After a few years of having a machine such as this you will end up very close to your amt of $1,000. I started out for mild steel and have now ended up with two for Al, two for s/s, a few for gun work(one suggested) and bought as a group from/with Walker, etc etc.

I have bought in 3/32, but for 99% of what I do, 1/16 is the go to. I shy away from the thick work with TIG as I can use the spool gun or the MIGs for what my TIG won't cover.
