My engine drive is even a AC/DC multi-process unit.
You lucky dog. My buddy has a small Miller TIG multi-provcess machine that he paid $2K for new. Air cooled, runs on 120 or 240 V single phase. Pretty nice machine. About powder coating. That also builds up a thickness. You'd have to make allowances for that. But you can do it yourself with a $80 kit, and a discarded kitchen oven. Single process TIG machines - never seen one. They're not that common. I think most places that have a need for TIG want to be able to weld all 3. Did you know you can weld copper, too? And titanium? (I have never tried Ti, for lack of stock, but would love to.)
