Eastwood tig 200 AC/DC -110-220 v welder
Well ---Hears the scoop-
PRO'S--unit arrived in 3 days undamaged- All accessories in packing were there-Took 20 minutes to hook up- comes with torch on off switch on torch head and set amps on unit or foot peddle with reostat amp control dial and foot peddle verable amp to what you set the reostat to. both worked awesome. Timed the pre flow and post flow settings -and they were spot on..-ran the unit on Aluminum sq tubing first 1/8 " wall at 130 amps A/C- with 100% tungston 3/32 dia. Run flaless with the torch switch-then tried the foot peddle set at 130 amps and verried the amperage with the peddle-AWESOME control. Next I switched tungston over to 2% and same dia.-useing the same collet in the torch head-switched the machine to DC -dialed it down to 80 amps and ran the S.S 18 ga. test pieces. Wow- beautfull control and a perfect bead.- This machine is every easy to use and is geared for automotive restoration. It cost $ 899.00 and 26.00 to ship-
The unit came with a hand held welding mask- Why I do not know -tig takes 2 hands-what is up with that??? the thing is a piece of crap -I have no use for it..- The foot peddle has 2 leads comeing out of it-one for amp control and the other for the on/off switch of the peddlel-These leads should have a sleeve over them like the way the torch leads have- - It will get one. - one of the 3 size collets for the standard wp17 torch head was 5/64 in size- thats a werdo- i will never use that collet- thats about it..
Got a argon B tank for 138.00 unit came with a nice reg.-had to buy tungston of coarse-and I also bought a gas lend for the wp17 standard torch -just because i know what I'm doing here-$18.00 . All and all for just a little over $1000.00 I am finally mobil -and can take my 110 Hobart hander mig or my Eastwood 110/220 any were and run it off my 6000 watt generator.-I will post pic's of the first project- aluminum tube welding cart the project name will be THE TOWER OF POWER -look for it and check out what this tig can do. 77
