Fabrication in stainless steel and aluminium

R-Tech TIG Welder AC/DC 160 Amp 240v

Not had too much time to use my machine yet but the little I have done has been a good experience. The booklet is very good, concise and easy to follow to get you set up, it's just my skill which is the let down. I feel like I've got a lot for my money in one package with no hassle, just add gas and away we go. I would recommend this product and company to anyone from hobbyist to professional. As a hobbyist I couldn't fault the product, the service from the staff was exceptional with no hint of condescension for my lack of knowledge, just help and a good laugh. My whole experience has made me want to go back to these guys to buy all of my welding kit since I know they will give me practical, unbiased advice, as indeed they did with this purchase and having received the kit I know now that the quality of it and the advice offered is as described on their website, excellent.

R-Tech TIG Welder AC/DC 160 Amp 240v

The quality of this set seems good. Welded stainless so far, yet to try ally. The knobs do exactly what they say, the hf start and slope out are really tight and effective. The machine has a nice "feel" to it, in my welding career I've been spoiled with top notch *** sets and specialist gasses, this is not a million miles away from those sets. If I can, I'll check back with my aluminium results.
