Had an EconoTIG, sold it for some quick cash I ended up not needing. Wish I never sold it. For a hobbyist, its a good deal. To replace it got an old Dayton arc weld with HF adapter, and thinking its just getting tiresome, might need to get another, but might go for the Hobart equivalent of the EconoTIG - they're basically the same.

didnt miller buy hobart??? so in essence it would be just a more affordable version of the miller built by miller??? if I am correct on the buy out.

Nah,
I have a Miller SD 180 and it's bad ass you can create anything with This TIG. I am still trying to perfect my skills but you see will this is the way to go, check out metal shapers.com they have a welding forum.

I live in Appleton. (the Home of miller) and own a couple blue welders , but my next welder will be red (lincoln)...... don't buy a tig under 180 unless you are not going to weld aluminum period............ LUKESTER

I am bout to drop some cash on a Henrob torch. Im sure a few guys have used em. I know they arent as perfect as they sound, but it sounds like a cost efective way to make welds that dont need to be grinded.

Re: Henrob

I've got a Henrob sitting on the shelf that I'll deliver for $300. (CONUS)
if anyone's interested.

Chuck, Up and Running !!!

Don't use it - trying to buy a new lathe.
