Hi all ..sorry not directly bike related post but can anyone in the group give me some advice on buying a welder for home use .. I have done some welding work a long time ago

I want to use it for s/s exhaust work and minor fabrication of brackets and alike ..Also is there a model that i can use on ali as well as steel .. I read it's best to change polarities for thin Ali .. I've read to steer clear of cheap eBay welders coz their just not that good although they offer all the features ..

I've done quite a bit of reading and got conflicting info .. Cheerz ..AL..
