Eastwood TIG Welder 200 Amp AC/DC is rated 4.3821 out of 5 by 123.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I HATE this Tig I bought this to do 18ga sheetmetal repairs, what a PieceOStuff. I've wasted more in consumables, material, and time than this thing cost. VERY UNHAPPY. I can weld thicker stuff, no-problem, in-fact at 1/4" and thicker it lays down a nice weld. I've tried everything: smaller tungsten, finer-point, higher-flow, lower-flow, 75/25, straight-Argon, completely-cleaned, sanded-shiney, more stick-out, less stick-out, larger lens, backup-plates, nothing works. Oh, I can melt 18ga without punch-thru, but the welds are brittle and seem contaminated and take WAY too much time to puddle, eventually overheating the entire piece. I get discouraged and switch over to my Mig with 023, and produce beautiful, quick spots/welds without any warpage. I love my Eastwood MIG185, but this TIG200 is a complete PieceOStuff. I'm about to smash it in with a sledge, just to get a little enjoyment out of my investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Tig Welder I got to say this Tig welder is Awesome! I have been only tig welding for about 6 classes so far. We use the Miller 350 at school, Nice unit. But I can do just as well with the Tig 200. My instructor was impressed with my work I bring from home. He can't believe it was only $899. Just about every night I spend an hour welding scrap together. I found out one of the most important thing is to be able to see the start of the puddle. I have pretty good eyes. I put a 2.50 magnifier in my helment and it was amazing how much better I started to weld. Tri it !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great Just got this bad boy today, set it up and started practicing. I have used several TIGs, and this was one of the easiest to set up and start using. The "welding mask" they give you is a joke, but what are you gonna do? fired up right away. I started welding on some 1/4 inch plate and it's perfect. The price is great, shipping was fast and the machine works good. The two issues I have are...How am I supposed to hold a torch and a filler rod while also holding a welding mask??, and Why do I get3 cups and 3 collets, but only one tungsten? Can't complain toomuch though and I am absolutely happy with it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Low Quality The first unit was replaced after the overload light came on after 3 hours of use. Replacement took 2+ weeks. The second unit would not work at all. There was a problem with the air regulation. I would not recommend this product at all. I was excited about some of the features, but if it is that unreliable, there is no value in owning it. I ended up finding a used Miller Syncrowave 180 with cart for $900. It has been performing reliably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted I always wanted to weld aluminum. After retiring, I bought this it weld at home. I had an auto body shop for 30 years. I've used a mig, stick, and oxy/acl, so welding is not new to me. There was a slight learning curve with aluminum as well as other items you need to buy in order to make it happen.... like a tank, tungsten, and wire. Small tanks run out of argon in about 2 hours. I've refilled the tank once so far. Overall I am very pleased. I work on large scale model airplanes, and use aluminum quite a bit. Its indispensable for making up exhaust systems. I love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Huge learning curve but you get used to it.A full tank of argon and you're up and running. the Hand control on this thing is annoying to use.The foot pedal works flawlessly.Your standard Harbor Freight welding helmut will work 40% of the time with this machine the other 60% of the time you'll be blinded by the arc.So upgrade to a digital welding helmut. This machine is not short on power it will burn holes through various gauges of steel at low amps with ease.110volt works great.The only downside to tig is the argon consumption buy a couple tanks or get a huge one.Overall great machine

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great customer service mediocre welder at best I bought this first about one year ago, the first one brand new out of the box shocked me literally... Shocked me because of an internal electrical problem. They replaced it right away. I was very apprehensive about it's ability afterwards so I didn't use it much... A few weeks back I needed to weld some fittings into a valve cover... And the ac side failed and would overheat. So like the great company they are they shipped a new one right out. So far so good after fixing the gas leaks inside the case. You get what you pay for and I would have been far better off buying a used miller or Lincoln for a little more money. I tried to sell it and trade it in and my weld supplier won't even take it. Pretty much I would buy from Eastwood but can't recommend this welder

