Maybe I've missed something mentioned before, but when I look on eBay there seem to be lots of plasma cutters for about $200 and up. I'm not saying that's the one to get, but there do seem to be plenty of cheap options.

According to several folks, here, and several forums, you really want one that has a pilot arc, or it will fustrate you forever.

I think that's wise.
I've used a couple of TIG's without HF start and they're a PITA for a novice user. Why make it hard when advanced technology is available.
