Default TIG set up for my Miller AEAD 200LE?

I have two aead 200 le welders that run great. I really need a TIG set up that will operate off the welder. I would like to be able to weld aluminum and stainless. I really want to make sure that what I buy is compatible with the welder. Any and all suggestions will be appreciated. Part #'s, web sites, personal experience, anything and everything Please.

Thank you

well, first you can get an air cooled tig torch on ebay or go to millerwelds.com, to weld alumium you will need a high frequency box, also available on ebay or millerwelds.com, problem is there is no way to control amperage like with a foot pedal or thumb wheel on the torch cuz nothing plugs into the old 200le. you may want to sell your 200le and upgrade to a bobcat which you can plug tig attachments into no problem.

I would go with a water cooled torch set up for aluminum if it's going to be used for any lengthy time or heavy applications, if it's just smaller stiches air cooled is fine,
