Budget welder for occasional aluminium welding..
Hi people. New to the forum (but an old visitor to Woodwork forums) and I've read and searched (probably poorly) and can't find an answer specific enough. My apologies if this has been covered ad nauseam.
I do not do much welding but I am looking for a basic unit which will also allow me to weld aluminium (2-3mm). I'm being told to look for a mig/stick and a spool gun, but basic. To give an idea, one recommended was the Viper 182 MIG-MMA. With a spool gun it will (supposedly) do a decent job on aluminium (once I practice enough, I am told) and with the kit it runs to around $1000. Is something like this a credible option? I do not know enough to look for second-hand options.
