    Eastwood TIG Welder 200 Amp AC/DC

    Product Review (submitted on March 25, 2011):

    I 'm greatly impressed with how well this does sheet metal. Everyone else seems to be busy trying to repair boilers or armor plate or something and I've been looking for something to butt-weld 20 gauge patch panels with better control. I used it for the first time welding up some corners on a little sheet metal box and was very pleased with the results.
    The instructions tell you what you need to know to operate the machine and says right out that this takes practice and possibly the hands on instruction from someone who is experienced in this type of welding. An owner's manual is not usually a comprehensive guide to all aspects of a device's use, merely how to operate it.
    While this was my first time trying at TIG, I have been messing around with gas and MIG for years and found this machine to be just what I've been looking for in control. Since this is just for my hobby I was very pleased with the price and felt more confident in Eastwood as the supplier that will continue to support this welder.
    The zip ties did hit me funny at first as well but that just means I could eliminate that part easier if I decide to use the pedal exclusively or replace it if the switch goes bad without having to get a whole new torch head.
    All in all a very happy customer!
