Eastwood TIG Welder 200 Amp AC/DC is rated 4.4237 out of 5 by 118.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good option for slow production fabrication, or for the weekend warrior on a budget. Initially skeptical about the looks, but this first impression faded away as soon as I fired up the machine and did my very first pass over aluminum. Been welding aluminum with a Miller Spoolmatic 30 for at least 10 years, but needed the ability to do some more precise and cosmetic welding on thinner material. This machine does just that and I am still waiting for the duty cycle to kick in. Great value for someone on a tight budget involved in slow production fabrication, or for the weekend warrion. Just need to wait and see what the machine lifespan will throw into the "value" equation. For now, I am a happy camper with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, great welder! I bought this welder as part of the plasma/tig/cart combo. I've been really pleased with this welder so far! It's been 7yrs since I did any welding and I was no expert then, so I'm still getting back into the groove while learning this machine but so far it's been working great It's easy to use and adjust and has had plenty of power for all my general usage needs. I really appreciate that the welder and plasma use the same type of ground cable. My only grip is some of the plastic connector shells and that the send a crappy hand-held welding mask with the TIG. Until we sprout 3rd arms... either knock $5 off the price, or tack on another $5 and include a real mask

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I had given up trying to find an affordable TIG. Not only is this model affordable, but it is also able to work on my 110V outlet. It also has a dual plug so it can work on 220 as well as 110. I haven't found anything that I couldn't weld. If you have a decent technique with a gas welder, this unit will make you look like a hero and not put so much heat into your surrounding metal. VERY adjustable and goes up to 1/4" with ease. I put it on a low profile cart because the case is very tall. One note, very minor: the gas inlet is VERY LOW on the back of the case. You will have to grind a semi circular relief on the back edge of your cart to clear the hose fittings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT WELDER I OWN A SMALL MOTORCYCLE SHOP AND HAVE PUT THIS MACHINE THROUGH ITS PACES ON 110 AND 220 FROM ALUMINUM, STAINLESS, SHEET, THICK WALL TUBING, AND IT PERFORMS GREAT IT HAS NOT LET ME DOWN ONCE PAY NO ATTENTION TO ZIP TIES ON THE THUMB CONTROL IT MAKES IT EASY FOR REMOVAL AND REINSTALLING I ONLY USED IT ONCE FOR A ROLL CAGE OTHER THAN THAT IT'S IN A TOOL BOX. IF YOU ARE A BEGINNER ONE OF THE BIGGEST THINGS WHEN TIG WELDING IS HAVE YOUR BODY IN A COMFTORABLE POSITION I STRESS THIS TO PEOPLE ALL THE TIME THE PEDAL FOR THE TIG IS A NOT AS INDUSTRIAL AS I WOULD HOPE BUT IT DOES THE JOB VERY WELL AND EASTWOODS CUSTOMER SERVICE IS GREAT DO NOT HESITATE BUY IT BUY IT BUY IT

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good hobby welder I have been using this welder for about 4 months now and It has done what I need with no issues or troubles. Sure you can pay a lot more and get all the bells and whistles but for the home enthusiast this is more than enough. I had narrowed my search down to this 200 amp tig and that of the same model sold by Longevity Welders. Even though longevity offered me a better deal on there model and and spaying it was the same factory I declined there offer in favour of going with a company I know will stand behind there product. Buying from Eastwood was a no brainier for me Keep up the good work

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and good product Being short on a budget, this TIG welder produces quality welds on aluminum and steel. Every machine is a little different and takes some time to learn, and with little effort this machine was no harder to learn than any other I have used in my time. Once fired up it satisfied my requirements, and exceeded my expectations in its ability to weld and consistency. Hopefully the longevity will also be there and with a 3 year warranty, you really can' t beat it for a tool. I will keep this machine but hopefully can step up to a larger machine in the future as my production volume increases. It is a worthwhile purchase for the budget minded individual that wants a good weld in aluminum and steel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible Got this welder thinking it was a great deal for everything included,when I got the welder and plugged it in it didn't turn on, at first I thought it was the 110 so I plugged it in 220 and it still did not work, I found that the back wires were loose,once tightened the welder started right up so I got excited, I got everything hooked up got my gas going and tungsten sharpened and sat down to strike my arc and got no arc,I tried every different setting watched evey support video and still had no arc, I tried both the foot pedal and finger trigger and got nothing, I will be returning for refund definitely not worth trying another product out when just one had more than one problem

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice welder - Very poor quality 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.

Can you add a water cooled torch to the tig 200?

Asked by: Jesse41
We do not currently have any water cooled torch options for our TIG 200 machines. Using a water cooled torch with these machines will not be possible by any direct "bolt-on" means.

Can I use a CK brand torche with the TIG 200?

Asked by: Katy
Any brand torch will not have similar connections, if you wanted to swap heads, it would be at your digression and would also void warranty

Does this welder have a pulse feature that would allow for very short single pulses for welding very small items like jewelry?

Can the unit be used in home use or do I have to modify my circuit panel....

Asked by: toby hogan
You can use it anywhere as long as you have the proper electrical setup. You can use it on a standard 110v circuit when using the adapter. To use the machine to its full potential it requires a 220v 50A circuit with a NEMA 6-50R receptacle to match the 6-50P plug on the machine.

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.
