Right, that Everlast 256Si, AC/DC TIG/Stick/Plasma has a lot of functionality and value.
My first TIG unit was a generic, DC-only, TIG/Stick/Plasma unit that was great. But a couple of years ago I upgraded to an AC/DC unit so I could do aluminum TIG too.
250 amp units are pretty high output for a beginner. I mean, there is the 205S unit too, which is marked down right now from $1719 to $1350, on Amazon, with free shipping. Of course, buyer feedback from Amazon customers is quite good on it.https://www.amazon.com/Everlast-PowerPr ... erlast+205
