Welders

I'm wanting to get an intro type welder. My only welding experience was 30 years ago in metal shop, heh. Anyhow, I'm wanting something fairly inexpensive, as in less than $500, something simple to use, but I'm clueless as to what is out there and companies, etc. Any help.

You can just do a bottle exchange. I'm not sure if you can just buy your own bottle and have it refilled or not. I don't do much welding away from work.

I had Welding during my Jr and Sr yrs in HS. A vocational school.

I could kick ass on TIG, welding stainless.

Tig welding is with a pointed Tungsten rod. It doesn't come in contact with the workpiece.

I was good with the Oxy-Acetylene welding, too.

Aced that class both years.

My sr yr we got a new wire feed that didn't require Argon.

It was a centered-cored flux. Heavier gauged wire. That was cool as shit. It burned very hot with brighter than usual arc.

Damn, I forgot how much I enjoyed that class.
