Eastwood TIG Welder 200 Amp AC/DC

Product Review (submitted on May 21, 2014):

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.
