    To be honest i picked up that same machine from the store and returned it without even using it because it was to cheapo. It doesnt have amp settings or a foot pedal ect. I would check into a century if you looking for cheap and durable.

    Choosing an AC/DC will allow for more welding options should you find it easy to become proficient with SMAW. As for name brand- Both that you have mentioned have good reputations. Don’t forget about Sears- easy credit then you’ll be stick welding sooner. What about Harbor Freight from reading the threads from there stuff might provide a cheaper option? Good luck with the SMAW it will be faster than TIG and the bonus is you can still weld with your fan blowing on you during the hot days of summer.

    Try WWW.CRAIGSLIST.ORG and then pick a state/city that is close to you. You can search "welder". In Tampa, FL a guy had a Miller Stick 220 for 150.00

    if si it would be best to save up a lil and get a decent buzz box. after all it will last a life time.

    is there anyones u can just use ur own rod to practice with and use their welder? when i started welding i bought my own hood, rod,grinder ect. and used g-pas welder till i got my own and so when i got it there was nothin else to buy except the welder cause i already had it all.
