  • Eastwood TIG 200 AC/DC Welder
Eastwood TIG 200 AC/DC Welder is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 227.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the job done Purchased welder in July and from the first day I was impressed with its capabilities. I had a miller econo tig that bit the dust and didn’t have the money to buy a miller. So I took the chance and all I can say is this rig can weld. I’m by no means a pro, I’m a home builder that is self taught welder from YouTube. Great machine for the learner and experienced welder at a fraction of the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Welder I am 48 years old and I learned how to TIG Weld on an Airco Bumble Bee and you had to scratch start a weld back then. I just got the Eastwood Tig 200 AC/DC and the high frequency starting makes it almost idiot proof. No more tungsten rods stuck to your work. Just bring the torch close enough to your work and hit the pedal. Perfect arc starting every time. I did buy the upgraded pedal and it makes a world of difference the pedal that comes with it is useable but the larger rocker pedal is the easiest way to go it's so much better. I am seriously impressed with this welder it works as well as machines that cost up to 10 times as much. It works great with steel but it really excelled with aluminum on AC. I couldn't be happier with this welder especially since it's just being used in my home workshop. This machine is a serious quality welder like you would have in a professional welding shop but it is cheap enough that you can buy it for your garage or workshop and have a professional welder at home. I also got a MIG 175 with Spool Gun because they are priced so affordable now I have professional grade equipment in my weekend workshop. You can't go wrong with this welder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine with a few upgrades OK first off let me say this machine in the hands of a capable welder is a great machine. I have welded tons of materials with this, everything from 0.035" aluminum to half inch aluminum plate with helium, cast iron brazing with aluminum bronze, thin stainless, thick stainless, thin wall steel tubing handled everything no problem. I am a welder by trade and I work for an experimental aircraft parts shop. At work we have a Miller dynasty 280. Also a great machine but with a heavy price tag, so i wanted something cheaper for my home shop, I picked this thing up on Craigslist used but looked brand new, barely used. I have the first model, the one that does not have the stick welding feature. I have had this machine for 2 years and has ran flawlessly. Some things to note that may be important to a serious welder, this does not have pulse, or AC frequency adjustment, bummer but Eastwood decided to keep it fixed at 60 hertz which is a good thing for welding thick aluminum, not so great for welding thin thin aluminum(I have not been able to weld aluminum cans with this machine unlike the dynasty at work). I will say that this welder would handle 90 percent of the work at my day job. I have some recommended upgrades for this thing if your using it as more than a hobbyist the foot pedal, get rid of it, and grab the eastwood rocker pedal, worlds better, even if you try the tricks like flipping the half pedal backwards or mounting it to the floor, it just sucks. On a side note on the rocker pedal I got mine didn't realize it was a different plug, so i just cut off the old plug on the half pedal and soldered it to the new rocker pedal(2 wires same color if i remember correctly) works like a dream. Next thing grab yourself a CK Trimline 26 flexhead with a superflex cable if you plan on welding above 150amp continuously. The superflex cables are just amazing. You need a 46V52 adapter to hook up the 26 style 200amp torches to the tig 200. To my knowledge Eastwood does not offer a 200amp air cooled torch, you will roast those tiny 17 torches that come with this thing if your welding thick aluminum or something for a good amount of time. I also swapped out the baby dinse ground connector to a normal size dinse 35-50 connector, to do this mod you have to drill out the case to accommodate the larger connector, again nothing a welder cannot handle, then you can hook up longer normal ground wires. I have a 30 foot ground cable to go with my 25 foot 200amp torch cable. Pick up a 50 foot 50amp 220v extenstion cord is an option too I use this as well so I can weld almost 100ft away from my power source. I also have the eastwood cart that holds the plasma cutter as well, got lucky and got it with my tig 200, unless your going to fab your own cart the eastwood cart is not a bad setup. Oh the regulator that comes with it just throw that thing right away too get a solid brass flowmeter they are cheap like $25 on ebay or amazon, don't be cheap, you'll spend more in argon within a couple months if you don't replace it, ask me how I know. At the end of the day you will have to spend a few hundred extra but you will have an awesome tig welding setup. My tig 200 setup i think i've probably got maybe a thousand bucks into it total, I got the cart and the tig 200 for $450 on craigslist used, and it is the first model they came out with still runs great, been rained on a time or 2 also, haha. But seriously, I've made probably 20 thousand dollars off this little thing doing side jobs and it still runs like money everyday.

is there a switch to change the input from 110v to 220 or is there a place to change wiring on the unit

I have this machine and I used it on aluminum and ran it for awhile and now it says it’s overload. How do I fix this? 

Asked by: Gabriel713
Overload indicates the unit needs to sit and cool down as it has been welding too long. If the problem persists we recommend contacting our Customer Service team at 1800 343 9353 or

Eastwood TIG 200 AC/DC Welder

Best AC/DC TIG Welder

A 200-amp Eastwood TIG welder is the most affordable way for mechanics and other metal workers to get excellent welds on all of their projects. This AC/DC TIG welder uses a tungsten electrode to heat metals and joins them together without becoming part of the finished weld, reducing splatter and mess. The AC mode is used for aluminum, while the DC mode can be used to weld steel and stainless steel in tube, sheet or bar stock form, offering incredible versatility in a skilled set of hands. A stick-weld feature is available as well for use in outdoor conditions or on dirty metals.

Eastwood TIG 200 AC/DC Welder

Our team has designed this machine to be easy for beginners to use while still offering the capabilities that advanced welders need. It has a straightforward control panel for setting your arc, amperage and mode. The AC/DC adapter cord makes it a cinch to switch between modes. Our portable TIG welders weigh just 45 pounds so you can load them into a car, truck or trailer and bring them wherever you're needed.

A Complete TIG Welding Package

Anyone with a power source of 110 to 240 volts can power the Eastwood TIG200 Welder for spot welding or fabrication on metals thick and thin. You'll get precise welds thanks to the high-frequency instant start and square-wave AC inverter that assist with control and accuracy. It is rated for a duty cycle of 60 percent at normal amperage, meaning you can weld continuously for up to six minutes and complete a large section in one fell swoop.

Eastwood TIG 200 AC/DC Welder

Everything is included with this welder for doing excellent welding straight out of the box. In addition to the AC/DC TIG welder, you'll receive a shielding gas regulator and hose (gas tanks sold separately), a WP-17 Series TIG torch that uses industry-standard consumables, several sizes of gas nozzles and collets, two tungsten rods and a lot more. We've included a variable foot pedal as well to set the amperage anywhere from 10 to 200 amps depending on project needs. Eastwood backs each welder with a 3-year warranty and our 100 percent customer satisfaction guarantee.

Duty Cycle

The Rated Duty Cycle refers to the amount of welding that can be done within an amount of time. The Eastwood TIG 200 has a duty cycle of 60% at 190 Amps. It is easiest to look at your welding time in blocks of 10 Minutes and the Duty Cycle being a percentage of that 10 Minutes. If welding at 190 Amps with a 60% Duty Cycle, within a 10 Minute block of time you can weld for 6 Minutes with 4 Minutes of cooling for the welder. To increase the Duty Cycle you can turn down the Amperage Output control. Going above 190 Amps will yield a lower duty cycle.
