  • Eastwood TIG Welder 200 Amp AC/DC
Eastwood TIG Welder 200 Amp AC/DC is rated 4.4944 out of 5 by 89.
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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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

What's the weight of welder and is that finger tip remote or on/off switch on handle

Asked by: BlownFB
The TIG AC/DC weighs 61 lbs. The fingertip control is on/off based on the amperage you set on the front of the machine, and is not a variable control like the foot pedal.

I am using this on site, how much does it weigh? Can it be carried, safely? 

Asked by: bob1959
Hello Bob, The unit can be carried I would recommend making a cart that will be able to go over the terrain that you will in counter. The weight of the unit tis around 60 pounds.

On the 200 amp AC/DC tig machine,is there a control to change the heat on the torch the way that the foot control does.

Asked by: JimFl
The foot pedal is variable, but the torch only has an on/off switch. When using the finger switch you need to set the amperage via the control on the front of the machine.

Can you buy an optional Stick Weld attachment?

Asked by: Sparky69
Unfortunately we do not have a stick welding attachment available for the TIG 200 at this time. For stick welding, take a look at our MIG/Stick 200.

Can you weld aluminum with 120 volt setting?

Asked by: craig
You can weld any material on 110v, but you will be limited to thinner materials. To use the machine with thicker materials you'll want to run it on 220v.

About Eastwood TIG Welder 200 Amp AC/DC
