Horror fright has the titanium dc welder for about $249 right now and a Tig torch with gas valve knob should not be too expensive to keep him under $500 I would think.
He wants to do a little bit of all metals...He's single, has money and I get to use the toys too...

I have had a Lincoln tomb stone AC welder for many years. Always thought about getting a HF unit and mod it...
