      Hi Canoe

      We are close thats for sure, I found this link it has all the technical stuff on the 150 http://www.millerwelds.com/products/...xstar_150_stl/, It is a dc machine basically only used the Tig portion but I have tried and burned a few rods, till I decided i really didn't want the smell in my house,(garage attached) I'll only stick outside now, but the machine is as portable as it gets, and really works well better than anyother machine I've used, which isn't much, pro welder in Hamilton told me to use the Miller I trusted his advice and I am very happy, another sweet featue is 115/230 powersupply with no switching means you can tap in anywhere.

      **** now I sound like a salesman,

      get my stuff through BOC gases in waterloo they are great, always willing to answer my dumb questions, not being in the welding trade you always are asking dumb questions.

      Cheers
      Jim

        Hi: I am a hobby welder who would like to learn how to do TIG welding. Most of my limited experience is with aluminum welding using a MIG machine.Any tips on where to buy a used TIG unit ? I live in Ontario. Thanks .

          I would check the Tri-Ad newspaper. Sometimes local welding supply houses have trade-ins or know of equipment for sale. You may have a hard time locating a 220V single phase machine, as they seem to go quickly. What part of ON are you in?

            Thanks. I live in North Bay. I am not familiar with the Tri Add paper. Where do I find it?

              I think the Tri AD paper covers the southern ontario region. Maybe the Buy & sell? May have listings in the Sudbury & Barrie areas....Do you have a BOC Gasses, Air Liquide, Airgas or Praxair dealer in your neck of the woods?

                Thanks 2Fish: Yes , most of these welding supply companies have outlets here. I gather it is hard to find used TIG machines. Any help or leads will be appreciated. If anyone can give me an e-mail for the trade paper suggested I will contact them. Thanks again for the help.

                    Thanks ---redx; I posted an ad. Hope I get results. I would like to get started with TIG but don't want to put out the bucks for a new machine just for casual, hobby welding. Will let you know how I make out .
