    I would like to start doing some TIG work and would like some guidance for purchasing a welder. I have a hobart 135 MIG right now that has served me well but would like to upgrade if the price is right. Here is what im looking for:
    1. a/c and d/c TIG (want to do some aluminium work
    2. Multi process, MIG capable
    3. Dont break the bank $1500?

    Is it better to have seperate welders or a multi process? Pro/con Thanks!

    Most Multi process welders are only going to have DC tig which would not get you Alum. However if you find a package deal on one it might include a spool gun that can be used for Alum. I am a big fan on the Esab rebel. A good Multi-processor is going to be pushing your budget and then some.
