Ladies and Gents,
I want to get into welding soon, mainly to build a bumper because of a recent front end collision, and sliders, and whatever.
I have read and researched a TON on the differences and types of welders out there; from MIG, TIG, "stick", and whatever in between.
As stated, my main goal is to weld tube bumpers, sliders, and smaller projects; nothing huge like structural work.
1. I want something "simple" and DO NOT want to deal with gases and whatever.
2. Another MAJOR concern of mines is the power outlet consumption of the welder; I know I don't have any 240V outlets in the garage and do not want to get into making one (<<< probably kill myself).
3. Poor college student, so looking for a low cost but good one.
My choices are pretty much down to "stick" and MIG/flux core, mainly due to the simplicity of them. I understand the pros and cons of each and found some.
I just want opinions on these if they are good enough for tube bumpers, sliders, similar work.
Some that I'm interested in:
