        I would strongly recommend saving up a bit more money and buy a Miller or Lincoln product.
        When the day comes that you need parts or service, and that day will come, Miller and Lincoln will be there to take care of the problem.

          Eastwood sponsors a lot of motor and power sports stuff, so they have somewhat of a presence around those folks. My drag racing buddy said one day, and I know someone is going to get their panties knotted up when I say this and go all "well I can weld that better with my feet and blind folded with my Eastwood than you can with your dynasty...." ....anyway, my buddy said, and it made me chuckle, those who don't know what they're doing buy an Eastwood. I find that to be, by and large, an accurate statement.

          So if you plan to use it to keep the dust off your shop floor, you could get a chunk of wood, it would be cheaper. If you're serious about getting a tig welder, buy a real machine. That's not to sound snobby, it's just the truth. What is it you plan to do anyway? What sort of welding?

            Especially since you can get a red one for $1449.
