This will probably be my last post on this thread Ö some of you are probably saying Ö itís about time ... lol.
This, my first purchase of an Everlast product has been quite the adventure. I havenít tried out the pedal yet but thatís me learn everything the hard way ... then when I introduce stuff that makes it easier itís like WOW. Thatís how I started welding in general first stick, then flux core, then Mig , then Ozy/acetylene the DCEN now AC/DC TIG Ö again the hard way 2T. I know my aluminum welds look like fidoís butt but it will all come around eventually. I am already figuring out things and that too is how my learning process works Ö I did the reading; I watched the videos, researched and contemplated but when it all comes down to brass tacks the way I get things going is by jumping in and Ö sink or swim; a few things I already figured out Ö aluminum goes much better when you pre heat, Iím using too large of a tungsten for the amount of current Iím using and I need to upgrade to a larger gas tank. In closing I want to say that so far my 200DX has lived up to my expectations and then some Ö as soon as I start taking full advantage of the tremendous amount of control offered I know my welding will make strides Ö everything Iíve owned to this point has been bare bones. Saturday when I took a break from my aluminum practice and spent a half an hour doing a steel art piece just to find my center Ö this is what I made Ö sick art from a sick mind Ö LMAO.
