What a nice bit of kit this is ....It came very well packed and the delivery was excellent with a 1 hour time slot sent to me with 24 hours notice ...had it up and running in 5 mins once a plug was fitted .....I will be making a video of this in operation soon

I am an engineer that enjoys building anything from cars to light fittings. I had had exposure to professional welding gear all my life and would rate this tig right up there with the best of them.

As far as the machine is concerned, I am definitely not qualified to judge its performance. I work in an athletic equipment repair shop. We don't really need a TIG welder, but always trying to broaden our skills, so we bought this machine in order to learn. I can only say that it feels great (strong and stable) as a stick welder (I can stick weld alright) and I managed to run some decent TIG beads on mild steel in just my first 30 minutes of operation. I guess this is good.

Welder seems of good quality.

I use the set for mild steel, Ali and stainless and it doesn't miss a beat! It looks good too!!
