I have a cheap chinese inverter. 200 a ac/dc. I have a couple air cooled torches, the one I use most is a 9. I am a total beginner with welding so I just do what feels right and I get a lot of good advice from my local welding supply.

The welder I got off the pirate 4x4 site for $ 350. I figured it was good to try and then drop some coin on a lincoln or miller. I have to say I have been impressed with what I can do with it. To get a basic inverter machine now is $ 3000. Until this thing dies I'm loving it. I also got a bigger tank, 150 cf. My buddy that works at the shop gets me stuff for nothing. I think he charged me $ 10 to fill it today.
