    I don't think you'll ever regret your choice. Having just a lowly Powermax 30, I'm jealous.

        Not to dissuade you from the 211, but have you considered the Hobart 210 MVP? It's a transformer base, vs. the inverter of the 211. A friend of mine recently got one, the thing welds beautifully.

            I am personally not a fan of multi-process machines, but might be a good fit for you if you’re doing metal art.

            Don’t be fooled by it though. The machine may be multi-process, but to get that functionality, you have to buy the parts for it, like the tig torch, foot pedal, etc. All that stuff adds up quick.

            Not really sure what kind of art you plan on doing, but a guy can very quickly get into tig with a scratch start rig.

              yeah i have seen you have to buy the other items for the multi process machine and see where it can add up it was just a thought i see your point

                Any DC stick welder can be used as a tig with scratch start. I actually still use scratch start if I’m working on a trailer or something heavy that o don’t necessarily need the function of a foot pedal to make things happy. Scratch start is being done even in nuclear facilities today. Not a thing wrong with it. Certainly has limitations, but it been done for eons and will continue to be used until the end of days. Give it some thought, it’ll save you money too.

                    It is indeed a lot packed into a small package. I’ve never used the newer style, but the older model is an excellent machine.
