Default Looking to get a new welder?

I am in the market to buy a new tig welder and plasma cutter hopefully all in one unit so that I can do some mods to my bike and go kart.....I have spoken to some of the bigger companies like lincoln,miller,harbor freight and they are a little to expensive for me at the time so I was wondering if anyone had any advice on where to look for some affordable but reliable welding companies

Harbor freight seems out of place on that list I think.

LOL Harbor Freight isn't a welder as Mr Shamrock suggested.

Harbor Freight offers some awesome deals on welding and cutting equipment.

I would suggest figuring out what is the thickest material you are going to be welding and cutting. This will help you find out what size of machine you will need.
But if you spoke to Miller Corp and Lincoln Comp. already you probably already know. That would be the first question they would have asked you.

Do you own a wire feed already?

Default longevity weldall 256pi

I have purchased a unit from a company named longevity, it is actually a really good unit and it's covered by a 5 year warranty just to mention, they had great customer service and pretty good reviews so i'm posting some pics of my work so be sure to let me know what you think
