    If you want a decent 110 welder, this is pretty much your only choice.

    Needs to be portable and 110.

    Right now, I'm thinking mostly ornamental stuff -- stainless, copper, bronze, brass

    AC is commonly used on Magnesium, and thin sections of copper and copper alloys.

    On copper and copper alloys I have used AC but with my balance set in the very high 90's, so basically DC but with just a hint a cleaning. You can do that with the Dynasty 300, I do not know off the top of my head if that is possible with the D 200 and it is definitely not with a transformer machine.

But it's DC only. Aside from aluminum, are there any other metals I wouldn't be able to DC tig with the unit?

    You can weld aluminum on DC it is just alot harder. As a matter of fact heavy aluminum sections are often welded on DC.
