    ive got a clarke 160a ARC welder yoused it on all my robots 3mm to 8mm steel its lasted me 11 years now and still going strong, we got it from machinemart they have still sell it

    but you can get slightly cheaper versions lidl and aldi sometimes have them quite cheep and the bonus with the stick welder is there is less to go wrong

    also the bonus with the 1 your looking at is that you can convert it to a tig

    Smoke and splatter might be an issue in your flat, TIG would be the 'cleanest'
