If $300 is your limit for a complete setup...good luck. You probably can find a welder itself but I HIGHLY recommend argon/co2 gas hookup plus clamps are a necessity, magnets helps too. Plus an angle grinder is a welder's 2nd best friend. Also a helmet, auto dimming great for beginners. Those by itself can take up your $300 budget. Just an FYI.
