There used to be a guy on here that was dealing Everlasts. He was quite helpful at first but seems to have gone off to bigger and better things...

I had a HF manager give me the skizzy on their new offerings. Quite excited he was... Apparently they pilfered a manager/engineer from one of the "big" brands to help them create the Vulcan series. I think they are made in India.

I'm not really in the market but the last time I was in HF I perused the offerings both Vulcan and Titanium. There were good deals for multi-machines (MIG and DC TIG) and AC/DC TIG/stick. I think a 200A AC/DC TIG was about a grand and a multi-machine $700ish--I don't quite recall the exact pricing. And if you could use a 20% off coupon the deal would be even sweeter! $800 for an AC/DC TIG (with foot pedal and 17 torch) is a great deal, IMO.

To put it into perspective, my TA 185 AC/DC TIG was $1800 introductory-priced about 10 years ago. Made in Japan. They soon went up to $2100ish considering the comparable Miller Dynasty 200 was $2600ish. The TA is still going strong, not a lick of trouble with it...

Hobart (Miller) 625 plasma
Hobart 250ci plasma
Victor O/A (always ready, but bored)
Lincoln Patriot autodark (freebie)
45ACP Black Talons for those stubborn jobs...
