    Mig welder advice please.

    I'm fairly competent at arc welding but have never used a mig or know anything about them. Are these cheap sub £100 ones any good? I don't see me doing much with it but I do need to fix a hole in the exhaust of an old tractor here so I've taken it in my head to do it myself because I can't do a...
