I bought a small Harbor Freight MIG welder to learn with for $115 on sell. It's 120v 125a unit. It's small, cheap, works, and fits in my small FC storage bays. It was even used off my generator to repair John Finns generator slide once in Arizona after a tree attacked him at our White Tanks rally.

Keep in mind it is cheap, but it works! Duty cycle is only 20% at 90a and I've had it stop and needed to cool down, but so does my $500 Miller unit too. It's good with 1/8" material I typically weld with it.
