    what material are you welding? steel? aluminum?

    Miller and Lincon both make good machines. Their light duty stuff is pretty durable for use at home.

    Mig Welding

    it is called a MIG welder, what thickness metal are you welding? you can get away with a 115W suitcase welder. that will weld uptoo 3/16in steel. if you are going to do alluminum then go for a tig welder, or you will have to get a larger 220W welder with a spool gun

    if you are interested in wire feed welding
    my best sujestion to you is to take a small welding cource at your local comunity coledge
    wire feed or MIG welding has advantages and disadvantages over conventional stick welding
    aluminum is a metal all to its own and needs spetial teckniques to work properly, it can be welded by MIG or TIG

    You may have limited success teaching youself stick welding on steel, but I will just about gurantee you that you will be lost welding on aluminum with a wire feed machine, and REALLY lost doing TIG work on aluminum without some competent instruction. Do take a course at the local junior college, get some decent equipment if you are going to be serious, (the cheap stuff is just that..) and then you can charge your buddies to put together clean attractive and safe welds for them.
