Default Welder

I would like to have a welder to fab/fix crap in my garage. I was looking at arc welders (because I don't have the $ for a MIG)...would this be an OK buy or is it crap?

My guess would be it's crap. Buy a lincoln buzz box, they aren't too expensive and they are much better than that one.

hope you wouldn't be building anything that could possibly save you life with thast thing. go to home depot and buy a 225amp lincoln electric buzz box for under $250. or go to a farm auction or sometimes even garage sales, these things are everywhere.
