    MILLER WELDING has a calculator that allows you to find the correct settings and components for tig and mig welding here posted below, but it you know of other links, calculators or reference charts PLEASE post them, as it will be useful.
    before anyone buys any welder , new or used,

    you should call and talk too both the manufactures reps, the TECH and sales and repair dept. guys,
    and find someone local thats owned and used one for at least several months,
    Ideally you'll want to get a local dealer to point out the welders strong vs weak points,
    and perhaps let you either try one out or point you to a local shop,
    that will be willing to let you try a few welds and show you how too use the welder for a few buck$
    slipping some guy $50 -$60 bucks for 20-30 minutes instruction on a similar machine,
    before you buy one,

    is going to be a great financial investmen
    t, and it could save you from making the wrong decision.
    if the TIG welder your looking at does not have AC/DC and pulse frequency, options,
    and rated at at least 180 amps, its not going to be ideal for welding aluminum.

    Ed and Me tabbed up 4.0 inch exhaust for a Ford Diesel last night Grumpy.
    Stainless steel.
    That China stainless is terrible.
