    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 got this welder as a gift from my wife's family. First time I used the torch trigger stopped working. I called about getting it fixed and they couldn't figure out whos name it was under so no warranty. The next time I used the welder stopped working all together. I was extremely excited about getting a TIG but this machine is JUNK! My wife feels bad about it and is not happy about the product support!

    Bought the TIG 200 along with a plasma cutter to use in our workshop at a non-profit where I volunteer. Arrived quickly, set up was easy and we were off to the races, The unit is used sporadically to build prototype equipment. A month later the unit failed, the inverter went out. Eastwood sent a replacement as soon as the defective unit was picked up. Two months later the replacement unit failed, different problem - this time with the control electronics. This time the replacement unit did not ship, as promised, when the defective unit was picked up. It did not ship the next day, as promised. Very difficult to get tech support in a timely manner. Very concerned that either the basic design of the unit is at fault or the quality control during the parts procurement or build process is bad.

    I've owned this machine for a couple of years, doing small jobs w/ stainless steel tubing on my boat. It's has been surprisingly robust w/ decent results. I'm an amateur w/ welding but my Bro-in-law is a professional sheet metal worker & though he hated to admit it, he was impressed w/ the weld quality of the TIG 200. Recently I had to pack up the welder, argon tank, tungsten grinder, and all the paraphernalia to do a job on my boat- weld up a hard dodger I'm making. I fired the machine up, pushed the foot pedal & POP! the thing blew a capacitor. This is where the Eastwood company excels: called em up, explained everything & they told me to box it up leave it in the driveway & someone would come by to pick it up. Sure enough, off it went, & couple weeks later a brand new one arrived. It did break w/in the warranty period, but the ease of the return can't be beat. If this thing lasts long enough to finish this project, I'll feel I've gotten my moneys worth. Though some of Eastwood's products are not of the highest quality, they sure are a good company to deal with. I am a loyal customer.

    Greater welding machine didn't realize it came with so much. The cheap regulator is my only complaint broke the second day. Welds aluminum pretty well.

    I really like this welder have about 12-14 hours on it so far. The pedal is the only thing that could use a slight design change. It is very smooth but the geometry takes some getting us to. On higher dollar machines you set your entire foot on the the pedal not just you toe like this machine. I will make up a block to change the angle of the pedal to my foot. I would recommend this machine it welds beautifully.

    The first unit was replaced after the overload light came on after 3 hours of use. Replacement took 2+ weeks. The second unit would not work at all. There was a problem with the air regulation. I would not recommend this product at all. I was excited about some of the features, but if it is that unreliable, there is no value in owning it. I ended up finding a used Miller Syncrowave 180 with cart for $900. It has been performing reliably.

    I have nothing bad to say about the welder, just the company. The welder works as it should. I paid $849.00 for the welder and a week later they sent me an email and said that it was on sale for $699.99. I called the company and they said that they could not do anything about it that I could send the welder back, pay return shipping and buy another one at the sale price. That`s bad business.
    Seems like a good compromise, time will tell though. (Posted on 3/23/14)

    Like many I am a hobby restorer, so it was tough to justify the big money for even the smaller big name TIG machines, but I wasn't sure about the reliability of some of the new import companies. The Eastwood unit seemed a decent compromise: cheaper than the blue/red/white boxes for the size and features, but from a more reliable source for support than some of the import companies using the same or similar boxes. Plus if I do need support Eastwood is only a few hours away so shipping costs are lower.
    Item arrived very fast, and shipping on it was very reasonable. It was well packaged and arrived safely (another benefit of the close distance). Ironically the consumables kit came the next day but there are enough materials with the welder to get started if you have the gas bottle.
    I've used it for a few hours just practicing, and for a small job so far and it works well. I don't have a lot of experience to compare this against more professional machines, but to this point the biggest problem with the machine is the person operating it.
    Time will tell if it holds up and how well it will do the various jobs I need to throw at it, but for a DIY/home setup on smaller jobs it seems like a good compromise against the other options.
