Default Good budget tig welder

Can anyone recommend a good budget tig welder for stainless steel? I won't be using it a lot so I don't see a need to spend thousands on one.

Eastwood has a low cost Tig and usually sells quality stuff.

Weldingtipsandtricks.Com has a bunch of videos. They ran a comparison between the Eastwood Tig and I think the miller. It reviewed pretty well. I have a Lincoln square wave that's about 20 years old that's never given me any issue. It was about $1200 new.

I have an Eastwood and it's great. Go ahead and get the AC/DC one in case you want to weld aluminum

I have the Eastwood Tig200 as well. It lacks fancy features, but is also quite reasonably priced. I have welded steel, stainless, and aluminum. Never done it before and had decent results.

I have a AHP 200x and a Miller Dynasty 210. For the money the AHP can't be beat. My only complaint is the pedal is a little whack, but luckily almost all of those accessories are interchangeable so I just use my Miller pedal on both.
Buy the AHP and an amazon special gas lens kit and you'll be ready to go.
