Here's a question I've been working on:

Would a hobbyist be better off going with Tig so he could weld anything or would a wire feed set up for steel & aluminum be better?

This popped up on CL today, I've seen it before too:

If the ad is gone here's the text:

175 AMP POWER SUPPLY 208/230 volt single phase, 2 owned 282cu ft tanks-one steel mix- the other argon mix (aluminum)
Has built in steel mig with 20' lead & gun, and 50' leads with spool gun. (lincoln) with aluminum wire (.030) 4043. 50 foot power cord.
selling because closed shop! works great ! $700.00 FIRM.

I don't have any set projects in store for it. I borrow a friend's Miller 135 wire feed when I need to do any welding but it's proven too light duty for some horse trailer repairs I've had to do.

I don't have any aluminum projects lined out but after seeing Kirkster's panniers I kind of want to make some
