I bought one from HF and the stud welder works just fine.
What was annoying was the puller.  It uses a knurled wheel
with an eccentric pivot to grip the stud and I couldn't get it
loose once I'd pulled a dent without pulling the pivot pin.

In general, those studs are a last resort when you
absolutely can't use a hammer and dolly.
