Would be nice to think I will become sufficiently competent and confident to take on 'outside work'. I look forward to the day.

Ibayorkie, Re auto darkening screens Lidl had them in a couple of weeks ago may have some left. they work fine, had mine over a year. Take a look at weld UK site, looks grand but  he a one man band  works out of a large shipping container in the back garden, all the big stuff comes direct from suppliers. You can use small disposable gas bottles which will need a regulator to fit the pipe on the back of the welder.

For my gas req...I use a pub type Co2 bottle and an oxy reg from a oxy-acetylene welding set with an adapter for the the Co2 bottle.

Oxy regs can be picked up second hand quite cheaply if req.

Nick, I agree with the pub CO2 and oxy reg for someone doing some welding at home, but Ibayorkie  said he didn't want to spend to much sorting it and these welder usually came with a disposable bottle and reg it my be a cheaper option. If he gets use to it he could upgrade later.
