If you just want to get started, Harbor Freight has some pretty cheap stuff that works.

For a Mig welder, you might want to invest in a decent one right off the bat, like a Lincoln or Miller.

Can you take shop classes in school? That's a great way to get access to different types of machinery and get your feet wet.

I've thought of air brushes too, but I've been told they are so finicky they are a PITA.

A decent mig may cost a little more than a so called cheapie but not enough to make a big difference. Check out the the Miller post just below.
