This thread mentions a tig setup at tigdepot. Anyone use that I90 STS setup? The vendor says they sell it to gunsmiths. The price is definitely right. Is it good enough for bolt handle welding, jigs, magwells, etc.?

I was a nuclear grade welder in the Navy, but I can't afford 1400 bucks for a SquareWave 175..... Out of practice, to be sure.


Edited as I can't figure out board code...

Pogo;

I may be preaching to the choir; as a welder you know that when it comes to welding, tig especially, the better the machine the better the results.
When welding 1911 frames the extra control you can achieve with the high end machines is worth the price. I have a 175 Square wave and also a V160 Invertec. The Invertec is far more
sensitive and adjustable for pulse / slope / & freq and does an "outstanding job" on delicate work.
The Invertec is DC only, so aluminum not an opion, but the 175 will do both, but doesn't have the superior control of the Invertec.
Lincoln makes a great product and offers super customer support. I graduated from their welding school in 1969 and have four Lincoln welders.
Good Luck

Jerry
