TIG welder choice ?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm expanding my workshop capabilities - so now I got my eye on a  TIG welder : MIGATRONIC
Model: MDU 400  big ol' one heavy one I can get it for 1000 $ - is it a good buy ? It's old but working order - It's for welding anything we can't with stick welders.

I just bought a 225 Amp Primeweld tig/stick welder. It's AC/DC and will do aluminum too. I'm new to tig welding and this thing is so easy to use it's not even funny. It works great. Customer service is second to none also. I paid about $780 for it off Amazon. I think it's a great welder for someone who doesn't have a ton of experience with one. It's way easier to use than the big, high dollar one we have at work. I just welded sticks of copper and brass together the other day, as well as fusion weld my Damascus billets together.

Brass O.O ?! keep that  devil out of my shop :P I've hated that metal since marine engineering school xD devilsh chip they make stick to everything. I'm probly damaged by enviroment xD always learned to weld on the big stuff, so for me bigger=better  - it isn't  unusual for me to have a request welding some really big stuff with TIG :b  what's the duty cycle on the 780$ unit ?

Looks like a Sherman TIG 320 AC/DC is a good machine ;)  but if i can buy that big older one for 200$ i'll go for that
