welding question, please help

I'm new to welding. I have and old FORNEY stick welder that I play with. I
want a wire feed welder so that I can weld sheet metal. Does anyone make a
kit to put a spool gun on an arc welder? Is it possible? Welding is just a
hobby for me and I really enjoy it, I just don't want to go spend $300 and
up for a wire feed welder if it is not necessary.
Thanks, Cris

Yes they make one but it's not much cheaper than buying a decent MIG welder. Check out:

Click on "Comparison Charts" for prices. They can be had for less but I'm not up on the going price. Seems like the lowest I've seen is $375. There are a few listed on eBay in the $400 to $480 range.

Left out one minor detail. Your FORNEY unit needs to output DC current to work with the READYWELDER II.

Thanks for the help. The welder does have DC output so that you can charge a car battery, but I'm not sure how many volts. I need to look at it.
