I am a Building Engineer in PHILADELPHIA, so I have many trade hats as you would know. I would like to start learning how to weld, 1st starting off at home just tinkering around and then when I get good fabricating new brackets and repairing damaged ones. I wanted to know what Type of set-up is best to start off with, w/o breaking the bank? I would like to Repair lighter weight brackets to middle weight brackets, down to fixing damaged hinges and so on. Also does anyone know of welding classes I could take in the Philly area?

Most all of the craftsman machines are made by century, who is now owned by Lincoln. For light to medium use you will do okay with them

I've had my lincoln weld pak for 9 years it gets used constantly. it got me started in business and i still use it almost everyday. i have never had one problem with it breaking down, it has been one of the most reliable small welders I've ever had.
