    Great TIG at a great price with plenty of room to grow

    I've been using a Clarke MIG welder for quite some time and after trying a couple high end Miller machines I decided I had to learn TIG because I wanted to mainly start working with aluminum on my car build but I didn't want to spend $4000 for a Miller Dynasty 200 and I didn't want to get a Diversion which I felt I could outgrow quickly. I've been looking at various low cost inverter TIG welders for the past year and have really noticed these imported inverters are just as good as any high end american made in terms of weld quality (can't speak for the durability and support of some of these machines). I mainly had set my eyes on the Everlast machines, but I decided to get this machine after watching several videos of this welder featured on youtube by Mr Tig and Kevin Caron. The features you get for the price just can't be matched.The machine arrived well packaged. I was able to test out both 110v and 220v with the TIG 4T and 2T modes both trigger and pedal.

    GREAT MACHINE!

    I can't really believe that I got this quality of welder at such a low price. I am sure the price will rise a good amount after there are a quite a few sold. The package was put together very well and safe. Not anything was broken or damaged. I opened everything and inspected all the components before installing. WP17 Torch is good quality and components are fine as well. It is very easy to connect everything. I used the machine with the 220v - 115v adapter which is a good quality piece as well. The gas regulator works fine but is not great. I will be upgrading to a ball flow meter style regulator when I can. I tried it out first with the foot pedal set at 130 amps on DC. I was testing on some 1/8" plate (Mild Steel). I used the 1/16" thoriated tungsten included. The arc was incredibly smooth. It had plenty of power at only 140 amps to go through the steel. I also tinkered on some stainless steel as well and the amperage control was great! This is a great buy and I can't wait... 5/5 Caleb Camrann Coker - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    AHP TIG Rocks It

    Arrived right on time, nicely boxed. Great build quality, included tungsten, ready to go. Hit it with 110 amps DC tig on 1/4 mild steel and laid a nice bead, (100% argon)noted high quality of arc, very smooth, easy start. Cutapart the bead and noted nice penetration. Went for the AC and some 1/8 aluminum plate. Easy to set start and end amps, cleaning, etc , plugged in supplied pedal and.....wow, like butter, love it.Time to go try it out on my chrome molley roll cage project......Did not try the stick function but I already have a sweet stick machine, so don't need it.The big thing to note about this AHP 200DX machine, is the smooth arc, the confidence a set of knobs inspires and the "ready to go" condition when it arrived. No fiddling with plugs, voltage jumpers, etc.The torch itself is OK and considering the price, pretty nice.

    works great

    0 5/5 Amazon Customer - 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) 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

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 Handler 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

    2 dead welders in a row!

    0 1/5 MTTech - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: LONGEVITY Tigweld 200sx - 200 Amp AC DC Tig/Stick Welder with Digital Display 110v 200v (Tools & Home Improvement) I ordered a Longevity 200sx from Amazon. The product box arrived undamaged and the welder inside looked to be in good condition. The pedal design was really unusual and difficult to use. I was pretty excited to get to welding anyway and had my argon and tungsten ready to go. When I turned on the welder I heard a pop and the welder was dead.I ordered a SECOND one and it was completely missing the LED digital display and the panel didn't work at all. Apparently no quality control at all. Longevity states they test each welder before it ships. Rubbish. How could they possibly test a welder that is missing the digital display??What a hassle. Not a good experience and obviously poor quality products. I'm glad I bought these lemons through Amazon and was able to return them. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 11, 2013

    not what I had hoped for

    before I ordered this welder, I read the reviews which were preatty much all positive, so I ordered it full of hope and anticipation. what a letdown. I waited 3 months after recieving it to try welding, as I had been reading up on tig welding and wanted to have a clue as to what I was doing. I missed the 30 day window for returning it to amazon. upon getting it setup, I began to string a bead in 1/8" mild steel, and everything seemed to be going well for the first 2" , then the unit appeared to loose almost all power and I have not been able to get enough juice out of it to melt a pool since. I submitted a trouble ticket on the longevity website, took 4 days to get a response. they stated that I could send it in for repairs, but, since I had purchased it from amazon and not directlly from them, that they would not fully honor the warrantee. I contacted amazon customer service, told them the story and they agreed to take the unit as a return, with full refund including shipping... 1/5 Don W. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
