I have a 200A TIG/Stick with all the bells and whistles (including a 50A plasma torch and pedal).
As long as I can get the He, I can even do aerospace Al alloys.
I will be getting scrap pieces of thin wall stainless tubing from a source so I can practice tacking for orbital.

Congratulations!

I see you, too, have a red head in your life. That seems to happen at a disproportionately high rate for welders... Maybe it's related to our tolerance for pain... ;) :lol:

A red-head involved in your education might be even worse, for the pain factor...
