Unfortunately I don't have power to the shed/barn at all. It's something I do eventually want to do, however.
All of the welding's going to be done in my garage and most (if not all) of it will be thin sheet metal. It's mostly fixing rust holes.
My brother made a very good point when I was talking to him this weekend. He said, get a wire welder and *if* you need to weld something thicker, tack weld the parts and take it to a welding shop. Unless of course I *want* both a wire and stick welder! LOL
You can weld heavy stuff with a wire welder. I do 1/4 and some 3/8 now and then. But I have a bigger machine than what you might find at Harbor Fright. It's a MIG 255. I also highly recommend you get one that uses gas (either nitrogen or MAP).
