I've always wanted to learn how to weld and get a welder. With me really starting to get into prop building, I think it is the next step. The problem is that I don't know much about welding and neither does any of my friends. I've been researching on the web but would like to get some real opinions from people who actually have used them. I know that you want to stick with a good name brand. I would need one that will run off of 115V, be gas/gasless capable, not too expensive, and be sold on Amazon. I get Amazon points on my credit card and am saving up. I don't want something that I will out grow in a year so I would rather save up for a better one than buy one right now. My price range will be around $600. I will probably be asking for the accessories for Christmas (mask, gloves, clamps, etc...) Thanks for any help/advice.
