    dont spend to much

    With you starting out just get something simple that is easy to use and simple to operate. In this starting process you dont need a fancy machine with all the toys included. When you get more est. and more practice then I would upgrade.

    he did say something about working three jobs for it.
    and back when i was in high school welding was done by rubbing the metal together fast enough for it to melt and stick together. OK not that old but not much more then you chose of a tomb stone or a tomb stone.

    the hobart 140 is a good machine i use on at my friends shop but if you have to weld over 1/4 plate then what? USA is going to be one of the great tig and stick welders to ever get splater burned. ok maybe not but he is looking for tig for sure.

    id say do with the dyn.200 it's a great overall and usefull machince. and if you need something bigger you'd get your money back on reselling it.

    Buy a used TA-185, at minimum. Or a Dynasty 200 DX. Both are expensive. The Diversion won't stick weld, so it's a single process welder; a deal killer for me. Spend the money now, it's a lifetime investment.

    srry but i didnt think you ever asked wht kind of welding just what i wanted to weld on.

    So is this a test? We're supposed to be mind readers? And what's srry and wht?

    Look for a used Sync- you already know the price of a new one

    Adding Alooominum into the Mix adds to the Cost

    What machine are you using at School?

    The second question would be how much do you want to spend?
