For the past few months ive been saving up towards a brand new dynasty 200DX water-cooled with all the running gear. I've always heard great things about inverter tigs but any tips or suggestions? I currently have a maxstar 140 with manual gas valve and no foot pedal DC only.

On a seperate note I have been fairly dissapointed with the appearance of my welds on stainless. I dont have a problem making a consistent size bead but instead they turn a darker color and have a rough texture. I have seen plenty of hand-TIG'd things that look amazing but it just seems i cant get it down.

Im sure that others have experienced the same thing and il see if i can post some pictures later
