Asking on behalf of a friend. God knows I cant afford one. I'm still trying to scrape together money to upgrade my little Lincoln to gas. I shoulda listened to everyone's adivce on here and just waited a while to get a welder till I could afford one that came gas ready.. BUt, I'm getting off topic.. *hits self in head*
Friend of mine is looking to pick up a TIG welder in early january when he gets taxes back and asked me (I have raved about how good this board is) to ask you guys what machines he should look at. His welding experience is minimal, about the same as mine. He currently has an HF machine running Flux Core.
He's on a budget, but not at the cost of quality. He just wants recommendations on a good beginner unit. Primary use (once he and I learn to use it) will be welding aluminum I/C piping, SS and vanity work on aluminum intake's and the like. (smog system removal and cleanup type stuff). Hobby welder, not for production or selling of products.
