best all around tig welder

i was wondering what your opinion was on the best all around tig welder for the money. my typical applications would be 3/8 or less metal thickness on aluminum and carbon steel.


for the money? if you have adequate power (100 amp service) a used miller syncrowave 250 is still one of the best all round tig welders.

if you dont have that much power you might only be able wire a 30 amp plug.

I have an everlast powertig 250ex that cost less than a used syncrowave 250 that has done me a good job for the last year or so.

I cant full endorse them,, but for the money, its a good machine.

the only issue is when they break, it might take a while to get it fixed.
