  • Looking for a compact TIG welder

    Q. I would like to know if there's a compact TIG welder that can weld 20 gauge aluminum to 3/16 thickness, & steel from say 22 gauge to 3/16 or 1/4, that doesn`t need a large truck to carry it in or big amperage to run? I already have a Syncrowave 300 at the shop that's perfect. I'm just looking for something more portable to take to the race track. (Submitted by: Steve Magistro from Lindenhurst NY)

    A. The machine with your name on it is the Syncrowave 180 SD. It can do all you need. This is the model I put on most of the transporters of my NASCAR teams that our company helps. They have no trouble at all with running this unit at the track. Your only other option would be a Dynasty with an air-cooled torch. It will be quite a bit more expensive but lighter and more power efficient.