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product After talking with Debbie (Deb) in PA. She re assured me of this products quality as I am from the West Coast and have never heard of Eastwood. I have had the TIG 200 for about three weeks and absolutely love it. Thank you DEB. AC feature works better than anticipated. Cant be any happier with this product and look forward to purchasing more products from Eastwood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Dissapointed I have shopped and shopped for a tig welder. Used and new, I just could not bring myself to part with the 3k and up price. When I saw the TIG200 it seemed to good to be true for the price. But with a money back guaranty, I gave it a try. Welding aluminum on motorcycles is why I purchased this welder. After some practice I welded a patch on a silencer and it worked great! It starts easily and is very easy to control. The instructions with the machine are easy to understand. I am very satisfied with my purchase. It does everything I expected, and at an awesome price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am learning alot, it's great! I have been using this in hopes of restoring a 1973 Challenger that I have to replace every major body panel and floor pan. Thought I would use it to fill in the seams between roof and quarter panels. Not as easy as it may. I have never used one before and it takes practice, lots of practice. I have found that the charts are a guide and a place to start but amperage should be adjusted to create a perfect puddle. Aluminum is even harder. I think the finger trigger is a great feature, I thought I would hate it. But, I am learning a lot and will get where I need to be with it shortly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time Tig welder This was my first time trying to Tig and was doing aluminum, very easy to set up and works flawlessly. Was laying nice beads after about 10mins. Was very impressed with the quality and how user friendly it is. Only instruction was from the YouTube videos
Date published: 2015-03-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from issues After a while of searching and looking all over the web I decided to pull the trigger and purchase the Tig 200 welder. I got it from Fed Ex in 3 days and was thrilled about that, but so far that ends the excitement. I got the welder out of its excellent packing and plugged it into my 110 outlet. I pushed the foot pedal just to see what happens (since never having tig welded) and it immediately overloaded. After having a 30amp 220 plug put in. I plugged the welder in and it immediately overloaded when I turned the welder on. I called customer support and like other reviews say it is excellent. They called back quickly after I talked to tech support and got me set up to send it back. They are sending me another welder once they get the defective one back. I sure hope it works well since I can't afford a Miller or Lincoln.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good welder but its a good welder just wish a dvd instruction disc came with it... new at tig but very seasoned on stick and mig... would have been nice to have a green electrode with the unit for start up so a person really knew what direction one wanted to go with it all,,, other than that im already running alluminum but I was stick welding aluminum gas tanks before,,, all in all good welder for the price... only problem I really had was regulator didn't work right off the bat and dumped 3/4 of my bottle of argon , think I have the bugs out of it now thx kelley

