If you only have the occasional job, use O/A. If you have several jobs on thin material, get a MIG welder. If you had a DC welder, You could get set up to do basic TIG for a little over $200 including torch and flow meter, less the argon cylinder. A big difference between O/A and TIG is that with O/A you can easily move the flame away if it gets too hot. With TIG you have to keep close so you maintain an arc. You need a pretty good TIG machine to get a foot or hand amperage control and even then, it takes a lot of practice. You're using both hands and your foot trying to make them all work in unison. That's why GOOD TIG welders make the big bucks. Their finished weld is like a work of art.
