Here is a neat video on how you could do some crude tig welding with the AC-225 stick welder that you already have although you would need to either build or buy:

a) one of those cheater converters to DC (see em cheap on craigslist from time to time).

b) Air cooled tig torch $50 to $60 on ebay.

c) argon bottle and regulator (not real cheap).

FWIW: I spent the $50 for an ebay torch and did this myself since my Miller thunderbolt already put out DC and I already had an unused bottle and regulator for the cause. While it has been fun to play with; I can not say, I have truly needed it.

Remember this is crude tig welding. (copy and paste link into your browser if link does not work).

My sil bought this welder at a sale and it didn't have any leads or an end on the power cord. After rounding up some necessary parts I finally bought the copper lead wire and hooked it all up a while ago and it stick welds! It has other capabilities but they are costly, so I'm gonna see what he wants to do. I just welded with it about 1 hr ago. It's a maxstar 200/miller