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Issues revisited This is a follow up to an earlier review. I did receive my new welder and since then I've been welding like crazy. I just want to make sure everything is ok in those first 30 days. After a little tweeking of the coating on the foot pedal that wasn't allowing the welder to shut off I was in business. I had the welder cranked up today nearly to the max and I was welding passes across a piece of 1/4 in. aluminum. I would say it had plenty of heat, and I finally had to take a break when it got too hot to keep my hands around. I'm happy with it so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than I expected. Right out of the box and went to work. Welded up a set of handle bats for a chopper project. 1" d.o.m. Tubing with 1/8" wall thickness. Welded flawlessly ! I gave not tried aluminum yet but, based on what I've done so far I believe in this machine. Much to my surprise everything I needed was provided with the exception of argon & welding rods. Tungsten, tips, collets, & the chart on the welding machine is a great reference guide.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dont waste your money Sounds good but not worth it. It broke after 3 days, constantly overheats and would put out close to 200 amp. Save up and buy a miller.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from JUNK Absolute JUNK I got this welder as a gift from my wife's family. First time I used the torch trigger stopped working. I called about getting it fixed and they couldn't figure out whos name it was under so no warranty. The next time I used the welder stopped working all together. I was extremely excited about getting a TIG but this machine is JUNK! My wife feels bad about it and is not happy about the product support!
Date published: 2014-05-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I bought this welder about a year ago and absolutley love it! Excellent on sheet metal and 3/16" plate as I've only ran it on the 110v plug. Great control with aluminum using the foot pedal. I weld tube cages, off road accesories and parts as well as fabricate custom rods and choppers and metal fabrication in general. For the price, you can't beat it. Aside from having a 3 yr. warranty, the welder is less expensive than it's Miller and Lincoln counterparts, and it works just as good if not better. If you make the purchase, you won't be disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great welder at a great price! Like most, I went out on a limb branching away from the well-known Miller and Lincoln welders (of which I also have) and decided to purchase the Eastwood Tig200. I was even more skeptical after receiving my first welder and quickly returning it due to a fault in the unit (it would immediately trip to overload simply switching it on). However, I would like to point out that the customer service was excellent. I called and without any questions Eastwood immediately shipped a brand new unit which arrived in just a few days. Fast forward over a year later and a number of gas tanks and this thing keeps on flawlessly welding. It is a smooth welding machine with simple controls to quickly get down to welding. I've welding everything from mild steel, tool steel, 4130, stainless and even aluminum with no issues. Definitely a great machine and at a price that's hard to beat!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Rocky Start But Okay Now I bought the TIG 200 AC/DC and received it quickly. After putting it all together the solenoid valve for the shielding gas only worked intermittently after only approximately four hours of welding. Tough to weld without shielding gas! After several communications I sent the first unit back and got a replacement. Now all is well except for the learning curve and sharpening tungsten regularly since I dip them. I am working through that phase. I am a hobby welder mainly using stick and mig and will only use the tig infrequently so the TIG 200 is just what I need. I did replace the pressure regulator gauge included for a flow meter and that seems to better control gas flow and overall argon consumption. All in all I am satisfied with the purchase.
Date published: 2015-01-10
Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Edsel of TIG welders I purchased my TIG200 AC/DC three and a half years ago, taking delivery in August of 2011. The second time I used it, the circuit breaker tripped and would not re-start, even after re-setting the circuit breaker. I promptly contacted Eastwood which, in turn, sent me a replacement and even sent FedEx to my doorstep to pick-up the faulty unit. The replacement TIG200 had a faulty pedal which would not shut off, thus causing a veritable lightning show of arcs and sparks when releasing the pedal and pulling away the torch. Again, I contacted Eastwood’s tech department; they convinced me to accept a replacement pedal, rather than send back the entire unit for a refund. By now it was November of 2011. Now somewhat “gun shy” of my TIG200, I nevertheless used my TIG on a handful of projects over the next couple of years: welding exhaust pipes, making a set of sub-frame connectors, welding patch panels on fenders and what not, and fabricating some railing. All the while, I noticed my Argon consumption--and the money in my wallet--seemed excessive, and bought a larger tank to compensate. Well, you guessed it: in October, 2014, I discovered my shielding gas hose had a hole in it. Arrgggh! Once again, I contacted Eastwood. Even though the three-year warranty had expired perhaps a couple weeks earlier, the tireless and helpful member of Eastwood’s customer service agreed to send me a replacement, which I received from Eastwood in short order. The problem: they sent me a regulator. Ugh! After explaining that I needed shielding gas hose, and not a regulator, Eastwood sent me... drum roll, please! ... a regulator hose. (Note: in fairness to Eastwood, the TIG200 Manual refers to both the regulator hose and the shielding gas hose as “shielding gas hose”.) However, unlike the regulator and regulator hose, the shielding gas hose was on back order and would not arrive until December 24th. In the meantime, I received emails from Eastwood, a) advising that the “torch” was on back order and would I like to cancel (No!), and b) soliciting my review of my new “torch” which I had yet to receive. Having already received two incorrect shipments, I checked the part no. on Eastwood’s website and, sure enough, Eastwood was sending me a replacement TIG torch. I immediately emailed Eastwood venting my frustration. They calmly explained that the shielding gas hose is not sold separately and is included when ordering a replacement torch. The third time was the charm: Upon opening my replacement shielding gas hose (and torch), to my delight inside the box was the correct part. Yeah! Thank you, Eastwood! So far, my TIG200 works, but I can’t say I’m confident it will continue to do so for any length of time. Based on my experience (and unlike most Eastwood branded products), the TIG200 is poorly manufactured. Had I known what I know now, I would never have bought the TIG200. Don’t make the same mistake I did, lest you go through the same frustrations as did I.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from uses a lot of argon I welded the top of my dash on my 1968 camaro this is the first time I have tig welded I usually gas weld my projects , I started with 1500psi about an hour latter I looked over at the gage it showed 500psi i thought the gage was not right, 30 minutes after that I knew the gage was just fine , total of 5 rods used. and one empty tank. But yes this welder did produce fine welds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working GOOD Ordered in mid july . Received it ,then a couple of weeks before I got the tank and cart and plug wired . Set it up and adjusted the Argon flow,shut it off worked fine. Next day setup to weld and powered it on and it shut down and died. I had read all the reviews . Tech support said it would have to be shipped back. Talked with returns person ,she sent a pickup to FEDEX . I packed it up and it was picked up. Received new one the following week,set it up and started welding. I have about an hour on it and plan to play some more this weekend. I t had been several years since I had done any Tig welding. TIG200 is working great. Now to try some small parts/gunparts. YES I would buy it again! Works as good/better than machines at twice the price. OWLSHOP

