    Hi guys
    Been looking for a while now at tig which is new to me.
    I have a budget of 600 for machine, have a decent mask now and argon isn't an issue.
    So what machines should I be looking at, want it for dc as ac is way out of budget right now and the chances of me needing to weld ally are slim and not practical cost wise.
    Been looking at
    Jasic
    Rtec
    Parweld
    So open to suggestions or what should I look for if going 2nd hand?

    I like the Jasics bud. I've got several AC/DC ones but can't comment on the DC only versions. I'm not a fan of R tech as they don't seem to last. Parweld are half decent for the money. For £600 and just looking for DC only you could get a better make. Check out the ESAB Buddy.

    Jasic 200 dv-pulse is a fantastic machine, it's where my money would go - but be aware it doesn't support a foot pedal as it only has a 2 pin connector - not that you need a pedal for DC work.

    5 year on all the models but you must have the machine serviced every year at a jasic dealer to maintain warranty status.

    I'd have two on my list at this budget.

    GYS TIG 168 DC
    Jasic TIG 200 Pulse Dual Voltage

    Both brilliant sets.

    I have a 200 AC/DC Stahlwerk a year now. Do not rule them out.
