People come into my shop all the time and see me TIG welding aluminum and say. Boy I wish I could weld like that, Will you teach me? The first thing I ask them is do you know how to gas weld with a torch and a filler rod. No is the answer I get most of the time. I say learn to gas weld and then come back and I will show you the basics,but the rest is up to you. To be a good TIG welder you have to have a foot pedal control and good foot, both hands and eye coordination. I use TIG very little on steel. I use MIG or gas weld it. I TIG aluminum and Stainless. You really dont need anything but a TIG torch and a bottle of Argon and a regulator to hook to your DC straight polarity welder to Tig weld steel but you will have limited results due to the fact cheaper welders do not have infinite amperage controls. You need AC and HI frequency to have much success with aluminum. Any machine under 250 amps for aluminum is a Joke. Aluminum takes twice as much amperage to weld as steel, due to the rapid heat transfer. I have 2 Tig machines and can't say I'm happy with either one of them, but I can't justify 12 grand on a new one at my age.
