    I would say Dynasty 200DX or Sycrowave 200 if you have enough power now, just need to do aluminum as well.

    Can't go wrong

    After wandering around a couple of welding shops I am confused about a TIG welder. I have a Maxstar 200 STR which is basically a portable TIG DC only machine and I want to get something that will do aluminum as well as steel. I would be willing to spend in the $2000 to $2500 range or more if necessary. The unit will be shop bound. Some of the people seem to push Miller and some Lincoln but the people say that the amperage is misleading because of the low duty cycle. I do mostly lighter things but it is nice to be able to weld heavier stuff occasionally.

    Thanks,

    You will be more than pleased with the Thermal Arc Arcmaster 200 AC/DC.
    I use pulsing with a lot of my DC TIG jobs and find the TA products to be real workhorses. With a 5 year warranty and 5 "saved program" slots, I don't think you can beat the value. Replace that piece of junk pressure regulator supplied with a Smith Optimizer and the saved gas will pay for the powersource in less than 2 years. Good Luck no matter what brand you end up buying.

    Regards, Stillwelding

    Look at duty cycles, and purchase accordingly.

    Those guys can come back and chime in...My .02 is whose going to give me the better service, availability of parts, etc. I just happen to buy blue, 'cause they give me the best service, I love their machines, and they open 7 days a week (most days till 5pm, while red closes at 4pm and only open M-F)
