Looking forward to trying the new Micro Tig 185 and the Super Cut 50P,Need these for projects and small maintenance around the farm. As said in my conversation with Richard,i am a past manufacturing plant owner partner that had large and mid sized fabricating equipment.
Fab Capability 1/4" High Tensile Steel 12' ,Break and Shear 1/4" 12', Welding Machines Qty 35 Miller 300 machines and 8 Chemtron 400 ,Along with a couple of 400 amp lincoln barrel welders for maintenance work.And Various other machine shop and fabricating tools saws ect.
We ran mostly .045 solid wire and a lot of Dual Shield 1/16" and 5/64"
These smaller machines have come a long way in the last 40 years,( Started Welding 1971 age 16 with a Linde Mig Tig Stick Power Supply).
Curious to see how nice these new little machines are. Thought thru the import supposed problems but after yesterday i feel at ease with the imports.
My neighbor a wrought iron fabricator brought me his invertig 160T that had quit to repair for him. Quite interesting the the 110/220 relay had stuck on 110 and did not switch when plugged into 220.
The board was burnt on a 4 year old machine no warranty $842.00 for parts. After close inspection the welder is foreign made in italy with Taiwan and other foreign country parts.
I informed him that he could purchase 2 of the same machines that just broke for the price of the board he needs.
Trying to talk him into a 200 amp AC DC Tig / Stick ,He tigs a lot of Alum and Copper sheets.
We will see if decides to order this week after my machines arrive.
