I've never had any sorta luck with HF stuff that had more than three
moving parts AND electrical current running through it.  I recently
bought a similarly sized Lincoln welder that I absolutely love
(~$375).  I can find replacement parts relatively easy and best of
all, it's made right here in the Peoples Republic of Usa.  Mig (with
shield gas) is super/mega/hyper easy, but Oxy/Ace brazing can be
maddeningly tricky for a novice, so if you can do the latter, the
former will be a breeze.  I just use my Oxy/Ace torch for cutting or
heating stubborn fasteners, and do all my metal bonding work with the
Mig setup.
