    Harbor freight got cheap ones, but if you going to do alot of welding, you get what you pay for

    Might be easier to make recommendations if we knew what your budget was. "Limited" is different for everyone.

    My auto darkening one is a Harbor Freight one that I've had for years while welding in school every day and I've never had a problem with it. I would much rather go for a Miller or something else around $150 though. Just to make sure you're getting something halfway decent.

    Just got a Hobart auto arc for 99 bucks from Amazon. It has a replaceable battery. Some don't. Nice hood.
