I haven't received an Eastwood catalog for a while, but my impression of 
a lot of their stuff is that it's overpriced and often available for 
less from other vendors (although they do seem to have a lot of cool 
stuff I have never seen elsewhere, too).  My suggestion would be to go 
to your local industrial welding outlet and get a Miller, Lincoln or 
Hobart (depending on what color you like), and with that you'll also get 
access to the service and advice from the people that work there, which 
I doubt you'll be able to get from Eastwood.  You will probably also 
have an easier time getting parts from a name brand vendor, too.
