So for anyone intrested in buying a TIG i can honestly say this little machine is amazing... Ive been using all diffrent shapes and sizes for years and this thing performs just as well as machines priced 3 times as much.. its a 230v 165 amp AC/DC tig. Ive got a few projects im working on so ill post up some pics eventually... im going to be fabing up a set of aluminum IC tubes for my cummins conversion soon too.

most likely you won't need anything to cut over 1/4" plate.

so either a Miller Spectrum 375 or a Spectrum 375 X-TREME

thanks for the recomendations tank. was thinking about looking at them and after a lil research pulled the trigger on the 375 x-treme. 907339 is part number for the old version going out and is actually a lil more $ than the newer 907303. as plasma cutters have been dropping in price considerably over the last couple years, the new version is a couple bucks cheaper. cant wait to try it out.:D

I run a Miller Dynasty 200DX for TIG and stick, I have a Linde (sold as ESAB these days) V-160 MIG, and a Hypertherm Powermax 600 plasma cutter. I really want a Miller 250 MIG with a push/pull or a spool gun some day for my aluminum projects.

I also have an ancient Miller Dial-Arc 250 with TIG, but it's a beast to use because it doesn't have the ability to use a foot pedal. It pretty much an antique but I learned to weld on it, so I can't brin myself to part with it.

I just put a bunch of my equipment to work this weekend building a 5" stack system for my truck. You sure can't do the cool projects if you don't have the right tools (or skills)!

Thermal Dynamics Cutmaster 52 here. Lincoln 175 Home Depot mig. Buddy has a syncrowave 180 TIG. I want to get a water cooled one cause that thing gets warm...

Have the same Thermal Dynamics plasma works really well but seems to eat thru tips fast, have a Miller 251 wirefeed with a spool gun works awesome cant beat a Miller. And a Thermal Dynamic 185ST tig. The tig works good for aluminum up to 1/4 then after that you have to preheat or use the wirefeed. You are right about need a water cooler for the tig. I built a 125 gallon fuel tank out of .090 aluminuim had about 30ft of welding to do and man did that tourch gets hot. We have a 375 lincoln tig at work and I have found a few used one but they still want 3 grand for them. I need a tub bender before a new tig.
