    Are you thinking about the Maxstar 150 STH? Wanting to do thin wall chrome moly tubing the pulse option would really be nice!

    Yes, I am looking at the STH version. Would the 150 also be able to handle the 1/4" thick implement repair?

    From what I have seen of your welding.... that is like the Archbishop saying he is not much of a Catholic.

    According to the specs it should easily, 150-amps on 230-volt incoming power.
    Don't hold me to this, but seems as I've read a lot of complaints about the Maxstar not being able to run 6010. May not be an issue for you though.

    Correct, like many of the inverter machines the Maxstar150 does not run 6010. 6011 works fine.

    why don't you look at a everlast 140st.it will run 1/8 6011 or 3/32 7018.which is plenty for thick steel.it also comes with a scratch start tig torch.it is less than 300 dollars.all you need is some longer leads and a argon bottle.

    I have a call into Mark @ Everlast to see what they have to offer that suits my needs. My primary use will be as a TIG machine, not stick, so that is my priority. At the moment my stick skills are basically non-existent, actually terrible might best describe them. I appreciate all inputs and comments, $300+ for an Everlast that will work for me is certainly more tempting than a $1800 Miller. Especially since it will be used part time in a hobby, not for making money.

    Hmmm, 6010, 6011, 7018, I think I got some more research to do as I have no clue what these are used for.
