I agree with you 100%, I just posted those links as a starting point. I have
a nice little Clarke welder (made in Italy of all places), and it works very
well. I also have a coffin-top lincoln stick welder but I rarely get it out
anymore as most of what I break or fabricate seems to be 1/4" or less in
thickness so the wire welder does just fine. (And for me, has been much
easier to achieve nice results than with the stickwelder).
