    Check out the PrecisionTig 185 http://tig185.com/

    (I know this is the "MILLER" board but i think it deserves a casual mention. )

    And that's not much more than the new Econo. The simple addition of the balance control is worth it, since you mentioned alum. And it's a squarewave machine - not inverter square - but leaps and bounds better than the Econo's sinewave output.

    Here's one at Cyberweld for $1676.00, brand new, torch, pedal, regulator, hoses, everything.

    3/16 AL and steel. Maybe 1/4" once in a while,

    i think you are realy pushing the limits of the econo tig.
    you might look into the syncro 180 or the TA185
    the syncro is tryed and true and a great lil tig welder.
    the TA185 has gotten some good feedback on the hobart site mostly but is another option
    you can pick up a syncro 180 on the net for under $1500.00 ready to weld
    the TA runs about $1800.00 if space is an ishue
    i have herd that the econo can do 3/16th but it would be pushing it prity hard.
    good luck

    started a topic Econotig Ac/dc

    Econotig Ac/dc

    I just purchased a MM175 and now I'm looking into a TIG welder, does anyone have input on the Miller Econotig AC/DC? I do automotive/motorcycle work and I would be welding 18 gauge to 3/16 AL and steel. Maybe 1/4" once in a while, but that would probably be more for fun than actual work. Any input would be great. I know that the Dynasty 200dx is probably better, but I don't think that I will be using it enough to justify the extra money. I'm trying to do this on a shoe string, I have a wedding coming up in June.
    Or does anyone know of any used TIG units for sale? Thanks for you help-