Rated 1 out of 5 by from starts off ok then but as it gets used.. hahaha I purchased this unit almost a year and a half ago... the dc side works prety good.. but... the AC side is donkey... I think its starting to slow down in its ac cycle.... and on that note the ac balance on this machine is not worth a cake... the foot pedal is very coarse so do not expect to be able to feather out your stops... it comes with horrible gauges... its not even a cheep donkey flow gauge come one now!!!! then there's the tig torch its falls apart and the hose decays I'm on my third... oh and this is the second machine they have sent me and I need the bugger replaced again do to the ac hz have gon to heck and are blowing my tungsten out... Great machine as long as you just use it for ac... sound like others have had better luck good for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for what ales you I weld for a living but I dont have a ton of money to put into a tig machine. I think with this machine I will be able to make more money on the part time side. It keeps up with out a problem to any torch I've ever used before. At 45% D/C at 150 amps wich by the way I dont use until I get to 9/16" thick steel and "Joey Home Owner" will never use at this level of welding, its perfect for the week end welder/body guy. Perfect price, perfect size, perfect strenth. good job Eastwood, I'll be looking at buying more from you in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall good value for the price I purchased this over a month ago and finally have had time to test it some. Tonite I welded a Land Rover aluminum block, a crack in the water jacket. Using a rosebud to heat the engine, I ran the welder for 8-10 minute at a time full throttle! AC square wave adjustment worked well at cleaning the area and then adjusting it to gain max heat into work piece. All this on 120vac! I needed more amps like a 350 amp model , but I kept using rosebud to heat it then weld some. My only addition to the welder was the addition of a gas lens so I can 1) extend the electrode farther out of the cup for hard to reach areas, and 2) to conserve gas, by using a gas lens you may be able to dial back gas flow, as the gas lens projects the gas in a column around the electrode.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from first time tig i got the tig 200 and the plasma cutter combo when it was on sale for 1,099 buks. my first weld was on my aluminum jon boat, welded a bracket for rod holders. at first the puddle kept balling up, i increased the amp and bam got the puddle goin. the key is moving the puddle in between the welding parts. the weld looks solid, it dont look like roll of coins but its solid. the previous bad weld spots i just ran over it with the torch only on higher amp...foot pedal to the metal. im hooked on tig welding, welded today till the gas ran out. the weld looks horrible without argon gas. well that was my experience today with the tig 200, notbad for a first timer. oh , btw i used a 1/16 lanthanated tungsten and 1/16 4043 filler rod, but i think 3/32 been better filler.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Eastwood stands behind their tig welder as well as purchasing eastwoods plasma cutter i bought in the combo package they are offering with a cart it is money well spent. i read its reviews and researched this item. what i came up with was either it works out of the box or it doesn't. i was bummed out when i got mine and the torch hose had a collapsed section and kinked everytime u moved the torch and the wires for the foot petal were melted and i havent even used it yet. i called eastwood and told them their was a problem with the attachments and they rushed me out new parts asap no questions asked. no hassle. once i got my parts i hooked up a argon tank and bought a tube of rod and away i went. as a mig and stick welder and never tig'ed before its a breeze to use. i own a body shop and i use the plasma cutter and tig welder almost everyday. never fails. amazing for welding patch panels especially thin body panels. havent tried thick metal or aluminum but i can only imagine how good this thing works.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from EASY TO AND GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE I NEVER THOUGHT I COULD JUSTIFY THE PURCHASE OF A TIG WELDER UNTIL THIS UNIT CAME ALONG. WHEN I FIRST SET UP THE UNIT I HAD NO GAS FLOW FROM THE TORCH, I CALLED EASTWOOD ,DESCRIBED THE PROBLEM AND THEY HAD A COMPLETE NEW TORCH TO ME IN A COUPLE OF DAYS. THATS CUSTOMER SERVICE. I'VE BEEN USEING THE MACHINE FOR ABOUT EIGHT MONTHS WITH NO PROBLEMS. IT DOESN'T HAVE ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES OF BIG BLUE BUT ITS A GREAT MACHINE FOR THE MONEY. I JUST WISH I WOULD HAVE HELD OFF UNTIL THE SALE OF THE WELDER AND PLASMA CUTTER.

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.

How thin of aluminum can be welded. How does unit compare with the Lincoln square wave welders on thin aluminum ?

Asked by: bobaluminum
It will do 20 gauge as the thinnest material with somewhat ease before getting into the thinner material. Square wave will allow better low amp control with thinner materials. Unfortunately ours does not have that technology. It can make welding thinner material difficult at times but still plausible

Does the TIG 200 have provision for a pedal amperage control? And does it turn the inert gas on and off during normal operation? Is the high frequency output adjustable?

Asked by: redoilguy
Yes the pedal will control amps based off of where you set your max at IE: set at 110amp you have range from 30-110amps. Yes it still will run post and pre flow as per setting on the unit. No, the HF is a preset on the unit.

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.
