    TIG Welders...

    Who's got one and what is it? I'm looking at a new one and just wanted to know what you guys are running?

    i've got the miller syncrowave 200..
    love it. ive done a bunch of aluminum and stainless with it.
    its allready paid for itself with side jobs. + a little extra too.
    I've havn't found something yet that i couldn't weld with it.

    the only thing I DIS-like about it is the air-cooled torch. I wanna upgrade to a liquid-cooled torch and chiller next.. if your doing alot of thicker aluminum then you will find yourself getting the torch to hot to hold with the air cooled head.

    Bro, that's funny. I'm looking at that exact one as well as the Precision TIG 225.

    I do have 15 hours on both machines. It's going to be a tough choice as i do like both machines very much. I think it might come down to price.

    Also, It will be very rare for me going over anything 1/4" aluminum. You think the air cooled torch would do me fine?
