|RippinRon||If you want to do aluminum and have decent results you need a squarewave machine that has adjustable ac balance. With a squarewave machine you can use thoriated, ceriated or lanthanated tungstens that are ground to a point on aluminum. You get a narrower arc a can focus the heat better. The new inverter machines are pretty slick they are light and use little power.|

|Overdriv||I just read their warranty and although it is warranted for 3 years, shipping to and from Eastwood is the buyer's responsibility. Might not be a big deal, but it then says all repairs will be made by Eastwood. So that's not a good situation to be in if you need repairs. Shipping is costly these days, especially for something that big and heavy. I'd as soon buy a Miller or Lincoln, even a used one, because the Miller/Lincoln dealer is only 30 miles away.|

Tho my small TIG is not from Eastwood. It is from their supplier. Direct from China.
I was very sceptical when I bought the Item, but I had previously purchased a plasma cutter from the same manufacturer and it has been great.
The TIG is very powerful and does a good job. NOT like the big Lincoln unit I was used to, but very good for small/medium projects in the garage.. Foot pedal is Kinda cheap looking. Still works good after a year of use.
Consumables are available, cheap and arrive in less than a working week.

First off, please don't turn this into a Miller/Lincoln is better thread.
Most of us know all about Miller and Lincoln welders, if not start a new thread.
I have a Miller Mig, I need a TIG machine that will do Aluminum in my shop small projects, with my hotrods.
Although I can weld good enough to get by, I'm not real knowlegdable about welding, matter of fact my brother and a friend do most of the welding I need done. My eyes are just not as good as they use to be. And I really don't care much for welding.
Anyway, has anyone seen and/or bought one of Eastwoods new TIG welders. I'd like to find first hand opinions and comments.
For the price, it might be decent for a home shop.
