  • Eastwood TIG 200 AC/DC Welder
Eastwood TIG 200 AC/DC Welder is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 222.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4 1/2 STARS IN MY BOOK Full disclosure: I learned how to TIG weld on this machine, so I can not compare to other TIGs. After several years of MIG welding I decided to learn to TIG weld. Eastwood made it possible with this affordable rig. Easy to set up no issues; machine works as advertised. I used Eastwood instructional videos and started practicing. One thing I couldn’t get used to was the pedal. I could never in get in a comfortable position with it, so I purchased the upgraded rocker style pedal for $99. What a difference that makes. Eastwood should charge little more and provide the rocker pedal with this machine. That would make the learning curve not as steep for us noobs! Great and affordable machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Tig machine, and not just for the price! I have been using my Eastwood Tig200 for about 4 years now, with absolutely zero issues at all! The machine has had it neck wrung welding 1/4" stainless @190 amps, and didn't miss a beat. I did purchase the smaller #9 Tig torche for the smaller, lower and jobs. The only thing I have ever "dis-liked" about the machine bis the "flimsy" foot pedal. It looks like now, there is an upgraded "rocker" style pedal available, but it unfortunately doesn't fit my older machine. (That's a bummer). Anyone that is in the market for an affordable Tig machine that has high frequency and A/C, I wouldn't even think about another machine then this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Machine and Great Customer Service I originally reviewed the Machine 14 Days ago. Was having problems with it and after going through the Mashine with Scott we got to a conclusion that there was a problem with the same. They replaced the machine with a new one and what a difference it made. I feel like a professional tig welding now. Thanks Scott and Eastwood.

How can I get a water cooled tig torch? This baby gets HOT. Also can I exchange foot pedal for the rocker style? 

Asked by: Mark
At this time you would have to search for an add on TIG cooler setup as we do not currently have on on the market. As for the foot pedal we do not have an exchange set up for the rocker type. This is simply and upgrade which can be ordered to add to your TIG welder.

I have a newer RangerGXT 250 welder/generator on my service truck. Will this be able to run off of aux power on it since it is not “clean power” compared to the power in my shop?

Asked by: Tommy
You can certainly run our TIG 200 off of a generator. If you wish to be able to run the full potential of the unit the generator will need to be able to produce at least 7200 watts running power.

While Tig welding is done with straight polarity Arc welding is normally done with reverse polarity. when stick welding do I need to reverse the leads on the machine?

Asked by: Scott A
Depending on the welding rod you are running you can certainly reverse the leads to change the polarity of the weld.

Does the ac have pulse control?

Asked by: Flyfisher_2
This unit does not have a dedicated Pulse control other than pulsing the current with the variable foot pedal. Our Digital TIG on the other hand does that an adjustable pulse control option.

Eastwood TIG 200 AC/DC Welder

The Eastwood TIG 200 welder offers industrial TIG features at a DIY price for home auto fabricators or pro technicians. This specially engineered 200-amp Eastwood TIG Welder offers affordable, professional-quality TIG welding on aluminum, stainless steel and mild steel (sheet, tube or bar stock), and precise welding of thinner-gauge materials up to ¼-inch thick. With its versatile design, powerful welding capabilities and guaranteed quality, this welder is the last one many auto restorers will ever need.

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.

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.

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.

Features:

  • Stick welds in AC and DC Positive/Negative.
  • Operates on either 110vAC, 15-amp circuit or 220vAC, 30-amp circuit.
  • 1/4"-thick welding capacity on 220VAC.
  • High-frequency start for precise arc control.
  • Square-wave inverter for accurate aluminum welding.
  • "WP-17"-type torch accepts common cups and collets with up to 1/8" electrodes.
  • TIG Welding AC Duty Cycle (%): 120VAC 60% at 145 amps, 220VAC 60% at 190 amps)
  • Backed by Eastwood's no-hassle return policy and 3-year warranty.

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.
