Question Welding kit

I have needed to get parts welded many times, and I would like to get my own kit. I have a brazing kit, but the parts that I need are (for example) a washer needs welded to a gear and I can't use a torch to heat the metals as the metals will start to change shaped or melt. I need just a quick spot weld at a given location. What kits can I get to just give me a quick weld without needing to heat metals for a minute or longer?

There is a wide price when it comes to welding set-ups.

The type you purchase and how much you're wiling to spend depends on several things:

1) Your budget of course.

2) The type of material you are going to weld.

3) How often are you going to need it.

4) Portability may be a consideration.

And

5) You're skill level. (Although I do not advocate beginers learning to weld using cheap machines. Kinda like learning to fillet a fish using a cheap knife )

Also we usually don't refer to them as "kits".

It's usually called an outfit, setup, rig or just plane "welding machine"

Try to give us a little more detail about #'s 1-5, and I'm sure I or someone hear can steer you in the right direction.
