Eastwood TIG Welder 200 Amp AC/DC
Product Review (submitted on May 12, 2014):
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.
