Moe, for someone who want to learn the basics, I don't think you can go wrong
with a HF machine. They seem to be decent machines. However, I would
suggest one that has AC and DC. AC so you can weld aluminum, 50% of my
TIG work is aluminum.

I would also look around and see if you can get a used Miller or Lincoln unit.
