    No complaints

    My first comment is that mine doesn't look like the unit pictured. I don't have the plastic front and rear case covers; but that isn't really a functional complaint.The plasma cutting and arc welding functions seem to work fine for the small jobs I have done in the first two months I've owned it.The digital display for the amperage using the plasma function only displays up to 29 amps, not the advertised 30. However, I am not sure if it is outputting 29 or 30 amps since there is no appreciable difference in 28 and 29-30 amps in the work I have done so far. I have cut 7/16" stock with it in the 28 and 28-29 amperage ranges, so I doubt it really matters. Hopefully the consumables listed for sale elswhere work with this unit since it didn't come with a good supply.I have cut mostly 16ga, 18ga, and 3/16" stock for some light fab projects in the garage.

This review is from: 3 in 1 New STAHLWERK CT 312 DC Inverter MMA/TIG/ Welding Machine Welder Plasma Cutter Cutting Machine (Misc.) I've used this compact unit for one week & am delighted with the plasma cutting function. It's fast with virtually no slag. I had no difficulty welding with the stick function either so it's well worth the investment just for those two functions. I have a tig job coming up next week so will try both aluminum and stainless and report back. A friend who does monster sculpture and ships internationally- borrowed it yesterday when his $1800. plasma cutter broke down. He too was impressed. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 15, 2013

    killer deal for this machine!!!

This review is from: 3 in 1 New STAHLWERK CT 312 DC Inverter MMA/TIG/ Welding Machine Welder Plasma Cutter Cutting Machine (Misc.) Great product! Very happy I purchased this machine. The plasma cutter works great! It will cut though anything with no problems.The stick option is standard and works well. I have yet to try the TIG option. I was a bit nervous about the plug on this machine due to another review saying it wasn't a common one and it doesn't show it in the picture. However, it is a standard 50 amp welder plug configuration. Common at any electrical supply house. One thing it dosn't come with is a quick release barbed air hose attachment. But, you can pick one up at any hardware store. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 3, 2014

    works great

This review is from: Hobart 500551 EZ TIG 165i 230-Volt Inverter-Based AC/DC Welder (Tools & Home Improvement) i was looking for easy to use, inexpensive tig welder after taking a class to use for hobby work. So far it is working great, easy to use, no problems encountered. Can't say much about the weld quality, but that is the operator, not the equipment. When i actually do it right, the welds look very nice. i haven't tried aluminum yet, I've just been working on a welding table from mild steel. Then I'll start on some 4130 chromoly & Aluminum practice.Recommended if you want an easy to use, inexpensive machine. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 24, 2010

    So far love it

    0 5/5 PNWmosshead - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hobart 500551 EZ TIG 165i 230-Volt Inverter-Based AC/DC Welder (Tools & Home Improvement) Got this machine this week, welding steel is an absolute dream. I also have a Hobart Handler 210 with the spool gun for aluminum but wanted to get away from the spatter and have nice clean welds. Aluminum so far has been a challenge. After a few days of practice and getting a different tungsten for the gun and smaller filler rod it has gotten better. After watching a few videos and reading some online forums I'm learning how to weld aluminum much better and I think this machine will be everything I was hoping it would be. Nice machine, but I wish the leads were detachable. Overall, love it! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 23, 2012

    Nice machine!

    0 5/5 Dan Tappan - See all my reviews This review is from: Hobart 500551 EZ TIG 165i 230-Volt Inverter-Based AC/DC Welder (Tools & Home Improvement) This does everything I need, and it's a joy to operate. The controls make setup a breeze. It's also a very light unit, at least compared to my Hobart Handle 187, which weighs a ton. The actual TIG welding isn't easy, but this is true of any unit.The only downside is that it only comes with a 3/32" collet and collet body. If you're using 1/16", 0.040", or 0.20" electrodes, you'll need to order these separately. But they're inexpensive. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 23, 2013

    Good welder - watch the Importer!

    I have been using this welder in a busy gun shop for 2-3 years. It gets used daily but I seldom have the arc going for over 30 seconds. I am welding on guns and must keep the heat load in the metal low. So I have no Idea how the machine will hold up doing long continuous welds.The argon gas cut off valve is very prone to sticking open. I know a number of folks with these machines and eventually they all start doing it. A sharp mild smack to the left rear side of the welder un-sticks it. However, get used to checking for gas after flow or it will run out your entire talk in a few hours. ALWAYS shut off your gas bottle when you quit welding for more than a few minutes. This is good practice anyway.I was a dealer for these for about a year. For the price they are wonderful machines. Considering the price you may have issues. I quit being a dealer on these due to less than wonderful ethics on the part of the importer. I also sometimes had difficulty... 4/5 G.

    0 5/5 Nomad - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Everlast Power ITig 200 DC Stick TIG Welder 110v/220v (Tools & Home Improvement) I've have this unit for 5 month and i think that is long enough to give a true review. Everything about it works great. I don't use it alot but I customized my motorcycle over the winter and welded several items on it. I used both Tig and stick. I was able to weld some very thin stainless steel, low amps and it ran very smooth. The HF works well. I bought a 40 cf argon tank at the local suppy shop for $125. I was a bit apprehensive about buying an off brand machine but could not justify spending BIG bucks on a welder that would not see a lot of use. I am very happy with this unit. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 10, 2013

I wasn't about to lay down big bucks for the American welders... (Miller, Lincoln). So I was looking at the Chinese welders... there is no question that this is made in China and Eastwood doesn't hide the fact either. I have restored cars before and have delt with Eastwood in the past... Their 3 year warranty is what sold me on going with the Eastwood machine. So let's get onto the review.I did alot of research online on how to tig weld... check youtube there are tons of videos. So I finally got a bottle of argon and a piece of metal to start on. The unit fired, but I could not melt the steel (1/16" plate). I figured I did something wrong and kept trying, still no melt. I then switched it from pedal to panel and it worked fine.

    TIG newbie is pleased…

    I bought my machine straight from Eastwood (Amazon price is slightly better at the moment, live and learn…) and so far am quite pleased… I’m just a weekend hobbyist/hack with a little acetylene and arc/flux-core experience, so I had no idea what to expect and can’t compare this with others in this price range, let alone the big heavy-duty commercial machines. But I am fully satisfied …Like another reviewer I did a bunch of online research, but I’ve had no formal training on TIG (watched some vids, that’s it). I discovered the hand/eye coordination for the Eastman TIG is similar to gas, but as I expected it was a touch more demanding – nonetheless, the Eastman machine has produced creditable welds almost from the beginning, when I don’t contaminate the tungsten (ham-fisted). No squawks so far, everything went right together out of the box (I broke tradition and actually read the directions – twice!) and I dove... 5/5 Lawrence Bird (Virginia USA) - See all my reviews, February 19, 2014
