    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 bought this welder about a year ago and absolutley love it! Excellent on sheet metal and 3/16" plate as I've only ran it on the 110v plug. Great control with aluminum using the foot pedal. I weld tube cages, off road accesories and parts as well as fabricate custom rods and choppers and metal fabrication in general.
    For the price, you can't beat it. Aside from having a 3 yr. warranty, the welder is less expensive than it's Miller and Lincoln counterparts, and it works just as good if not better. If you make the purchase, you won't be disappointed

    I purchased this TIG welder in August but didn't get a chance to use it until November. When I first used it, I got a "Overload" light right when I pressed the foot pedal, which turned out to be a bad unit. There was some rattling noise inside (sounded like a loose screw). First, I must say, Eastwood's customer service is excellent! When I called customer service, they transferred me over to a technician to diagnose the problem. The tech was not there but I left a number and they called back and the tech said that it was part of a bad batch and they would exchange it for another one. So taking the chance and knowing that I cannot get another TIG welder at this price, I left the unit in a box and FedEX came to pick it up. The customer service e-mailed me and even mailed me to notify of the status. A month later (after a backorder), the new unit arrived. I plugged it in and voila, it works great! I still need more practice, but this unit does the job! This is the best bang for the buck TIG welder out there!

    I NEVER THOUGHT I COULD JUSTIFY THE PURCHASE OF A TIG WELDER UNTIL THIS UNIT CAME ALONG. WHEN I FIRST SET UP THE UNIT I HAD NO GAS FLOW FROM THE TORCH, I CALLED EASTWOOD ,DESCRIBED THE PROBLEM AND THEY HAD A COMPLETE NEW TORCH TO ME IN A COUPLE OF DAYS. THATS CUSTOMER SERVICE. I'VE BEEN USEING THE MACHINE FOR ABOUT EIGHT MONTHS WITH NO PROBLEMS. IT DOESN'T HAVE ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES OF BIG BLUE BUT ITS A GREAT MACHINE FOR THE MONEY. I JUST WISH I WOULD HAVE HELD OFF UNTIL THE SALE OF THE WELDER AND PLASMA CUTTER.

    I weld for a living but I dont have a ton of money to put into a tig machine. I think with this machine I will be able to make more money on the part time side. It keeps up with out a problem to any torch I've ever used before. At 45% D/C at 150 amps wich by the way I dont use until I get to 9/16" thick steel and "Joey Home Owner" will never use at this level of welding, its perfect for the week end welder/body guy. Perfect price, perfect size, perfect strenth. good job Eastwood, I'll be looking at buying more from you in the future.
    Disappointed w machine, but Customer Service is excellent! (Posted on 12/29/11)

    I was so thrilled when I found that Eastwood had this dual voltage TIG machine and that it could do AC for aluminum and had Squarewave technology. Unfortunately, the very first time I started the machine, sparks shot out of the front vent cover. This is an inverter welding unit, so any kind of electrical issue is a huge problem because of the sensitive components inside the machine.

    I contacted Customer Service, who had me talk to the Technical folks first (company policy), who, in-turn, immediately said it has to be replaced. About an hour later, Customer Service called me back and asked me to repack the machine and let me know that Fedex would pick it up from my house the next day.

    I am bummed about the machine and decided not to replace it, but just get a refund. Eastwood is a great company and they are top notch for customer service. I've been ordering from them for over 24 years. Hopefully, they can work with their supplier to hash out the bugs with this machine, because a cost-effective unit like this has a lot of potential for a home shop.

    I use a Synchrowave 300 at the shop so I picked this up for home & garage use. It's a great unit. I am however having issues with it. It worked pretty decent for about 2 weeks. Every now and again I would have a problem where the HF arc would strike, but even with the machine running full bore on a 220 amp service, at 200 amps off either the foot pedal or the thumb control it wouldn't put out enough amperage to even discolor 22 gauge. I don't know if it's a problem with the board or what, because it would start doing on the same piece I was welding on a few minutes prior without changing anything... then I'd have to fiddle with the connections, still get nothing and out of nowhere it would strike an actual arc again. I'm an AWS certified welder, and I love the fact they brought a *great* affordable TIG to the masses. When it works, it works *great*. I used it to weld mild steel, chromoly and aluminium with great success. I'm just disheartened at the problems the unit is having so we shall see how they handle it. If they get the QC on these figured out, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to everybody I know, as it really is a great piece, when it works.

    Everything was packed great, shipped on time, the only problem is the same as the guy above with the foot pedal. It continues to have power when you let off the pedal. But it was an easy fix. I am very happy with my purchase, and it was half the price of the other guys

    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.
