panels at a later stage. Got a budget of around £300 to buy a welder and gear, but is flexible if need be any words of wisdom would be very helpful.
clarke 150 is a very good diy welder won many awards and can get plenty of spares from machine mart and the like unlike some other makes where spares can be hard to come by, +1 on auto darkening helmet as very handy bit of kit
if you want a cheap welder and are learning i would get a gasless mig as there very portable and if you can get a good weld with one of these then you will get a brilliant weld with a gas welder and as said by everyone else auto darkening helmet is a must
