You can weld 1/4 " thick steel with a 130 or 140 amp mig. You just have to make good welds. A bigger welder does not make better welds it is the operator. You practice welding cut and break them to see how you are progressing before building anything. There are a few things where pentration is important and welding is one of them.

A TIG welder makes great welds but you better be a great oxy/acetylene welder or it will take a while to perfect. A MIG is much easier to learn. Unless you are doing as lot of aluminium and chromoly stick with the MIG. A good TIG welder makes a goos MIG welder inexpensive.
