Excellent all control options, Slim and lighter, torch lead flexibility, and finence option is realy very helpful.

Just started TIG welding again after 30 years. This is a very good machine but it needs some practice. Youtube videos make it look easy but it takes some work to get the welds flowing. Easy to use in the garage on 13A plug but powerful enough to do any job restoring my motorbikes.

I'm just starting to use the machine when I write this. But she works as I expected. And the videos on the rtechwelding youtube channel are a good help at the start.

I use this to develop and expand my welding skills in my home workshop, which includes manufacturing and vehicle repairs. I bought to give me the versatility to include aluminium. I chose this product after internet research of reviews and other recommendations, this came out consistently in the most appropriate bracket for what I required.
