Eastwood you call for parts, also has a 3 year warranty.

Miller and Lincoln, some of the parts are so expensive that you could buy a new Eastwood machine. Not saying Eastwood is better, but if you're just welding at home in your garage, and can get a machine that will weld the same metals for 1/2 to 1/3 the price, then why buy the more expensive one.

Anyone using the Longevity ones? I just got a Tigweld 200sx one as a present. Haven't even unboxed it yet though. Looking to weld some aluminum with a little project I've got going on.

Ive been waiting to jump into a tig for my home as I wanted to see how these units performed but after these reviews I honestly am going to purchase one within the next month.

I got mine delivered yesterday and holy crap it's nice compared to my handy mig. I was happy to see it came with a gas regulator (2 gauge style) and some consumables to get you started. Will be picking up some gas tonight and can't wait to play with it.

I like my unit so far. Stinker was the freaking welding supply store gave me nitrogen instead of argon...grrr Was wondering why I couldn't get a puddle lol

Went back and exchanged it no problem, stinks I wasted a ton of tungsten.

For anyone in the market, just saw the Eastwood Tig is on sale for $699. Not sure if it's a better deal than the always cheaper everlast though.

Been waiting on getting one for awhile and finally pulled the trigger. Doubt its going get much cheaper. Although it says 699 once you goto checkout it was 749. Called them up and they honored the 699 price.

Ordered Monday and showed up on Tuesday. So far customer service is awesome like everyone already has said!!

Norstar 200 ac/dc is under $800. Great machine for the price. Had two at work for portable welding when 220v isnt always available. You can weld 1/8 all day at half power on 110v. It is a dual voltage machine and has an adapter for 220v as well.

I have a eastwood miller and htp. By far the best learner machine is the eastwood. Can do almost anything necessary for dirt cheap.
