    I suggest buying an arc welder, sure the learning curve is harsh but if you can do well with an arc your 3/4 of the way there and you can do a lot with one. What would you want to do with one exactly? just practice?

    Unimigs are good units. Italian made, and most of them run binzel style guns so they are easy to get parts for.

    Good price?

    ah sweet. Yeah hopefully will get it for $800-900, is that a decent price? Apparently it's hardly been used and comes with a gas bottle aswell.

    if you want something that will last for many years to come regardless of how much you use it then I suggest the ESAB 200 like myself, however thats in the region of $2000, if that's too much look at the other welders on this thread.
