  • Need some help choosing the right tig welder

    HI, right now I'm in the process of searching for a tig welder for my shop. I will be mostly doing aluminum, mild steel stainless and moly. I really don't see anything being thicker then 1/4- 3/8 thick. Im looking at getting the syncrowave 210, but i also found a good deal on a Lincoln 225 precision tig. I was also considering the diversion 180 but i like that the other 2 have more features and help or advice would be awesome thanks

      If you can afford to make the investment...

      would surmise the Dynasty 280 would do the job for you.. and has the extra horsepower that the others lack for aluminum work..

      I Love my Dyn 350DX Tigrunner & Dyn 200DX....
      have had them for several years and it was money well spent

      The Dynasty 280 falls squarely between the two..

      Please do not make the mistake of buying equipment that falls short of your needs because you are trying to save money... it will cost you much more in the long run...

          Depends on your input power you have, and how much you want to spend.

          1/4" pretty much any machine to 200 amps, 3/8 you'd have a machine cranked to 250 amps, so a 300 amp ac unit would be a better alternative.

          A 210 won't cut it...

              I guess I have some.thinking to do because a bigger machine really isn't in the budget
