after i built my truck, put the crane on it, bolted down the big blue air pak, and all the rest of the junkto go along. then filling the truck and welder with fuel,i couldnt see spending $ 250 on the pedal!
Sooo, your not tig welding. Ok cool.
If I was a hobby welder and Purchased a hobby welder ( with no pedal) , I would spend the $250 on a pedal.
Too expensive, find a cheaper hobby.
