But since he IS single (and young?), he could get a used Dynasty 200, then spend a little extra and get a water-cooled torch setup (#20). That setup will last the rest of his life... You might find one local in the $1500 range (or less).

Or spend a little more (or less) and get a new Diversion 180. Looks like a nice starter/all-around TIG. LINK Add $500-$600 for a water-cooled torch and cooler. The WC torch can be used with another TIG should he upgrade to a Dynasty 800...

PS: and he'll need at least a 125cf of Argon. Buy the tank, it is easier that way then just swap out or buy two tanks and drop the empty off to be filled.
