I found this little TIG welder at Kraze Arc

PO Box 354549
Palm Coast, Florida
904-447-1206

Attn: Kraze Korlacki

Did a comparison with Sears

Co./Output/Duty Cycle/Input/Weight/Cost/Control
Sears 150AC/DC 25% 230v 185# $1,519.99 Transformer
Kraze 130AC 80% 120v 13# $ 800.00 Computer

Both come with necessary supplies.

Kraze is lighter, has a high duty cycle is cheaper and runs from a 120v wall outlet and is computer controlled. Seems like the Z06 of TIG welders.

Two names: Miller or Lincoln.
I'd have to agree. All the other stuff i've seen has been "toy" grade. 110-120V just doesn't carry the kind of load you might want.

I'm still pissed at my dad for selling his old Miller 250amp heli-arc. At least he bought a Miller 250amp MIG to replace it.

I have the Lincoln Square Wave Tig 175 Pro (and a Lincoln MIG as well). It was $1700 with the Argon bottle from a local welding shop. It is AC/DC and can do regular stick electrodes (good for working of trailers, etc) as well. The square wave feature is very nice on aluminum welding, it acts like a quarter car wash and cleans the oxides off the aluminum as you weld. Don't waste your money on anything less, you will outgrow it soon and just end up selling it and getting a real one. Hardly anything on a car can be done with a 110V welder outside of small brackets etc. See:
