  • Diversion 165

    Anybody have one of these yet?

    I would like a TIG and this looks like a good place to start.
    Nothing to do special, just wanted a TIG.

      Man I love mine. Bang vs buck makes this a great little TIG machine. Be warned that you won't do any more than 3/16" mild steel and chromoly or 1/8" ALU unless you have a lot of time as the duty cycle at the high end is not much.

      Having said that I still bought one for portable work. I do lots of cylinder/head repairs on quads and snowmobiles, as well as heat exchangers and radiators. The Diversion is an awesome machine for that. We heave a Lincoln Precision TIG 375 at the shop which is great for the big stuff, but when a customer calls and says he has a broke down sled in his garage that he can't/doesn't want to load up and bring in, I tell him no problem. I just load my little Diversion onto the back of my truck and go to him. It's made me nothin but money.

      If all you need to do is light sheet metal/repair work, buy one today
