its a good start....as far as I know, they've had 2 different units, a $200 and a $600 one with high frequency unit. neither has a pedal. I've owned both.if you 're just learning, go for the higher one with the digital readout....mine went about3-4 years and I built several bikes with both of them, before I found my present Lincoln tig.

that being said I found my current Lincoln 185 tig with pedal off cl for $650. it'll do anything I need motorcycle wise ever. so other deals are out there if you can find them.

the hf units are decent for learning. but I would get the best unit you can afford. IF I ever upgrade, it'll be a miller. but that's a long way away.

They did a write up in The horse comparing Hobo Freight to Miller and one other . They claim the Hobo Freight wasn't to bad

Nothing, is too bad, if you get lucky and don't over work those little guys.
