    Thanks for sharing I have not looked into Harbor Freight's version of this type welder much. I might just try it. I kinda of cringe at the price of a good tig. I got a nice Lincoln mig but I would not mind a tig for some projects.

    ya man that works great for low budget. too bad you have to scratch start it and wreck and contaminate the tungston. once it sticks and you break it off there goes your nice sharp tip. def works great tho for under 250$
