If you want to get a welder that's going to last and actually function well get a Lincoln, the red ones. A few simple rules to go by solid wire you push. Flux core or self shielding pull. Always go bottom to top (uphill)
Stick is easier than wire fed to control when it comes to the volts and amps ratio.

Id suggest getting a small stick welder and a 70 18 stick 3/32 its a low hydrogen drag rod bc draging it is all you have to do. Any big welds you have to make just bevel the joint or over size the weld don't try to slow down and run a huge bead run lots of stringer beads.

I dable in welding a bit.
