    Partial newbie here

    Hello everyone. I guess first off, I'm a hobbyist here. I've been doing flux core and MIG welding off and on for about 24 years maybe. In the last 5 years or so, I started taking more interest in metalwork, and ended up setting up a decent hobby sized machine shop in my garage. I'm getting to where I want to be able to weld aluminum, so I'm planning on getting a TIG welder. Likely an inverter based machine with the fancy wave forms and such. I know I could go cheaper without, but I've played the game before of starting with entry level equipment, and then needing to upgrade. It just seems that you're spending a lot more buying two sets of equipment, so why not just get something good the first time? Oh, and I work as an industrial mechanic/tech for automated plastic injection equipment.

    Cheers!
