Virtually no one offers a tig "250" that has a reflective linear price in scale.
Goes from 700 for a 200-210 model to over a grand for the no name entry level 250's.
if the one you have falls about or lower in price that you snagged it for, I think I'll have to cop your style.

was looking at the Everlast-POWERTIG 225. Priced just over 1300 (limted sale price) and has the umph for 1/4+. If there are any other competitors that come in for less dough and is same or better clams, I might consider it.

Everlast has been used quite a bit on www.WeldingTipsandTricks.com so it's not a bad welder by any means... It will probably be the next TIG I get if I ever feel I need more options over this Eastwood.

Most welders are dual voltage compatible, would be nice to find a 220+ volt only unit. It might save a few hundred... To then be spent on more add on items lol.
