Any advise on buying a tig? Want AC/DC just so I can tinker with aluminum but home shop use. And having a hard time walking and chewing gum...assume working 2 hands and one foot at once will be a challenge. But just won't show off the first few welds.

I see digital and analog air and water cooled and other terms I have no idea about. Basically for someone with zero tig knowledge, what's a good starting point. I "think" digital is easier for a newbie and water cooled only if one is going to go after big butt tig welds. Average home use air is OK. But not sure.

Price range is dependent on feedback but ideal would be the 1000 to 2000 range. But if its really higher to get something that fits the bill let me know.

Miller equipment is a focal point. Open to other options.
