    I bought the Lincoln 180 with the aluminum spoolgun used for $500 with pretty much every consumable and PPE. I've been really happy with it. I do wish I had a TIG tho, the spoolgun works but it's not pretty.

    If you want to watch some vids, look up aVe channel on YouTube. He pulls electronics apart for reviews.

    I've determined I'd like to get a new unused unit. I think they're 800 without the spool locally.

    Well I could either go with the offshore brand or maybe not be able to afford the US brand in my life time. I went with the AlphaTIG.

    This is the 2018 model, so it has a lot of changes from the original. It seems to be really nice.

    If you ordered thru there distributor, you might be able to net some cost back since there site sells direct for less. The AlphaTIG 201XD is 750.00 shipped direct.

    I got a good deal. I just added 4 years of warranty to it.

    Seeing how the manufacturer automatically covers the unit for three years from date of purchased with the exception of the secondary components, which are covered for six months from date of purchased, adding any additional coverage seemed unnecessary. After reading various reviews, the trend in failure typically are immediately identified & determined defective. I don't foresee the AHP unit being a huge hot pile of poop. lol

    I just figured I would be safe. I read and watched some of the reviews and there were some concerns on the torch, pedal and hoses. This one being the 2018 version seems to have corrected a lot of those concerns. The parts appear to be more robust than what I saw on YouTube. I’m happy with it.

    Congratulations!!
    I used to be 'with it'. Then they changed what 'it' was. Now what I'm 'with' isn't 'it', and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me.......
