    About Eastwood TIG Welder 200 Amp AC/DC

    Eastwood TIG200 200AMP welder features an AC/DC switch that allows both steels and aluminum to be welded with the same machine. With a 14' torch and a 10' ground cable, you'll be able to get into any space with this exceptional welding machine. It has pre- and post-flow adjustment knobs to protect your weld and torch. It even has a foot pedal to control amperage so you can get going quickly, without the need to dial-in the machine for a specific material. Powered through a NEMA50 plug.

    Automatically switches from 110v to 220v depending on input. Infinitely adjustable foot pedal and amperage control allow accurate aluminum welding, and adjustable pre- and post-gas flow results in proper arc starting, stabilization and bead cool-down. Thumb control overrides the foot pedal for out-of-position welding, or when bench welding is not an option. This exceptional Eastwood TIG Welder is backed by Eastwood's no-hassle 3-year warranty. Try it for 30 days, and if you're not satisfied, simply return it.

    I OWN A SMALL MOTORCYCLE SHOP AND HAVE PUT THIS MACHINE THROUGH ITS PACES ON 110 AND 220 FROM ALUMINUM, STAINLESS, SHEET, THICK WALL TUBING, AND IT PERFORMS GREAT IT HAS NOT LET ME DOWN ONCE PAY NO ATTENTION TO ZIP TIES ON THE THUMB CONTROL IT MAKES IT EASY FOR REMOVAL AND REINSTALLING I ONLY USED IT ONCE FOR A ROLL CAGE OTHER THAN THAT IT'S IN A TOOL BOX. IF YOU ARE A BEGINNER ONE OF THE BIGGEST THINGS WHEN TIG WELDING IS HAVE YOUR BODY IN A COMFTORABLE POSITION I STRESS THIS TO PEOPLE ALL THE TIME THE PEDAL FOR THE TIG IS A NOT AS INDUSTRIAL AS I WOULD HOPE BUT IT DOES THE JOB VERY WELL AND EASTWOODS CUSTOMER SERVICE IS GREAT DO NOT HESITATE BUY IT BUY IT BUY IT

    I did quite a bit of shopping before settling in on the Eastwood tig welder. Boy am I glad I made the decision I did. The welder is perfect for what I am doing and priced right. Shipping was fast and the quality of the product is outstanding. I was welding within minutes of unpackaging the unit. I am looking forward to purchasing other Eastwood products.
    Awesome Deal! TIG is the BEST! (Posted on 12/10/11)

    Those of you who always wanted a TIG but were afraid it would be too hard or too expensive... this is your chance! Im a hobby welder with years of MIG experience. Once you TIG you will NEVER use your MIG again! Just welded some 3/16 mild to 1/4 mild and it looks like a C.A.D welder did it!

    Nervous about purchasing a Chinese tig. But hey decent reviews. Ordered one and it was dead on arrival. Eastwood was great about the return. No hassle, just had UPS pick it up.
    Decide to step up to American made and bought a Lincoln 225 tig for 2250.00. Big price difference.
    Good for the price (Posted on 12/7/11)

    Consider this an entry level Tig welder, it's not a Miller or a Lincoln, but then again it does not cost as much.

    Good results for a reasonable price. This is an excellent hobbiest welder and does what it should.
    Great welder!! (Posted on 11/30/11)

    I LOVE THIS WELDER! It came 3 days after purchasing, Well packed. I have never tig welded but always wanted to. Easy to setup, straightforward controls. Get a book on welding if you have questions. I had a puddle going the first time I turned it on. Going to spend the next month practicing until I'm doing it in my sleep.

    This is a follow up to an earlier review. I did receive my new welder and since then I've been welding like crazy. I just want to make sure everything is ok in those first 30 days. After a little tweeking of the coating on the foot pedal that wasn't allowing the welder to shut off I was in business. I had the welder cranked up today nearly to the max and I was welding passes across a piece of 1/4 in. aluminum. I would say it had plenty of heat, and I finally had to take a break when it got too hot to keep my hands around. I'm happy with it so far.

    After a while of searching and looking all over the web I decided to pull the trigger and purchase the Tig 200 welder. I got it from Fed Ex in 3 days and was thrilled about that, but so far that ends the excitement.

    I got the welder out of its excellent packing and plugged it into my 110 outlet. I pushed the foot pedal just to see what happens (since never having tig welded) and it immediately overloaded. After having a 30amp 220 plug put in. I plugged the welder in and it immediately overloaded when I turned the welder on.

    I called customer support and like other reviews say it is excellent. They called back quickly after I talked to tech support and got me set up to send it back. They are sending me another welder once they get the defective one back. I sure hope it works well since I can't afford a Miller or Lincoln.

    Never having tig welded before, I knew I was in for a learning curve, especially since my only formal training previously was in high school many, many years ago. I have been welding with an oxy torch, so I had the coordination thing down, and have also done minimal welding with a mig. Overall, learning to weld steel was pretty easy, aluminum, a bit more of a touch is required, but hey, whats a few cyliners of argon worth anyhow??!!

    I recieved my welder in mid August and everything was in the box and well packed. Being a novice welder, but a few negative things came up during my first 2 1/2 months of operating this welder:

    The foot pedal really needs to wired using one thicker cable instead of two small diameter wires. It seems I am always getting my chair wheels caught on the wires! the circuit/breaker - on/off switch should be moved to the front. Since all of the controls are in the front why not the on - off switch? The manual is a little bit better than the chineselish manuals put out by Harbor Freight, but there is so much more information missing that should be included. I think a better trouble-shooting guide would help, plus I agree with other reviewers and their comments about the manual. An optional torch with an adjustable current control would be great!! Being tied down to a foot switch while lying on your back is pretty awkward at best!!

    Overall, I am pleased with this welder and would recommend this to anyone who is on a budget! I would not have been able to buy a new TIG welder by any of the major manufacturers, and in fact haven't found a used AC/DC tig welder from Lincoln or Miller for anything less than about $1700! I attached a photo of my aluminum welding cart project complete with a 125 cf argon cylinder.
