          I hit pawn shops all the time. I've yet found one with a circuit for a welder let alone have you weld in the store. Get a return option if it does not work and not store credit, Cash back.

                there is one pawnshop down here that has the the power output to let you hook it up and if they don't they give you a 60 day return on it. this pawnshop also sells large generators that can easily run a welder and they are happy to let you fire them up what better way to test the welder and generator.

                  Different kind of pawn shop but first i think I would search and follow the "lists" for a few days and find something right for me at the right price. Who knows what goodies pop up with these deals, Have seen little DC buzzers for 200 and come with 75 ft of passable lead,,, ha. Lots of these are not "forced sales" have seen a lot where people just cleaning it out and want to rid of it for the cost of the trouble. Have seen cords and plugs, boxes of rod "thrown" in as while as you are here, most of the time I never fool with the price, I already called the guy,, I found paying the asking cost if its reasonable and what I want the sellers are often more than helpful. If I was starting out today thats the way I would fly, so much more used equipment available at low cost in todays world it would be well worth making a little hobby out of shopping for a few things.
                  Second like the man said, especially if you are student go and fill in a little forum info. The question is vague, profile yourself a little in the question, there must be a reason to want or need to learn to weld, etc. You got some tools or a place to work with 50 amp service, etc, your a farmer or landscaper, etc????
