R-Tech TIG Welder Digital AC/DC 260 Amp 240v

Like I say wasn’t for me but my brother he is *** away from me and I send it to him all they way there seems he is super busy and exited too with his new toy and have not heard anything bad about it

R-Tech TIG Welder Digital AC/DC 260 Amp 240v

I am using the welder for various DIY projects and was particulary impressed by the ease of use and ability to weld various types of metals. I would certainly ecommend to family and friends. This is a high quality, robust product which I am very impressed with

R-Tech TIG Welder Digital AC/DC 260 Amp 240v

General fabrication work with view to further expand. The product is excellent quality

R-Tech TIG Welder Digital AC/DC 260 Amp 240v

Used in a maintenace workshop for general repairs/fabrication. Reccommended to any engineering workshop to enable aluminium fabrication/repairs. The unit seems robust enough, time will tell but I'm confident it will be fine.

R-Tech TIG Welder Digital AC/DC 260 Amp 240v

I use the machine for race car custom fabrication, 10/10 for the machine I’ve purchased! I’ve already recommended to several friends to purchase machines fro R-Tech
