Hi, I'm hoping for a bit of advice please.

My husband is really into his DIY and would like to learn how to weld. I want to buy him a welder for his birthday but I have got no idea where to start.

Could anyone recommend a good one, but nothing to complicated for a beginner?

Thanks very much.

There's a thread here about which welder to get

It also depends on what he would want to weld, and how much roughly do you want to spend?

Thanks I'll have a look at that!

He is looking to make a metal frame shed but I'm not sure what type of metal he would be using. Obviously he would have to practice first. I would like to try and keep the price under £200 if possible

Its not just the welder you should buy him, he will need all the safety kit too, although you can't put a price on life, the safety kit that Screwfix have is not that badly priced for "entry level kit" Click here Although others may have differing opinions

What sort of stuff would he like to weld? Where he'd be welding (garden? garage?) Can you give us an idea of budget too?
