Eastwood TIG Welder 200 Amp AC/DC

Product Review (submitted on January 27, 2012):

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!
