    Tig raises the bar in many respects, both for challenging your abilities and for your customer's end product. This in turn increases word of mouth business. That is something that is hard to put a price on.
    Get the better machine if you have any plans of bettering yourself in the future. I always overbuy my present needs. Haven't gone wrong on that yet.

      If you can currently tig 20-24 ga stainless, then getting a machine with 500 pps isn't going to help much. I do a lot of 16-20 ga stainless and I normally run anywhere from 2.4 to 60 pps. I rarely go above but I have found some nice spots at 240 and 450 pps.

      A machine is still only as good as the joint design/fit up.

      I have the dynasty and it is a nice machine.

      Also, PPS is a good guide, but setting proper background and peak time is more important IMO then PPS.

        What I'm seeing in video tutorials is that fit up has to be really tight for tig. I'm laying in a lot of fill sometimes with the mig. Closing 1/8" gaps is common. Questioning tig purchase.

          Yes a tight fitup is very important for TIG... as is maintaining rigorous cleanliness of the joint area... unlike MIG which is not so particular.....

          but once you start to develop some proficiency in the process you will be hooked...

          Nothing is as pretty as a well executed TIG bead...

          TIG is the most versatile welding process available....
