I think it would be really nice to be able to fab little stuff for my truck like beefing up my bud builts, making a hoop for my sliders, and building a bed rack. Any advice for a complete noob? Im only 16 btw.
Go with Miller or Hobart. Both are basically the same thing, but i have never had problems with the Millers. The fab shop I worked for, my highschool and tech school ran millers. Can't beat em IMO. If you decide to go with the 110/120v outlet route, I'd suggest getting a 135A welder. You can weld up to 1/8 or a 1/4" or more if you heat up thicker metal with a torch you can really go up to 1/2" easily. Migs are awesome though, they're squirt guns
