If you want to spend a lot of money go with an inverter, otherwise I don't think you can go wrong with the value of a lincoln precision tig 225.

See if you can find you an older Miller Syncrowave 250 or equivalent, Lincoln Ideal arc... I picked one up Syncrowave 250 for $800 a few years back.. No complaints here....

X2!!!!!

I picked up an older miller 335 ad/bp commercial welder for 600.00
It's not the most efficient thing. lol But it is a beast! Very consistant, and super reliable. Tho the electric bill does reflect on useage....;)

I don't see that one welding an aluminum head. Not enough amperage. It would do great on tubing though.
You would be surprised what that machine can do with 200 amps and the right gas.I have it and haven't had a problem welding blocks,trans cases,intakes or heads.
