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.
