I lucked out a little over a year ago and bought a Miller Synchrowave 250 used for $1400 and got the 300 size argon tank with it. Also has "thumbwheel" remote. This is a "Cadillac" of welders for work on aluminum. Shop around. Oh yeah, priced a new synchrowave 250 just this morning for my employer, $5000 through Airgas.

A Syncrowave 250 is a very good machine but far from the Cadillac of TIG welders. The Miller rep here doesn't know why they even make the Syncrowaves anymore when you can get a Dynasty that is a bid step above of a Syncrowave. Ask Puddles he has an earlier Dynasty 300 and the new 350's are even better. Some people still like a conventional TIG machine though. I think the Dynasty's are descendents of the Aerowave that was only on the market for a short time. Apparently it was designed for Boeing but the new Dynasty's come real close. Miller even makes a Dynasty 700 if you want to TIG weld 1" thick aluminum. Had a customer buy one a couple month's ago with water cooler and all the bells and whistles. It was around 16 or $17,000 if I remember right. A big feature of an inverter is that they use a fraction of the power a transformer/rectifier uses.
