Stick welding with a tiny machine is for the birds. A 110v MIG from Miller or Lincoln (or Hobart) will do what you want with ease and the newer Chicom units work pretty well, too. You can't burn 1/2 plates in a single pass, but they will blow holes through 1/8" steel. If you don't want to drag a tank out for something then just load up flux core wire into the MIG.

Nowadays you could probably pick up a Syncrowave 250 for chump change, but it's not very portable and won't run on 110v!
