Once the tax refund check hit.... I bought a tig welder. No it's not a AHP, because it's 6 months out on shipping via Amazon, it's a weldpro instead, still from Amazon for $930 including Michigan sales tax and free shipping.

Added a hammer store welding cart that's too small for it, will upgrade soon to a larger platform cart. Argon tank is too small, but after 3 trips to the local airgas store, I took a smaller tank with "free gas" in it, still $300 later.

Now, to get to welding together my box of chrome moly drops from Moore Race Chassis.....

Does chomoly weld any differently than mild steel? Stainless? More heat needed or the same?

No to mild. Still typically 1 amp per 0.001 pre tube thickness.
