    the ELDER WELDERS are right.........but if time and $ are a issue go with the miller student package (kicks a##)

    then get a set up like pjsman has ........210mig w spool gun

    i believe that you can get one on ebay for under 2grand

    for a novice a mig is going to be your best investment !!

    Welcome and I agree with Hank especially with Aluminum. As a beginner you will be wanting to go foreward but without the developed skills you will be frustrated. I use a mm210with a spoolgun, there are smaller less expensive machines but this has the power and duty cycle for big time fabrication on a budget.

    Peace,

    Ethen91,

    Welcome to the forum.

    From the information you provided, I suggest you seriously consider a welding school. After some formal training, you'll have an idea what the capabilities of various welding processes are and what equipment is needed to accomplish the task.

    I would not reccommend that that any beginner start out on 1" thick anything. There's much to learn before you get to that.

    Be well.
