  1. I’ve looked at the welder section and it looks to be all migs. With a bit of luck I will be able to buy a mig off Lewis. However at the Newbury sort out I did pick up a cheap (it was free :-) )arc welder to maybe do the one job I have at the moment. not sure it works yet and Earth might need some attention but I did look into arc welding a lot more. It’s downside seems to be it’s a bit slower due to rods and you need to clean to weld but will be happier powering through rust a bit more and flux rods mean no gas required. Thermal arc 175 arc looks a good bit of kit that would also do lift tig (not quite sure what that is) in future. They seem to hold their value so maybe get one and then I’d have all the options ? How much difference does inverter vs transformer make ? If budget is 5 to use is a nicer one maybe 7 or 8 out of 10? My welding experience is zero so learning to do on whatever. My current job is a 4mm weld tab back on the bulkhead. will the budget arc do a reasonable (or even poor as long as it holds) job and where is a good place to earth to for the bulkhead ?
